Popped in for some lunch on the way back from a vineyard visit. I was starving and ordered the quiche, and was already planning which cake I'd have to follow. The quiche of the day was roasted red pepper and goats cheese... Absolutely delicious, honestly couldn't fault it, and with a beautifully... read more

Expected more from this tea room. Tea came long before food, so had finished drinking it by the time food arrived Sandwiches most were good but one was a bit dry round the edges . Nice scones but dry cakes. Service average.

We went here on a drive through Kent and were not disappointed. My top tip is to order the cream tea for two and to try and find a spot in the garden.

What a lovely, traditional tea shop in a great setting. Sat outside in a garden which was so peaceful and quiet; really authentic. Afternoon tea for two was served on a tiered stand and was very home made. The scones were so light and delicious - see the photos. The owner came out to introduce herself and this demonstration of... More

I have been to Peggotty's twice now and will be back again soon. Both times we have had the afternoon tea and it has been freshly made and everything is homemade as well. Sandwiches are lovely and the scones are to die for. Friendly service and quirky decor. Love this tiny tea room, give it a try.

Stumbled across the Peggorty Tea Shop in the cutest town of Tenterden and highly recommend it. Lovely owner with super friendly staff. Serving all the yummy delights you'd expect from a traditional tea shop and she makes a mean jacket spud with egg mayo all served with salad which is great for the price.

What a lovely old fashioned tea shoppe, décor and table settings do it justice, just a pity that the staff felt more at home in the kitchen than in the front of the house! It wasn't very busy when we arrived but although there were at least four people in and out of the room, we seemed to have been... More

We enjoyed the special of home-made carrot and coriander soup, served with a cheese scone. The hot drinks, loose-leaf tea and filter coffee with free refills, were good value. Service was friendly, efficient and polite, just right for this olde tea shoppe. Space is very tight, particularly, the two tables in the bay windows, which also suffer from direct sun... More
