4th October 2023: The Return of the Marquee

The cold weather is returning and so is our marquee! This heated extension ensures more of our customers can enjoy unobstructed views of the lake and plenty of cake whilst staying warm and dry through the chilly weather.

Each of the six tables inside our marquee extension has its own heater, and the clear sides of the structure allow for a cosy indoor-outdoor feeling! Strings of lights adorn the ceiling to ward off any winter gloom.

We also welcome dogs into the marquee! As long as your furry friend is on a lead, you can enjoy some shelter together and indulge in a steaming coffee to warm-up for hands!

Wow, we can’t believe we’re saying this but RECIPES IN MIND: BAKING THROUGH LOCKDOWN is finally here!!!

In April 2020 we asked our customers, friends, family, local chefs and 3rd cousins twice-removed to submit the recipes that they’d been baking through lockdown so that we could put together a book to raise money for Norfolk and Waveney Mind. As everyone became isolated, many turned to baking as a way to provide physical and mental stimulation and comfort and the outpouring of support was incredible.

“Recipes in Mind: Baking through lockdown” has now gone to print and is available for pre-order on our website – www.orangerytearoom.co.uk – under the ‘Shop’ tab! Books will be ready for delivery or to be purchased directly from the tearoom from the tearoom from 12th December 2020! It is a beautiful hardback book, with 50 recipes, personal quotes and a foreword written by none other than Bake Off royalty Prue Leith ! All proceeds from the book will go directly to Norfolk and Waveney Mind to support the fantastic work they do in our region!

It will make the perfect Christmas present for any avid baker, and in years to come we hope that it will be a reminder of the ways in which we all got through this incredibly challenging year.

Our talented staff members have lovingly baked and photographed each recipe that was submitted, and with the help of our friends at Production Bureau Ltd we could not be more proud of the finished product! Thank you for all the support and submissions – we hope you love it just as much as we do!
