Duck & Teapot at Needham Lake celebrates 1st anniversary

On 27th May, the Duck & Teapot at Needham Lake celebrated its first anniversary since opening in May 2022.

The sun shone as visitors to Needham Lake were able to celebrate the well-loved and popular cafe. As well as anniversary food specials, a BBQ, cupcake decorating, a balloon modeller, a musician, and an artist were at the event for all to enjoy. Over 1,200 people attended the event between 12pm-2pm on the 27th May.

Faik Cavus, manager of Duck & Teapot and Cabbages & Kings said, “This was a lovely event to say thank you to our customers and the local community for supporting us over the last 12 months. We were able to greet new and regular customers and bring the community together to celebrate our 1st anniversary.

"We were so lucky to have live music from Bill Pipe, balloon modelling by Unbeleevable Balloons, and illustrations and cupcake decorating with JG Mind Doodles, all whilst visitors were enjoying the sunshine and food and drink from the cafe.

"Thank you to everyone who attended to celcebrate with us. Here's to the next 12 months and beyond."

As a popular destination for dog walkers and other visitors, the Duck & Teapot café and visitor centre has met a need for those who like to pick up a drink or some food when taking in the beautiful surroundings, and it is now a a go to destination.

Duck & Teapot is open every day 9am-7pm (it changes to 9am-4pm during winter months). The café and the Lake are fully accessible to everyone, there is free parking at Needham Lake, and the cafe welcomes well-behaved dogs (and cats) on leads inside the café and outside.

They boast a wide selection of freshly prepared food and drinks. Flat whites and hot chocolates, smoothies and milkshakes, sandwiches and more. The cake display is always fully stocked with homemade cakes and there is plenty of ice cream available too, even dog friendly ice creams and pupuccinos for your furry friends.

Any dietary requirements can be catered for, just chat to the team.

When you order food or drink at Duck & Teapot you know that your money is going back into helping young people in your community with The Mix. The café building owned by Needham Market Town Council is run by Duck & Teapot, an extension of Cabbages & Kings café in Stowmarket. Both of which are owned and run by The Mix Stowmarket.

Duck & Teapot is open every day 9am - 7pm.
