Opening Information

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.

A little bit of what you fancy does you good, or so they say. We provide an area for the community to come together, whether it be for a social lunch, afternoon tea or your own private function. Whatever you choose, our friendly atmosphere is the perfect place to relax.

Set 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. A menu such as quiche and a selection of deli salads finishing off with lemon tart and tea or coffee. 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 here at Mayfield Farm Bakery, our traditional afternoon tea 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. We are now also offering a variety of speciality and themed afternoon teas throughout the year including a Chocolate Lovers tea, a Spooky Halloween tea and of course a Christmas afternoon tea.

When we arrived they were hot expecting us, then found the booking, I think more sandwiches would of been nice and Less small cakes. There was a terrible amount of wasps which was a little unpleasant and I do feel that the afternoon tea is slightly overpriced.

We enjoyed the surroundings but were disappointed with the afternoon tea. There was no menu of the sandwiches to let us know what the fillings were so we had to guess and the amount of food was very small. Not much variety in the cake selection and the scone was tiny.

The course was informative and useful, but very little breadmaking as such. One of the students was after sour dough breadmaking which was covered in less than 5 minutes with no real instruction. Overall a good experience and bread to take home which my family loved.

Everybody enjoyed their visit, sorry we have arrived earlier, but it worked out very well, Elfyn gave us a very good introduction to the history of the company and every bread you baked, afternoon tea was excellent, staff was very friendly and helpful. We would like to come again to the lunch, would you be able to offer a simple hot menu, like sausage and mash and so on We wish you well in your new adventure and look forward to see you soon Kind regards Inna Parkins Miami Motors ltd

The food was delicious, very well organised. We had alerted them to a nut allergy and it was catered for brilliantly. Really pleased with the amount of food we had and it was delicious.

We had the Festive Afternoon Tea and it was divine. The sandwiches were so beautifully prepared and the fillings were perfect. The whole experience was beautiful. The only reason I've marked it with 3 stars for atmosphere was as we were there early there weren't many other diners so it was quite quiet. Our server even got me some plastic containers that would have been thrown away to use for my chicken feed. Exceptional service in a lovely tearoom.
