Silver teapots, proper tea and cakes and scones that are first class. Friendly staff. Scones are freshly made, a sensible size and come with a pot of very clotted cream. Date cake was something I'd never had before but as I love dates, I thought...More

We really enjoy the weekly lunch time visit. Although we usually choose the same food there is a good variety on the menu. The staff are extremely friendly and it is clear they know many of the customers, like us, who must visit fairly often.

Really nice and friendly staff but felt could do with removing a table to give more room as very close to everyone and not much room to move around which was sad as a very nice place xxx

Description
Welcome to our historic tea house! Alfriston was granted its market charter in 1406, and the house at Badgers dates from 1510 – over 500 years old!
