As with every town in the U.K. chain coffee shops are available in Tenterden but as we passed Peggotty's we decided to give it a try. The tea menu offered an excellent choice, the cakes were clearly homemade rather than mass produced and wrapped in...More

Peggotty's Tea Shop has an interesting, ever changing decor inside the shop. Perhaps a little quirky? Bright paintings and hats (!) decorate the walls. There are tables in front of the shop, and also a couple of tables in the peaceful oasis of a back garden.The tea is from the local Kent Tea Company - loose leaf only.The cakes and scones are 100% homemade. Try the tangy lemon drizzle or the nutty coffee and walnut, 2 of the favourites.Or why not just go for a plain and simple old fashioned rock cake.They will not disappoint you.If you are feeling the need to be decadent, try a scrumptious afternoon tea - consisting of sandwiches of your choice, scones jam and clotted cream, and cake of your choice to finish.The cream teas are scrumptious - how can you resist?Go on - treat yourself!
