I only came here for breakfast with my neighbour..... this time! The tea room has lots of outside seating with shade, fast service, excellent food (I had eggs Royale) & fair prices. The warm sunny weather was a welcome addition. 😊🌞 If you use the toilets you can get a sneak peek at one of the main museum display halls. I'm definitely going to come back at some point to look around the museum properly. You doo have to pay to go around, but prices are quite fair. The miniature, working, ride-on steam train is another great attraction for kids, engineering types & train enthusiasts. Check that the train is running before coming though.

Lovely place. Had the full English & tea, delicious. Some of the museum attractions are outside, so you can see them as you come in/out. Nice gardens to enjoy whilst eating.

not just your average tea room ...

Situated within a former steam pumping station (now the Museum of Power) The Steam Pump Tea Room provides a unique and charming setting to enjoy breakfast, lunch, or just a pot of tea and cake. 
There's plenty to see here too during your visit - the Museum of Power has lots to offer inside and also provides great scenery and space to wander around the grounds outside.  It takes just 25 minutes to walk along the River Blackwater into the center of Maldon, and with close proximity to Beeleigh Falls  - it's the perfect place to stop in for a well-earned rest.
