We popped in during the Christmas market. A few minutes wait then plenty of fresh tea, with cheese scones. The scones came with cheddar and yummy chutney. A lovely experience!

We spotted this tearoom during our morning wandering around Canterbury, and looking for a light lunch headed back there. Easy to find a table for 6 of us upstairs, friendly and efficient service. We tried different kinds of Kentish Huffkin, a sort of soft bap...More

Managed to get in just before they closed but were greeted as if first customer of the day. Somewhat restricted selection of scones which at least indicates fresh product rather than frozen. Good pot of tea. Charming staff. really worth a visit.

Had a decent lunch (as opposed to tea & scones). Was going to go back for afternoon tea, but didn't want to deal with the slow service. Its a fairly busy place with only two servers. It was hard to get their attention.

Hubby and I visited this cafe as there was a sign nearby saying the best tea shop in Kent. It did not disappoint. The building is beautiful and very quaint. There is the main tea shop downstairs with more seating upstairs and a 'haunted room'...More

We were a party of four friends and we visited Tiny Tims specifically for cream teas, which we all love. The tea room is lovely with a tiny, pretty courtyard where you can sit outside, which we did. However, we were all disappointed with our...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.
