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.

We visited today for tea with our daughter, partner and baby granddaughter. My husband had tried to have lunch here, but they were full - instead they kindly reserved a table for us for tea. Even though we had a buggy and there isn't much room downstairs, staff were kind and accomodating and couldn't have been more helpful. Tea was... More

I took my girlfriend here for cream tea and we had a fab experience, the staff were very warm and friendly and made us feel right at home. It's a very quirky old building which helps to build a great level of character to the whole experience! I'd reccomend this place to anyone.

I was recommended to the moat tea rooms by a friend of mine. She raves about it so I thought I'd give it a try. I love that it is a small family business and found the staff so friendly and the service was amazing! I was greeted as soon as I walked in and chose to sit upstairs. I... More
