Restaurant details
Reviewed 23 January 2013

This is a really superb little tea rooms with nice snacks available. Louise who runs it is charming and can't do enough for you. Newly open so quiet so far but not for long I feel. It's like stepping into a Dickens novel. Amazing old building dated 11th Century!

Great homemade cakes and good coffee etc all well priced. She will also do private parties in a little side room. Highly recommended (we did it for a friend's birthday). Not in central Canterbury but a lovely walk along the historic Palace Street, then Northgate from the centre of town.

If you are visiting Canterbury, it's worth spending five minutes investigating the North Gate area. Centuries ago this was the "rough part" of the City and many of the old buildings remain.
Walking down the street into a blizzard we noticed the glow of a coal fire through a small street level window and had to investigate. What a gem! Ancient open fireplace - wooden beams - If you like history, if you like cosy, if you like friendly, and of course, if you like a lovely pot of Rosie Lee......;-)
