The most delightful Afternoon Tea in Essex
Saturday 9th May 2020
This is at a secretly tucked-away barn in Essex countryside gardens. You'll need to book early as THE SECRET SCONERY (run by The English Cream Tea Company) tends to sell out. We're not open for many dates each year because the rest of the time this charming barn building is where the Scone Gnomes create the goodies and hampers that customers order. The barn can’t be seen from any roads, so we’ll send you directions once you book. The Secret Sconery is not available as an every-day Tea Room alas but just for special events (such as Mothering Sunday, Father's Day etc) and for your private bookings.
