"We visited for a Tea-Hen-Party and was blown away! My friend organised to have the room upstairs for the party (there was 14 of us in total). The design is faultless, lovely cottage, fresh feel with blues, pinks and white interior. The food is impeccable we had ordered the Winter Celebration Afternoon Tea - this included around 15 different items that came on 3 tier and 5 tier stands! My favourites were the Pan-fried seabass in a Mediterranean bread broth bowl to the Pea and sorrel Veloute with potato dauphinoise and roasted salmon (only 2 of the 8 savoury items) followed by my favourites; Chestnut Mont Blanc meringue and the Black Forest inspired Opera Cake. We had a great time and lovely to be in our own area and able to swap seats and chat with others of the wedding party! The staff were lovely, so helpful, kind and knew exactly what they were serving and went above and beyond to make the experience for all one to remember! Definitely recommend a visit to all!"

"We organised an afternoon tea in the White Room for a Hen Party of 16 people and it was fabulous!! Ian and the team made the planning very easy and were happy to accommodate our requests to make the day as special as possible for the bride to be. On the day the team went above and beyond to help us get the room decorated, to ensure that all of the guests were tended to, and also made a delicious celebration cake which everyone was raving about!! The food was equally impressive, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it! I would highly recommend the Woburn Coffee House to anyone looking to plan a special event, you most definitely will not be disappointed."

"Outstanding! My Auntie and Mum brought me here as a Pre-Wedding Treat yesterday, it was a total surprise and what a wonderful surprise it was. The food was out of this world. The service was fantastic and the Coffee House itself is just gorgeous, so unique! Absolutely loved it and cannot wait to return."

"My friend and family booked this for a mini Baby Shower and I have to say it was probably the best afternoon tea I've ever had! I love that the savoury options aren't sandwiches but instead a delicious canape selection. The cakes and scones were all beautifully presented and delicious. The venue also beautiful and very relaxed. I love the traditional cups and saucers too! Will be visiting again! Worth every single penny!"

"Went to a lovely Baby Shower here and it is a real girlie treat. Food is gorgeous and rich, especially nice with a glass of bubbles too. Makes a lovely gift for someone."

"We had the most wonderful time at the Woburn coffee house. Karen (the gorgeous owner) suggested to make the Shower extra special we could hire 'The White Room' upstairs and it was the best! So elegant and decorated so beautifully, we had the room from 12- 6 and laughed, ate and drank to our hearts delight. The staff were more than efficient and so sweet. The food was better than any London afternoon tea - it was unusual combinations and cleverly put together to help indulge to the maximum. Not your usual finger sandwiches and scones- there was decadent baileys desert, sea bass canapés etc. Would recommend to anyone wanting to do something really special!"

"I booked the private "White Room" at Woburn Coffee House for my friend's Baby Shower a couple of weeks ago, which proved to be a fantastic decision! All the team at Woburn Coffee House went above and beyond in ensuring that the Mummy to be and all the guests had a fantastic time and were well looked after. The venue itself is absolutely beautiful, making the perfect location for any special event, with a relaxed yet classy atmosphere (not to mention it looks gorgeous in photos!). We had the celebration afternoon tea which was absolutely exquisite - it not only looked stunning but tasted delicious and you could tell that a lot of care and attention had gone into it. I thoroughly recommend Woburn Coffee House - whether it is for a bigger special occasion, or just an impromptu treat, be sure to pay a visit (and book in advance!)."

"We had a lovely afternoon tea for a Surprise Baby Shower. The food was delicious, the service was great and the Coffee House Reservations Team were so helpful when I was arranging it all. Highly recommended!"


"Had the most lovely afternoon tea for my Baby Shower here, venue is beautiful and the afternoon tea was amazing. They even did the most incredible gluten free afternoon tea I've ever had!"
