About the employer

Cantaria was established in 2005, it is an umbrella name for three very popular eateries within the Bungay Area. Earsham Hall Tearooms- Based at the family home of Rupert & Annabel, we are delighted to be part of the ever-developing estate under the heading of 'Earsham Hall Tearooms'. Opened on 23rd March 2015 under the helm of Jason & Emily, and we haven't looked back. We serve the Afternoon Teas as a finale to the Historical Tours of Earsham Hall and still pride ourselves on all our food being freshly prepared without the use of a freezer or microwave. We are open seven days a week, and make fresh scones every morning. Our ever changing specials board is sure to have something to tempt your taste buds! The Willows Café- Situated at Three Willows Garden Centre, on Flixton Road, we are at the other end of town serving homemade food which is freshly prepared by our friendly team. We serve the same range of Teas & Freshly Ground Coffee but with the added extra of Parravani's great ice creams. Outside seating is available, and in the 'winter' months (difficult to tell when Winter is actually with us!) we have an outside canopy - which means you can bring your dogs along and enjoy our outside space. 5 Earsham Street- Most recently, we have added a new establishment, and in the very centre of Bungay. 5 Earsham Street has a coffee/wine bar at street level, but just up a few steps there is a deceptively large high vaulted versatile dining room. We can seat 30 comfortably but have had as many 50 for more intimate, private functions.
