Time for Tea

Indulge in the quintessentially English pursuit of taking tea! 

Afternoon Tea(British) light meal consisting of tea, sandwiches and cakes. (Collins English Dictionary)

Tea-time-Copyright-D-BoguéSome of us love the whole works...dainty bone china cups and saucers, vintage teapots, a variety of loose-leaf tea with a tea strainer, majestic cake stands, napkins...

some love cheerful bunting, floral embroidered table cloths, pretty flowers in vintage jugs on the table...


whatever you prefer, we can guide you to the best places!


Cream Tea: a light meal of scones served with jam and thick cream. (Cambridge Dictionary)

We all seem to love something naughty and sweet to go with our tea! More than dunking a biscuit or two…we love homemade cakes and a scrumptious cream tea consisting of freshly baked scones with jam and clotted cream…yum!

Now the question is...cream then jam on your scone, or jam then cream? In Devon they cover with cream and add jam on top, but in Cornwall they spread the jam first before piling on the clotted cream.

In Kent we really don't mind how you do it...we just want you to enjoy every mouthful of your scrumptious Kentish Cream Tea!

Find out more about places to go for Afternoon Tea and Cream Teas.

And, remember, in our tea rooms you can choose tea, coffee or any other beverage...and at other times of the day, too!
