Tempting Tearooms

26th July 2021

Shelly's Tearoom, Chilham

Afternoon Tea

If afternoon tea is your guilty pleasure then you're never far away from a tempting treat. Numerous tearooms and cafes abound throughout the borough offering a welcome break from a busy day, whatever time of the year.  Traditional cream teas and homemade cakes jostle for attention alongside other delicacies, what to choose is part of the fun.

Discover one of our many villages; Chilham, Charing and Biddenden are great spots. And Tenterden is bursting at the seams with independent eateries, making memories has never tasted so good!


The Little Teapot, situated in the heart of Ashford town centre.  Offering delicious homemade treats and family favourites including High Tea, you can even add a glass of Prosecco to make it extra special!

Set in the picturesque village of Chilham, Shelly's Tearoom offers a beautiful setting for you to enjoy some indulgence.  Afternoon tea, freshly baked cakes, warming soup.  There's just so much choice!

Situated in the High Street, this 18th Century building first opened its doors as Peggotty’s Tea Shoppe in 1975. A traditional tearoom experience, serving homemade food, freshly ground coffee and loose leaf teas.
