HOME FRONT TEA ROOM, RAMSGATE

Afternoon tea doughnuts with jam

A wonderful idea – a tea room that harks back to the ‘camaraderie of the 1940s’, serving spam and corned beef sandwiches, jacket potatoes and items on toast – pilchards being their bestseller.

They also serve scones, crumpets, teacakes, 17 different teas, various coffees, including Camp, Ovaltine and Bovril.
