Step back in time at the 1950s-themed Mrs Knott’s Tearoom in the former lighthouse keeper’s cottage at the South Foreland Lighthouse. Named after George and Catherine Knott who were keepers here and lived on site with their 13 children, the lovely tearooms capture a quintessential Englishness.

Enjoy freshly brewed tea or coffee with a range of fresh cakes and pastries made in the nearby White Cliffs kitchen and delivered daily. Choose from delicious homecooked soups, scones and cakes and more.

Please note: the tearoom is closed from the end of October to the beginning of March. See the National Trust website for details of opening times.
