We had lunch there today in the garden at the back. Its a real English country garden with just three tables and we absolutely loved it. Unlike some places in Tenterden it is not so commercialised which means you get freshly made food which is...More

Lovely tea shop,very attentive staff, serving delicious warm scones and tea cakes. Although at the end of the Hight Street, well worth the extra walk

Description
Peggotty's Tea Shop has an interesting, ever changing decor inside the shop. Perhaps a little quirky? Bright paintings and hats (!) decorate the walls. There are tables in front of the shop, and also a couple of tables in the peaceful oasis of a back garden.The tea is from the local Kent Tea Company - loose leaf only.The cakes and scones are 100% homemade. Try the tangy lemon drizzle or the nutty coffee and walnut, 2 of the favourites.Or why not just go for a plain and simple old fashioned rock cake.They will not disappoint you.If you are feeling the need to be decadent, try a scrumptious afternoon tea - consisting of sandwiches of your choice, scones jam and clotted cream, and cake of your choice to finish.The cream teas are scrumptious - how can you resist?Go on - treat yourself!
