81A High St, Rochester, ME1 1LX Telephone: 01634 847941 Open Facebook Page Rochester is a town and former city in Kent, England. It is located within the unitary authority of Medway and is at the lowest bridging point of the River Medway about 30 miles from London. The town is known for its cathedral and castle, easily accessible from the High Street.
I visit Peggotty's Parlour on for lunch, whenever I pop into the lovely Rochester.
This is a lovely tea room with old round wooden tables and chairs sat on clean carpet tiles and white cups and saucers were already laid out on the table ready for guests. There was also a selection of pictures on the walls which were available for purchase if a picture took your eye. Flower pots on the window sills made this little tea room warm and inviting. The only annoying part of my visit, was that two light bulbs were blown from the ceiling lights which needed to be replaced.
To access the tea room you have to go upstairs, so some disabled or elderly people need to be aware that there are stairs and steps leading up to the tea room above Johnstones Tool Merchants.
I sat on a small round table next to the window and the view to the Cathedral was lovely with the sun beaming out of the sky on a bitterly cold day.
I had a pot of tea and a home made fish pie, baked beans and a salad; and it was absolutely lovely and tasted fresh.
There is a nice selection of food on the menu including a selection of speciality teas, and a selection of different cream teas. A special board of home-made food including; soup, ham/mushroom quiche and fish pie etc were available as well as a selection of cakes and desserts.
This is a lovely tea room which I can recommend. It is nowadays a little tired, and could do with a little refreshing, here and there.
