About

Over 50 years ago, John Wilkin began collecting the paraphernalia of preserve making and Essex village life. The John Wilkin Collection is now jam packed with artefacts! Get a real taste of Tiptree in the building where the famous jam was first prepared. Enjoy freshly made lunches and home-made cakes in our quiet, relaxed tea room or terrace.

  • Currently closed - We would like to thank all our customers for their support through this challenging year. It is with great sadness that, following the latest government advice, we have now taken the decision to close all of our Tiptree Tea Rooms and shops from Thursday, 5th November. We believe that it is in the best interests of our staff and customers to remain closed until it is once again safe to open. We can’t wait to welcome you back to our Tiptree Tea Rooms once we are able to. The smell of freshly baked scones will fill the air and our friendly staff will be here to greet you with a big smile and a nice cup of tea.
