The Cosy Tea Rooms of Elham

We are an independent tea room in the heart of Elham, a traditional Kentish Village in the Garden of England. We use fresh, hand-roasted coffee beans by Union Hand-Roasted Coffee. All staff are barista trained. Union Coffee is direct trade with farmers.

Please visit the Union Hand-Roasted Coffee website for more information about our wonderful coffee.


We are situated in the centre of Elham and are surrounded by Elham Valley which is an area of outstanding natural beauty. It is 8 miles from Hythe, 11 miles from Canterbury, 17 miles from Ashford and 19 miles from Folkestone.

Wheelchair and push-chair friendly. There are no steps to enter the building.
