Customer votes propel Thaxted tea room into Top 10 Great Cake Places of Britain

08:59 05 October 2013

A tea room in Thaxted has secured a place as one of the top 10 Great Cake Places in Britain, thanks to votes by satisfied cake-loving customers.

The Allegra publishing team that launched the search, explored the length and breadth of the country visiting and sampling cakes from hundreds of bakeries, shops, cafes, tea rooms and hotels to find places worthy of inclusion in the publication, Great Cake Places of Britain.

Poppy’s, which offers a quintessential English tea room experience, serving brunch, lunch, teatime treats and a popular traditional afternoon tea, was voted into the top 10 by its customers.

Owner Liza Mitchell said: “Thank you to everybody who voted for us. I am absolutely delighted that Poppy’s Tea Room has been selected and overwhelmed by the level of support from customers.

“As a small, independent business this national accolade and endorsement means a lot.”
