A warm welcome from Mrs Salisbury’s

Founded in 2014, Mrs Salisbury’s epitomises the Great British tea room. We have three locations in Maldon and the surrounding areas, each of them with it’s own unique character and charm. Whether dining inside on a cosy winters day or outside in a sun trap, we offer a service like no other.

A family affair

Opened by Mrs Salisbury and her family in 2014, we’re proud to be a family run independent business based in Maldon, Essex. With over fifty years experience in the industry, we’ve refined our service into this tea room and it’s where we want to expand and grow. We specialise in breakfast, lunch & afternoon tea, not forgetting our unmissable bistro evenings and events!
