“Perfect scones in a perfect setting!”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

We went to the Cobbles tea room on the first stop of our 'Scone Crawl' (don't ask!) in Rye. It was perfect! We were seated immediately in the most gorgeous room and offered the option of the courtyard. The waitresses were so friendly and brought us tea straight away in a lovely teapot. But the scones!! They were homemade and gorgeous, you got two for the price that you got one at other places in Rye and they happily brought us extra clotted cream. A delicious traditional cream tea (we even debated popping in again before driving home!)

“Our favourite”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

This is our 2nd time here, we visited in 2011 and fell in love with it. 3years on and newly married we love it still! We ordered the £7.50 tea, cake, sandwiches and cream scones. Such a bargain price and so worth the money! The girl that served us was so friendly and polite. Tall and blonde you were lovely. The cake is a little sweet for my liking but I'm a cake maker my self so that's me being fussy ;) love it here and will always recommend and will come back again!

“Miss Marple land”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

This is a two up two down house up a narrow lane off the High Street in Rye. The toilet is in an outhouse round the back. For one moment I was transported back fifty years as an old lady dressed like Miss Marple came out of a wicket gate of an adjoining cottage in the bright sunshine, said good morning and slowly made her way to the High Street. It was a magical moment. Tea and coffee and cakes perfectly served in a delightful setting.

“Great coffee & home made cakes”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

Sweet little cafe - tucked away and one of the few I could find that served fresh decaffinated coffee. We loved the home made cakes. Could do with more comfortable furniture but the staff are efficient and prices are reasonable.
