Ordered food straight away. They “forgot” my order and then finally went to make the food when it arrived, it wasn’t what I ordered at all. So I never had the food I originally ordered. The cups they provided for water had mould in them...More

I visited the tearooms for the first time today with family members, which was a pleasant experience and we will definitely returning. The staff was welcoming, and very helpful and the food was delicious.

This place has so much potential but it is completely let down by so many points. I went on a Sunday afternoon and it was literally run by kids. No customer service skills no hospitality no nothing. Wouldn’t let us order food, said the kitchen...More

I visited here for lunch with my husband. I ordered a prawn wrap which was of pretty standard quality. I felt that the wrap was ridiculously overpriced for what I received - a wrap with a small salad garnish...not even a few crisps to pad...More

Quaint little tea room with a vintage feel. Lovely fresh food and friendly staff. Very welcoming to children too. Service was very good. Afternoon teas looked lovely and pretty reasonably priced. Will definitely return. Highly recommended!

The owner needs to train staff to ensure they deal efficiently and systematically with customers. Clearly the young staff are not able to deal with the demands of a busy cafe on a Saturday. However busy a cafe is - even if it is FULL...More

I'm really not sure as I've never actually had afternoon tea there. Best to phone them, staff are very nice.

I think Christine is trying to contact the Riverside Tearoom. Christine; perhaps phone them, as maybe they're having issues with their website?

Eynsford's little pocket of happiness. At Riverside Tearoom we serve the very best fresh food and drinks in a quaint and relaxed riverside setting overlooking the village ford. Here you can enjoy genuine, home-made food prepared in our kitchen and sample some of the world's finest hand-filtered coffees and speciality teas. We're located in the heart of Darenth Valley, surrounded by picture-perfect rolling hills and lavender farms - the inspiration behind the sensory experience within. More than the average tearoom, you'll discover an environment full of sights, smells and sounds that will cocoon you from the outside world and whisk you away to a world of calm.
