Traditional cream tea and much more
The Moat Tea Rooms in Canterbury is a great place to go for afternoon tea or lunch. It is located on a side road in the historical city centre. Their website has the various menus on offer. As with most of the buildings in Canterbury the décor inside is fashioned around the wooden beams and there is a cosy historical feel to the café.

Seating Upstairs


There is seating upstairs and downstairs. The photos in this article were taken upstairs. On the menu you can chose which type of tea or coffee you like. The cafe has quite a large variety of teas on offer including Earl Grey, Ceylon, Lapsang Souchong, Darjeeling and many more. There are also freshly made plain and fruit scones to go with your drink. They are served with jam and clotted cream. You will be able to see around the café that different china sets are used, this particular one had a green floral pattern on it.

Other than traditional cream tea there are also different snacks on the menu such as sandwiches, jacket potatoes as well as cold drinks.

This giant tea pot underneath the stairs, near the kitchen, adds real character to the Moat Tea Rooms
