Wanted to stop and have a coffee while on a visit into Chatham and came in here. Chatham is usually a pretty grim place but this place gets my vote. It's a touch of class and quirkiness one wouldn't normally associate with Chatham. The service...More

Tea for 2 is £28.50. It is a bit dearer if you have prosecco or Champagne. Never had it but it looks gorgeous.
