Afternoon Tea at Mayfield Farm Bakery


One round of a selection of freshly made sandwiches.

  The artisan bread is of course made in our award winning bakery using organic flour milled by W H Marriages in Chelmsford.  The bread is finely sliced and the crusts removed making perfect dainty afternoon sandwiches, we only use real butter and the fillings are also freshly prepared or cooked here.

To Book

Please telephone 01279 411774 and we will take all the details. We will ask you for any special dietary requirements and particular likes and dislikes so we can make sure that your Afternoon Tea is just how you would like it.  We tend to recommend booking from 2pm onwards when the Coffee Shop is slightly quieter.  We are making everything to order especially for you and we do like to have the table looking lovely for you when you arrive – because of the bespoke nature of our Teas we do ask for a 50% deposit on booking.

We do ask for at least 24 hours notice but as you may know the Coffee Shop does get very booked up so if it is for a special occasion do let us know as soon as possible.
