The Courtyard, which offers home-cooked lunches and teas, is located in Rose and Crown Walk, between the main square and the common, and is already a popular location for local shoppers and visitors to the town.

“We are delighted to have found the right location in Saffron Walden for the sixth Tiptree tea room,” said Ian Thurgood joint managing director of Wilkin & Sons.

“Each Tiptree tea room has its own distinct character and we are looking forward to working with present owner Derek Thompson, who plans to continue his involvement for the coming months.”

Mr Thompson said: “It gives me great pleasure that a company as well known as Wilkin and Sons have taken over The Courtyard. I believe this will be very good for the development and the future of the café.

“The Courtyard has been a great passion and enjoyment to me and I am pleased that I will be there for a few months to greet many of the customers who have become friends.”

All six Tiptree tea rooms are located in Essex and offer traditional cream teas, cakes and lunches. They also include the Visitor Centre at Wilkin & Sons’ home in Tiptree, the Essex Rose at Dedham, the Lock on the waterfront at Heybridge Basin, the Lordship Tea Room and Food Hall at Writtle and the Cart Lodge at Chigborough, near Heybridge.
