We visited for tea and cake during a days shopping in Canterbury following previous good reviews. Huge choice of fresh, loose leaf teas and coffee. We opted for the house blend which was very good and served in fine bone china. The millionaires shortbread was the best we have ever had and there was also a lovely choice of homemade... More

We visited our son who is a student in Canterbury and went sightseeing to show my Dad and his twin brother around the city. In need of a late lunch we found The Moat Tea Rooms. It is a 15th century building over several floors. They sell coffee and tea as well as provide sustenance for the weary traveller. In... More

We were tempted in by the cakes in the window which looked lovely. The range of coffee and tea was excellent and did not disappoint. The only thing that surprised was the tiny portion of Victoria sponge. The cake itself was ok but for the price the portion was miserly which surprised me as the tea and coffee were generous.

This is a charming little tea room. The service is excellent and the prices are pleasantly surprising. The home made cakes are beautiful and you get a decent-sized serving - plus a bag to take it away in if you can't eat it all in one sitting. We were delighted to find that they offer a much wider assortment of... More

We visited this little but cosy café dating from the XV century on a day trip to Canterbury and it was a great experience. We were greeted as soon as we came in and were directed to the floor upstairs where there is more seating available. The place is very small and only has a few tables, but it is... More

Fancy an English breakfast of tea and scones? This is the place to be. My friends and I popped in after a casual walk in town and had a delightful time. We were greeted warmly inside by our waiter, ordered some scones and tea which comes in this really cute 3- tier cake stand, and fancy tea cups. I enjoyed... More

Quaint little place, good service and a lovely pot of fresh leaf tea topped off with scone, jam and cream, even though it was raining this little tea room lifted our spirits

Sadly we didn't have enough time to enjoy this lovely tea room. A beautiful historic building, excellent tea and scones, quite a lovely experience in historic Canterbury.

This remains the best for miles around. There's a wide selection of teas and coffees, all excellent. The food is simple but good and wholesome, and the prices are fair - unlike some places in Canterbury. The new tourist cafes don't touch it. And the building itself is incredibly old and interesting.

We visited canterbury with our two grand children and looked around for a place for our lunch. The Moat tea Rooms are perfect for a traditional English sandwiches and home made cakes. Our grand children really enjoyed their toasted sandwiches and the cakes which are freshly baked on the premises. The staff are extremely well mannered and attend to customers... More
