Thank you for this lovely recommendation. We always try to be friendly to our guests whether it is their first visit or one of many. I only come to Indulgence once or twice a week and when I am there I try and inject a little humour and friendly banter into everyone's conversations. Lynn on the other hand does her... More

We visited Indulgence recently, not having been to Tenterden for a while, and were delighted to see how much Indulgence has changed under new ownership. It's back to being a really pleasant place to have a drink/snack/meal. We had an excellent light lunch - very friendly and efficient service too. We shall definitely make a beeline for Indulgence whenever we're... More

We are so glad that you enjoyed your visit to Indulgence. We have had the coffee shop since November 2011 and Lynn, my wife has just improved it out of all recognition with her fabulous scones and cakes. We try and make people feel 'at home' when they come to us and it is great to hear that this is... More

Really surprised at the previous about dog accessibility, as my family and I use this café every time we visit Tenterden with our dog meg. Meg's a border collie and therefore isn't the smallest of dogs. There is a specific seating area for people with dogs, but sometimes it's full so we sit outside The staff are always friendly, even...

Thank you for your lovely message. We certainly remember Meg and thank her for bringing you to Indulgence. We always try and accommodate dogs when we can, but of course on the warmer days we often have customers sitting outside with their dogs especially as the area is a Sun Trap on the days that the Sun comes out.

Thank you for your comments; it just shows how hard it is to build up a good reputation and how easy it is to lose it.

Hidden 50 yards down a side street is Tenterden's best kept secret! Indulgence is a simple venue from the outside but once you taste the food on offer you realise what a treasure this place is. I arrived at 11.30 fancying a full English breakfast, I was warmly greeted by the young lady behind the counter who invited me to... More

Hello Well I am so glad that you enjoyed your breakfast at Indulgence. The breakfast is available every day until 3 o' clock and occasionally a little later. It is nice to have a breakfast when you want one and not just at breakfast time. When you are really hungry come and try our Indulgence Big Breakfast. Kind regards Barrington... More

Only just off the main road but you will need to look out for it. Having read the reviews on TA we actually drove a 50 mile round trip today just to check it out. We certainly weren't disappointed and it was definitely worth it. The staff were so friendly and welcoming, the service was excellent and the scones were... More

My wife and I happened on Indulgence by chance while passing a few hours in Tenterden, and were very happy we found it. (It is in a side road off the High Street near the station.). The service from (?) the owner was very friendly and the toasties and cake were excellent - tasty and filling. We had a nice... More

So glad you enjoyed your visit to Indulgence and found some people to chat to. We have many customers who now regularly come in just to 'catch up' and socialise. Most of these customers never knew each other previously and on some days we have quite a 'community spirit' going on. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Kind... More

From the outside it looks like a 'greasy spoon' and I wouldn't have gone in had I not read good reviews first. The interior is basic but comfortable and very clean. My mother had the best Welsh Rarebit she'd eaten in years and my salad was surprisingly really delicious. We bought some enormous scones to take home with us -... More

We are so glad you enjoyed your visit to Indulgence. My wife Lynn enjoys trying out the new flavours for the scones and they seem to be very popular with our customers. Later in the year maybe you can come back and try the Cranberry Scones! Kind Regards Barrington and Lynn Butler More
