Visited on Saturday, weather was lovely and warm. We sat out in the garden and had sandwiches, scones with cream and jam followed by freshly baked cakes.
The setting was very nice and the service excellent.

This quaint tea room is the best I have been to in Kent, and I imagine that it is hard to beat! It is family run and we have always been served quickly and efficiently by very friendly staff. Everything served is baked fresh that morning. The cakes are all delicious and range from traditional chocolate, lemon etc to gooseberry, pistachio and lime and many others. The scones are always light and fluffy served with cream and a selection of homemade jams. The sandwiches and soups are very tasty. There is a wide choice of loose leaf teas served in gorgeous china. The tea room is tastefully decorated with log fires in the winter (so cosy you do not want to leave!) and in the summer you can sit in a fantastic garden with roses, lavender etc. We are regulars here and have visited most weekends for about 15 years - if that does not speak of its quality I do not know what would! It is best to get there early as there are often queues but definitely worth the wait.

Went as a large group on a busy Sunday afternoon. Staff super efficient and ever smiling. Served quickly and the cakes were amazing. Couldn't fault it.

This is the best afternoon tea I have had in England. Delicious Egg sandwiches, light and tasty scones with cream and jam and a aelection f six mouthwatering cakes...and served in a lovely english garden. Well worth the visit and a regular stop on summer weekends for us!

I decided to take my children here and shouldn't have bothered. If you want service with a smile then don't go here. Food and drinks were plonked down by a miserable, stressed looking woman who had nothing to say. Far too expensive for what it is and definitely not worth it.
