Welcome to Really Rather Good Coffee House and Tea Room. We hope you enjoy your experience with us.
Annette and George Stanford bought Really Rather Good in 2014. Prior to that Annette had been making cakes for the previous owners since they opened the shop in 2012.
Annette jumped at the chance of buying Really Rather Good and left a 35yr career in nursing behind her. Since then we have placed our mark on the business producing simple, but good quality food for all our customers. This ranges from our freshly baked scones, cakes (one is an award winning Chocolate Guinness) and homemade soups and pate.
We are a dog-friendly shop and welcome well-behaved dogs of all shapes and sizes. They may even be given a free homemade dog treat.
Our products are sourced locally where possible. Below is an indication of our commitment to high quality, local produce.
The coffee and tea are from a local roaster in Bury St Edmunds, who has over 150 years’ experience. The coffee is an award-winning 4 bean blend that produces fantastic flavours and aromas. The loose-leaf teas, we have over twenty, are selected for their taste and colour.
We even sell bags of tea and coffee to take home to enjoy the flavour anytime. We even send abroad to the Continent, Middle East, USA and Australia. Really Rather Good tea and coffee certainly have a worldwide reputation.
The eggs, bacon and chicken are from a local farm just outside Bury St Edmunds.
Our sausage rolls are made on the premises to our own recipe.
The apple juice comes from Bradfield Combust just outside Bury St Edmunds. This award-winning juice producer grows the apples on-site, as well as the raspberries and elderflowers, pressed and bottled on-site for the fullest flavours and then transported to us.
The cakes are hand made by the owner Annette. The scones are baked daily for freshness. By controlling this baking we control the quality, ingredients and freshness of our products.
We also serve local beers from St Peters Brewery in Bungay, Aspalls in Debenham, Adnams in Southwold and Greene King in Bury St Edmunds.
