Flora Tea Rooms, Dunwich Beach, Suffolk, October 2016

I’d like to tell you about the Flora Tea Rooms, Dunwich Beach, Suffolk, but when we got back to the car park just after 3pm after a lovely bike ride, they were closed. Who would want a cup of tea and slice of cake after 3pm? Pretty much everyone that I can think of, but this is the “Linda Smith law of tea shops”. They have always closed (for no good reason) about 10 minutes after you want to use them.

A lovely location, right by the beach, next to a huge free car park (donations to local charities welcome). Seems like an ideal place to have a tea room that opens until at least the early evening. But on this pleasant October day, it seems not. To be fair, a huge coach of pensioners from Brentwood had just departed, so they’d probably sold a few cups of tea and slices of cake already, but other people would like some too.

Stop closing ridiculously early tea shops!
