The staff couldn't have been more helpful and even suprised me by placing birthday candles and sparklers on the cake stands containing scones and sandwiches while having other customers to serve x brilliant execution and gorgeous food! Staff and tea room couldn't be more lovely!

Overlooking the Tudor castle and a short stroll from the beach this is a great place to stop for a traditional tea. The ginger cake is little short of superb. The service friendly and welcoming, and the premises spotless. it doesn't get much better than this!

What a wonderful find. A tea room overlooking Deal castle and 2mins from the sea but even more wonderful, great and delicious food, beautifully served by the lovely owner, Emma and her daughter. The room itself is light and spotlessly clean and we felt under no obligation to leave as soon as we had eaten. In fact we went back... More

Just wanted to say a big 'thank you' to everyone at the keep house tea room for helping me to get gift vouchers for a present for someone even though there was a private party on at the venue at the time. it is a lovely place serving yummy food in excellent surroundings.

I can't recommend Keep House Tea Room enough. We were made to feel really welcome by the very friendly staff who were interested in our plans and recommended places to visit. The food was delicious - I had the 'picnic' which I would definitely have again. And then there was the cake........ what can I say! They tasted even better... More

My wife and I have visited 3 times and on 2 occasions just left sitting and waiting while staff chatted with regulars. There are plenty of places doing similar things in Deal with far better service. Go find them!

Thankyou for taking the time to review our tea room. I'm truly sorry you felt you have been ignored twice on the three occasions you have been in. Service is of the highest importance to us along with the quality of our food and drinks. I must say we try to offer something a bit different to other places locally... More

We shared one cream tea with lovely cherry jam as well as strawberry jam with plenty of tea. We followed this with the Orange Drizzle cake which was so light and tasty. The young man who served...
