Bessie's Tea Parlour

About Us

Welcome to Bessie’s Tea Parlour, our little touch of nostalgia in the beautiful seaside town of Broadstairs. We are so pleased you have found us! Do pop by for some delicious tea in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. It’s a great place to catch up with friends for a natter or perhaps celebrate a special occasion with all the loveliness of an afternoon tea served on pretty vintage china. If you would like to learn or share a new skill or perhaps find that little vintage something for your home that you didn’t know you needed this could just be the place for you! Whatever your reason for coming to see us, we will do our very best to make each visit memorable with a little touch of nostalgia.
Our homemade food and drinks contain local ingredients where possible, with some foraged throughout the seasons from our own smallholding near Wingham. Freshly made sandwiches, savouries and a selection cakes are served throughout the day with with teas blended in Kent, fresh ground coffees, delicious hot chocolate or chilled soft and alcoholic drinks at the ready.

At the Tea Parlour we host a range of community happenings and offer private tea parties for both adults and children – champagne teas, baby showers, hen parties, vintage tea and photo shoots, children’s birthdays, Throughout the year, bookings are also taken for a number of fabulous events such as foraging forays, tea tasting or a spot of baking and making.
