We have visited the tea rooms many times in the summer but the Sunday roast ( book to save disappointment) was delicious. We love the relaxed and friendly atmosphere and a home from home feel to the dining experience.

Nice pot of tea (+ pot of hot water), good cake, dog friendly (+ free dog treats!), friendly staff and a local WW2 museum attached. Simple, tasteful decor, what a tea shop should be. Short lunch menu looked good (we were there for 11s's).

We were walking by this cafe and called in, we're so glad we did. Excellent cake, delicious soup, good tea and friendly helpful staff - just what you want in a cafe. The museum is worth a look too.

On our way to walk the white cliffs to the lighthouse, drove to St Margaret's Bay and found this unassuming little cafe. The staff were so helpful, checking on ingredients for my friend's gluten free needs and what a fresh and tasty turkey salad they...More
