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

Took Mum for a birthday afternoon tea. Was one of the best we have had. The sandwich selection was very good quality, beef and horseradish, tuna and cue, cheese and salmon. Cakes were yummy but couldn't finish them.

My Mum, Mother-in-Law and me visited Peggotty's for a Mother's Day Treat on Saturday. We all absolutely loved the atmosphere, food and service. Delicious sandwiches, scones, cake, tea and coffee. Would heartily recommend and will certainly be visiting again. Thank you for an enjoyable tea:-)

Peggotty's is a bit like stepping back in time, it is exceptional quaint and cosy. Which means, unless it is the summer time when you can sit outside in the garden, it does get full very quickly. Much to my disappointment when I meet my...More

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!
