Harriets Cambridge Tearoom is Reopening

We couldn’t be more excited about this great news: Harriets Tearoom in Cambridge is reopening today, the 27th of July 2020!

We have certainly missed their cream tea picnics onboard.

That’s right, we the Traditional Punting Company, have been partnered with Harriets Tearoom over the last year and they have been been delighting our customers with their luxurious afternoon cream teas on our chauffeured Cambridge Punting Tours. We cannot wait to offer our customers their beautiful picnics once again over the summer through our delightful picnic punting package.

Harriets Tearoom provides a wonderful dining experience whether it be breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea. Situated on Green Street in the heart of central Cambridge, Harriets entices you with their freshly baked goods, their famous afternoon tea with mouth-watering scones, while the ambience subtly reminds you of the ‘old days’. Waitresses of Harriets are dressed elegantly in period uniforms demonstrating a sense of the ‘yesteryear’ which compliments the Victorian-esque decor. Stepping inside the tearoom, you are instantly welcomed by friendly staff showing you to your table to begin the true quality service of which Harriets has become renowned for.

During lockdown Harriets did not want their customers to face this time without their home-made treats, so they focused their efforts on delivering picnics to be enjoyed in the comforts of ones home. Whilst they continue to offer a delivery service, now that their tearooms are back in action everyone can again be enchanted by the time spent eating out at their fabulous venues.  The tearooms at Harriet’s also host regular live piano performances, further enhancing the experience of those choosing to dine or those simply wishing to stop by for some loose leaf tea and a delightful macaroon. At Harriets children are also welcomed, giving you the opportunity to treat your loved little ones to a truly memorable, indulgent experience.
