Heydon Village Tea Shop
Heydon is one of the most quintessentially English villages you’ll find and this tea shop is situated right in the heart of it. Heydon Village Tea Shop is perfectly styled to fit comfortably into this privately-owned settlement, with tasteful decor and pleasing crockery.
Owners Karl and Cindy create a welcoming, friendly environment and despite being in a sleepy village, their tea shop is always busy. There is seating inside and out, and on a sunny day sitting outside and looking out onto the green is just perfect.
The menu is comforting with an impressive selection of home-baked cakes. Light lunches include homemade soup, sandwiches and jacket potatoes. All food and drinks are prepared fresh to order and local Norfolk suppliers include B. Robertson Butchers in Reepham; Husk, Heydon’s very own artisan bakery; Bray’s Cottage Pork Pies; and Cley Smokehouse. The cordials are exceptional, supplied by Norfolk Cordials.
Traditional afternoon teas are served daily – it’s essential to book.
On our visit we sat outside with friends, wrapped in crocheted blankets. We went for jacket potato with garlic mushrooms, sandwiches and sausage rolls. Despite vowing we wouldn’t have puddings we couldn’t resist. They were just too tempting and we weren’t disappointed.
At the time of writing, Heydon Village Tea Shop is open Wednesday to Sunday, 10am-4.30pm (subject to seasonal changes).
