Quirky tea rooms in the lighthouse. All miss matched china which was lovely. Pot of tea, with 2 scones, cream and jam £4.95, can't be bad Took it outside to the picnic tables - and then the view........AMAZING Worth the lovely 50 minute walk to get there:-)

My first visit to mrs knott's after a fair few walks up on the cliffs. I was pleasantly surprised at how spacious the tea room was,my boyfriend and I sat outside with a cream tea,sandwich and coffee,found the selection of tea and jams very appetising and the scones were a good size. Lovely staff and service and a beautiful setting... More

We headed here after walking the The Foreshore Lighthouse Clifftop walk so it was a welcome break. Perfect views and lovely tea.

Really enjoyed the walk along the cliff-top path as did our springer spaniel, enjoying the beautiful September sunshine. Fantastic mid-point break at the Tea Rooms. Delicious cream teas, friendly staff and lovely vintage atmosphere. Please note that the walk is uneven and quite steep in places.

I was expecting it to be a bit more exciting but it's better than nothing after struggling up the hill. Check ahead because opening days are patchy outside of school holidays.

We stopped into the lighthouse during our tour of Dover and couldn't have been happier with the scones and hot tea we got from Mrs. Knott's. A nice break before our walk back.
