Tea Rooms Southend

Tea Rooms Southend, come and sample our freshly ground coffee or a soothing pot of our traditional leaf tea. Whether you’re in need of a quiet area to work or a comfortable corner to chat with friends and family, Potash is the place to be! The hot summer attracted many new customers and wildlife to our well designed garden. Cyclists, walkers and dog lovers are many of our regular visitors who have enjoyed a warm and welcoming luncheon or delicious cream tea.


Browse our menu to find out more about the many home made dishes we can offer. All our ingredients our locally sourced from well known suppliers such as Bakers Dozen at Golden Cross, La Vallee Farm Shop on Lower Road and Rayleigh Fruit & Veg. Many of our soups are prepared where available, with herbs and vegetables grown on site or from our nursery. Daily eggs from our free range chickens are also used for breakfasts, salads and sandwiches.


Since opening the tea room September 2014 we have been lucky to work with a local baker, who is well known in the area for her home baked muffins and cakes. We offer many of your favourite cake recipes including mouth watering Carrot and Courgette, Chocolate Oreo, or traditional Victoria Sponge & Lemon Drizzle, to name a few. Speciality cup cakes, biscuits, chocolate brownie and flapjacks are some of our other tasty offerings. Gluten free cup cakes such as Lemon Drizzle, Squash and Apricot muffins and Date flapjack are also regularly on offer.


During the cold winter months, warm your toes by the wood burner in our cosy, corner ‘Snug’. Enjoy some homemade hearty soup with a freshly baked crusty roll or a hot jacket potato with a filling of your choice. We also have some vegetarian menu items and with notice can meet the needs of more specialist dietary requirements.
