Formerly The Rude Strawberry, the new tearoom has been given a lick of paint and more than a touch of vintage by new owner Amanda Richardson.

Put on your finest smock and get your victory rolls ready for your visit, where 1940s music plays softly in the background, pastel-coloured bunting hangs from the ceiling, and flowers, oversized tea cups and suitcases adorn the nooks and crannies.

Open for breakfasts, elevenses, lunch and afternoon tea, dishes at The Strawberry Teapot are made with locally sourced ingredients where possible, with the highest quality loose tea, cafetiere single estate coffee being served alongside Sudbury’s own Marimba hot chocolate.  

Gluten free and vegetarian options available as standard at The Strawberry Teapot.

"I honestly believed that for some people dreams are just that.

Something you did when you stared out the window on a rainy day when your mind wondered to all the things that you wanted to do, should have done or what ifs.  I was about 17 when I dreamed of running a vintage tea room.  

When I met my husband Neil on our first date, apparently I talked non stop about it, so much so, he went home and painted the beautiful picture of the strawberry that hangs in my shop and which is now the logo I use as much as I can.

At 44, with my family begging me not to feed them anymore cake as their waist lines couldn't take it, my children had grown up and I felt if I didn't do it now I would never do it.  Time would pass me by and the excuses would carry more weight.

So here I am in Friar's Street, in the beautiful town of Sudbury, with good food, delicious cakes and great conversation if you have a moment to stop by.  

We look forward to seeing you soon, love Amanda x "
