Great tea rooms with the largest menu of teas I have ever seen. The menu is so tempting and nothing is a failure as everything is freshly cooked. You'll find it hard to make a choice though. Just keep going back to keep your tastebuds satisfied. NB - cash only.

A lovely shop with a picturesque interior. I've been twice and it is certainly where I will take visitors to impress them with Canterbury. The waitstaff is helpful and friendly, they have a large choice of teas with a menu describing each one. The scones are perfect and their Victorian Sponge cake is the best I have ever tasted.

Visited the Moat Tea room today and treated my friend to afternoon tea. What a lovely tea room the mote tea rooms are. The scones were lovely and we shared the chocolate cake and the victoria sponge cake they were both delicious. Great value and also staff were really friendly and I would definately return here. Thank you.

We just had to order tea when it looked so good from the outside. The wide choice of tea and homemade cakes made this a great place for the get up and go we needed. Would visit more if I lived closer.

We were in Canterbury for the day and popped in here as the place looked olde worlde. The scones were lovely and fresh and the teas (chosen from a very wide selection) were delicious, all using nice china crockery. Marked down because of a 25 minute wait for our order to be fulfilled.

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
