Come and meet our baker Nick Anderson at Mayfield Farm Bakery and see the bread being made by hand, the traditional way. Enjoy a cup of coffee in the beautiful rural setting and choose your bread and cakes to take home.
We believe in good, wholesome food, traditionally made without the use of unnecessary preservatives and colourings. We are keen to use the very best ingredients and from the closest source, keeping food miles to a minimum and our impact on the environment as small as possible.
Mayfield Farm Bakery & School was established in 2010 by Nick and Jane Anderson. Nick has been a baker all his life having worked for his family business for many years and more recently opening his own bakeries in Epping and Cambridge.
This bakery was opened in a farm yard setting with the aim of being very experimental and fundamentally different from a typical High Street Bakery pushing the boundaries of the excepted usual breads.

About Mayfield Farm Bakery + School
A little bit of what you fancy does you good, or so they say. Our tea room serves the tastiest meals and our most delicious treats. Whatever you choose, our friendly atmosphere is the perfect place to relax.
First thing in the morning you may like to enjoy a cooked breakfast – The Mayfield breakfast consists of fried egg, bacon, sausage, tomatoes, mushrooms and black pudding, or perhaps you would prefer Eggs Benedict – two poached eggs served on a bed of smoked bacon and served with hollandaise sauce.
Light lunches are served in the tea rooms, the menu changes regularly depending on the fresh ingredients that are available from Spittlefield’s Fruit and vegetable market. All the food is prepared here on the premises either by the cooks in the kitchen or our bakers and patisserie chef. Typically we have a homemade soup, deli board, quiche of the day, pasties, etc. For pudding we always have a selection of patisserie to choose from. We serve a limited selection of wine and beer and Luscombes organic fruit juices in addition to teas and coffees.
Afternoon Tea is very popular in the Tea Rooms, and consists of a selection of freshly made sandwiches, the bread is finely sliced and the crusts removed making perfect dainty afternoon sandwiches, we only use real butter and the fillings are also freshly prepared or cooked here. Two Dainty scones made by our bakers on the day of your Afternoon Tea – they are served with Thursday Cottage jam made in Tiptree in Essex. The Clotted Cream comes from The Devon Cream Company who produce the best quality clotted cream available. Four mini patisserie, all our patisserie is made by our patisserie chef’s – they will make for you, on the day a selection of delicate cakes and pastries taking into account your special dietary requirements.
I was waiting for a friend to arrive and I said I would wait till she arrived before I would order but I think every member of staff came and asked me if I wanted to order
Always a lovely meal
Very friendly staff and excellent breakfast

Staff are always welcoming, no complaints about the food, it’s delicious!
Had a lovely meal with my neighbour, great service, great food - it's a firm favourite of ours!
A very enjoyable day. Learnt some good skills to carry forward into baking bread at home
We were all delighted with our visit. We were especially pleased with the attention to our 100-year-old relative - you even presented her with a card and present! The lactose intolerant member of the party was also well catered for. We felt the service was just right; attentive without being intrusive. Thankyou for a very pleasant afternoon.
ALWAYS LOVELY TO COME HERE AS THE STAFF ARE SO FRIENDLY AND NOTHING IS TOO MUCH TROUBLE ..
Staff are very friendly and helpful. Very busy with lovely atmosphere. Really enjoyed my visit .
From the very start when I called up to book I spoke to a lovely lady on the phone who couldn’t have been more helpful, friendly and polite. The food was wonderful as always and the staff are so warm and welcoming. The food is fresh and the selection of breads and cakes are amazing. Scones are huge and to die for! Very generous portions for afternoon tea, so much so that we asked to take the rest home with us and the staff very happily provided us with boxes. We’ll definitely be returning.
The setting was so relaxing, the staff were very friendly and attentive, and the food was lovely. We will be coming back again. Thank you
Always a good experience at Mayfield, plan to have something different but always choose the rarebit, it’s soooo yummy!
Being a very hot day I think a couple of fans would be appreciated
Lovely atmosphere, the food is incredible with a good variety of choices. Great service!
Fab food and good service. Lovely place to chill 👍
Afternoon tea was really lovely, great staff and a great atmosphere. Will definitely go to mayfields again!
The quality of the food was first class. It felt a little too rushed and expensive for the volume received. Great for pensioners although not adequate for grown men
We have visited Mayfield on many occasions. Service is always welcoming & we never feel rushed. Food of good, consistent quality. Lovely selection of breads available... obviously! Do the bread making course, brilliant & I learnt so much.
Great service and food as always 😊
Very tasty and enjoyable meal highly recommended
Always enjoy coming to Cafe/Shop. Not always easy to get a booking, especially at short notice! You could do with "prettying up" the exterior of the building - e.g. flower pots/baskets. Sandra Rose
I had a yummy lunch with my friend. A great, relaxed atmosphere and friendy service.
