As soon as I started to eat them I did comment to my friend that they were heated in an unusual way - cold in the middle and heated outside but thought nothing more of it and ate anyway. I am not local and she...More

We were lured into Tiny Tim's solely based on how adorable and quaint it looked on the outside. Right away when you enter you are tended to and given a menu. To prevent their guests from being inconvenienced by people waiting in line, they allow...More

We have now served over 750,000 customers in our eight years of business! That's over three quarters of a million! The reviews below represent far less than 1% of our visitors. We hope to see you soon so you may decide for yourself! Quintessential English tearoom set in an historic 400 year old haunted building beautifully decorated with 1930's inspired settings and chandeliers. A quiet luxurious oasis in the heart of bustling Canterbury. We do not take bookings, so just turn up and we will accommodate you. Please be aware that last admission is usually 15-20 minutes before closing.
