The 16th Century Essex Rose Tea House is open seven days a week, every week of the year except over the Christmas period. Traditional table service, historic quiet and comfortable surroundings and good value home-made food guarantee that you’ll be made welcome, enjoy your visit, and want to return soon.

The tea house serves a range of sandwiches, jacket potatoes, cooked lunches, hot and cold snacks, and home-baked cakes. When you next visit us, try the special: cream tea served with ‘Tiptree’ strawberry conserve and Rodda’s clotted cream.

A short stroll from the Essex Rose takes one to Dedham Mill (now a collection of expensive apartments), across the fields to Flatford lock and the site of Constable’s most famous painting – ‘the haywain’. Take a photo from the exact spot where Constable painted this latter scene and ponder what that cart was actually doing in the middle of the mill pond – cooling its wheels perhaps?
