Great place to eat at.

Gary & Lynn are the hosts you could hope for the food is great even when they are busy top marks for a top couple.

Called in for lunch. Excellent lunch followed by cake which was also good. Good atmosphere and friendly staff. Will use this place more often for coffee and lunches when in Tenterden D&S 9/6

I haven't been here for a while but I used to go weekly when I worked in Tenterden. Barry and Lynn are lovely people, always a smile to welcome you and they have become good friends of mine.

As a regular customer I would like to say that the standards of Indulgence never drop. On Wednesday this week I was there at a time when they were very busy. In fact I don't think there was a seat not taken, including the outside tables. There were only Lynn and one other member of staff on duty. I took... More

It is always lovely to get a review and especially when it is so complimentary and we value them equally whether it is from a first time customer or a valued regular customer. Lynn will be so happy to know that in your eyes her efforts to keep standards as high as possible are not wasted. So thank you for... More

Well, I have to say, we have heard the saying "A Hidden Gem" a few times before in relation to Indulgence but it is always nice to hear it again. Hidden we are, but it seems that you found it well worth finding us. Our cakes are all home made, i.e. on the premises and one can definitely taste the... More

Really nice place tucked away by steam railway. Lots of tables, papers to read and historical books on the town which was good. Food was lovely. Fella had rarebit and bacon and a cheese scone (obviously home made) and loved it. I had cream cheese and smoked salmon butty. The bread is doorstop and the filling was generous. Really good....

Well well! "A Smashing Sandwich". Thank you so much. They are smashing and filling and would keep most of us going for many an hour, especially with that lovely thick soft bread that we get from a local bakery. Welsh Rarebit, Cheese Scone and one of the Old Dairy Brewery's ales. Time for a lie down methinks after that. We... More

I've lived in Tenterden for 25 years and have eaten, or stopped for a coffee with friends, in most of the cafes and restaurants in the town at some point. The atmosphere and service in Indulgence has always been warm and welcoming, and the food always freshly prepared and cooked, and it is always delicious. Lynn's scones are legendary and... More

Hi Jean Well, praise indeed. At this rate Lynn may have trouble getting her head through the door, but I agree with you wholeheartedly and her accolades are well deserved. I am glad you like the atmosphere as we always try to make it relaxed and friendly. I love the way that you describe Indulgence and it is lovely that... More

We came to Tenterden for the may fair and found this little tea shop. We ordered the cream teas and was surprised to find we had a choice of scones and not just limited to plain ones. This also included savoury ones as well if you wished. They were a lovely size and served with plenty of jam and cream.... More

Well, we are so glad that you found us and happy that you enjoyed the scones. We have 9 varieties of scone on a rotation basis and we look forward to welcoming you back to try a few more. It is surprisingly peaceful in the courtyard and a great sun trap, when the sun decides to come out. Kind Regards... More

On our way to prospect few locations for a future move - we stopped at Indulgence and loved the food, the staff, the atmosphere, the little terrace - a perfect retreat for a busy morning. But we'll definitely come again on a Sunday morning to spend more time and hopefully if we manage to move around the area we'll become... More

We`ve been to Indulgence quite a few times for a home-cooked breakfast, which are absolutely wonderful! I don`t eat meat myself, but there is a vegetarian option which is lovely. The coffee they serve is one of the best coffee`s we`ve tasted. We`ve also had lunch and afternoon tea which are worth every penny. The girls who work there are... More

Thank you so much for your kind and thoughtful review and I apologise for not replying earlier.
