We reveal the winner of the Independent Café/Tea Room of the Year award

Tea and coffee shops are an integral part of the Kent food and drink scene. Who makes the best tea and coffees, serves the nicest cakes and biscuits and the freshest scones? Are the sandwiches freshly cut and liberally filled? Most importantly, are most of the ingredients locally sourced?

Sponsored by La De Da Boutique

Highly commended...

Daily Bread, Rusthall

Beyond The Grounds, Tonbridge

And the winner is...

The Bow Window Coffee Shop and Café, Lenham
