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

After spying this little tea room on my way out if Canterbury on my last visit I made sure I made time to visit in this occasion. I'm constantly looking for cafés that serve "real" homemade cakes rather the pristine generic ones from a factory and thankfully this lovely little place serves delicious ones. My only suggestion would be that... More

We had a wonderful lunch today in this lovely old tearoom. We liked all our dishes we had ordered but the mushroom omelette was exceptionally good! All dishes were served with a very good salad. The staff were friendly and helpful. Overall, we had a great lunch here!

Had a very nice lunch today. Great selection of speciality teas and coffees. Lots to pick and choose from the menu. Tucked away in a quiet corner of the city a pleasant break from the hustle and bustle.
