If not you really must, it is located in one of the most unspoilt and unique 15th century chocolate box village squares in the world, nestled in an area of outstanding natural beauty and only 5 miles from Canterbury, it is no wonder that so many television productions from Agatha Christie’s Poiret and Miss Marple to the BBC’s Jane Austin as well as Top Gear pictured above were filmed here.

Baby Shower, Hen Party, Retirement Party,

Have you visited our St Margaret’s Bay Tea Rooms yet?


If not you really must, it is located in one of the most beautiful bays in England, once home to Noel Coward as well as Ian Fleming of James Bond fame, in fact, rumour has it that 007 was named after the local bus that ran between St Margaret’s Bay and nearby Martins Mill. We are a mere 15-minute stroll to the south foreland lighthouse or a 10-minute stroll down to the bay via a winding path through the pine trees, where on a clear day France is clearly visible. Only 5 minutes from Dover.
