Tea at the Oast

A tea room and restaurant set within an original Kentish Oast House  – a great alternative for a local eatery.


Originally built in 1897 to accommodate the local Kentish hops, it is a common building of its era and one that truly best represents Kent. Sadly there are fewer Oasts which are still accessible to the public these days which makes this one truly special. In the early 1960’s, this exquisite Oast building was tastefully converted into a lovely family home and in which it has remained to this day. 
Tea at the Oast is a unique place to dine as it is actually set within the owners family home. On a near daily basis, the owners open up their kitchen for all the cooking and magic to take place before serving up their culinary delights to guests in their very own dining room. It may be a small yet retro venue but it certainly provides that personal service!
 
Opened in May 2009 modestly serving cream teas on the weekends, the owners have gradually built up the business, have extended the opening hours and offer a wider range of food including breakfasts, lunches, afternoon teas and the ever so popular ‘Roast at the Oast’ as an example of their dinners. For a truly unique and quirky experience, Tea at the Oast is one not to be missed.
