We popped in there on a weekday afternoon
Coffee machine was out of order and they weren't doing hot food either so we ordered some cakes and a pot of tea
Tea was ok scones were dry and certainly not fresh,brownies were tasteless , would have liked to review the flapjacks but even though. We ordered and payed for them didn't get them. Staff made it clear they wanted to shut up shop
Very overpriced for what we received
WONT BE RETURNING

A firm favourite for all the family . All four generations . We have always considered this to be the best place for breakfast , brunch and lunch after a long dog walk . The menu changes quarterly and there are always lots of specials on the board . I am especially impressed with the fact that after my last review suggesting that the only thing that could possibly improve for my own personal taste was the addition of hash browns and an extended breakfast time , it was not only considered but actually added . So now ,not only have they added the hash browns they now have an all day brunch on a Sunday . Thank you so very much . It is so refreshing to know that the customers views matter ! Cant wait for our next visit . The staff are always very welcoming , helpful and efficient .

Popped in again with the dogs after walking up the beach from
Aldeburgh. The Works Breakfast still Massive and excellent; made with great ingredients very well cooked - didn’t need lunch.

We visited a couple of times, both at breakfast and lunch, it’s a warm, friendly place with excellent service and such helpful staff! The food was excellent, the menu varied and fresh. Beautiful location near the beach, we enjoyed our time in the relaxed atmosphere, which was also pet friendly.

This is superbly located eatery with good parking and access to the beach at Thorpeness. My observation only cover the breakfast period. The food is good with an excellent full English breakfast on offer. The coffee also hits the mark. Where it lets itself down is on the service front and specifically the person who appears to be the owner/manager/team leader. She comes across as brusque and borders on being indifferent towards customers. Fortunately the rest of the staff do not take her lead and are general attentive and cheerful. A bit more finesse on the leadership front would see the Thorpeness Kitchen excel.
