Lavenham Guildhall National Trust Cafe

Tasty cakes in Lavenham Guildhall's sunlit tearoom

Enjoying tea and cake in the evocative Tudor décor of the tea-room at Lavenham Guildhall in Suffolk will have you travelling back in time.

Treat yourself to a cup of tea and a tasty treat or if you’re looking for something more substantial have a light lunch from our selection of sandwiches, soups, sausage rolls and jacket potatoes. We have a selection of homemade cakes and biscuits that pair perfectly with a cup of tea or coffee on a cold day. 


On these winter days, come in out of the elements and enjoy the simple Tudor décor and the beautiful traditional chandelier. If it’s a nice day and you’re looking for some fresh air, take a seat outside that looks over the Guildhall’s Dye Garden. Children’s lunchboxes are also available. 

Tearoom Opening Times

The tearoom is open from 11am to 3.45pm, Friday to Monday. Lunch is served from 11.30 to 2.30. If you're not just popping into the tearoom and want to see more of the Guildhall, please see our opening times.
