Very accommodating of our exuberant toddler. Delicious breakfast and baked goods with a great selection of drinks. Definitely worth a visit when in Canterbury!

Having grown up in Canterbury I always thought of Tiny Tim's as a little bit of a tourist trap. Having been there twice, I am convinced now that it is. The tea for one is quite expensive and rather on the small side. The scone of the day, Apple and cinnamon, was nice but it was more bready than a... More

This has a good reputation and was very popular for both eating in and the take away service. Good old fashioned service and provides breakfast lunch and afternoon teas. The savoury dishes that came through looked very good and out coffee and cake was top notch. Not cheap but good quality.

I love this tearoom. Always a delight. I love that the breakfast and tea menus work all day. If you are in Canterbury this is a must do! Great choice of teas and coffees. Cakes to die for. Merry Festivals for all your staff.

Such a disappointment despite reading great reviews. Prices were so crazy high! Yet standards were very average

We came here to take timeout from Christmas shopping. Lovely quirky place with quality fresh food. Service was good but the lady taking our order did not smile much. Thankfully the other 2 made up for it and also lovely personalities to match this. Definitely worth coming in and will return for sure soon.

Quite busy tea room, but very pleasant staff. We didnt have to wait too long. Big menu, plenty of savory items on the menu plus loads of fab homemade cakes. I Had the Chaucer Rarebit which was really nice, made to order. Cakes looked amazing, must try next time.

Such a lovely old building and really tasty food. So many teas to choose from. Brought here by a friend for lunch and although its not the cheapest place to eat, you get what you pay for and the food here is excellent. We were quite a big group and the staff were happy to re-arrange furniture so we could... More

I really liked Tiny Tims. Very busy when we went but the staff had time to chat to us, explain the different types of tea and have a couple of laughs. The place is fun and quirky. I loved the ghost room upstairs and the information about the history of the building. Tea was great, cake was great. Might cost... More

We have now served over 750,000 customers in our eight years of business! That's over three quarters of a million! The reviews below represent far less than 1% of our visitors. We hope to see you soon so you may decide for yourself! Quintessential English tearoom set in an historic 400 year old haunted building beautifully decorated with 1930's inspired settings and chandeliers. A quiet luxurious oasis in the heart of bustling Canterbury. We do not take bookings, so just turn up and we will accommodate you. Please be aware that last admission is usually 15-20 minutes before closing.
