The Sondes Tea House & General Stores

A quirky and out-of-town Tea House and tea garden (seasonal) with over 160 different teas, light lunches, vegan and healthy options as well as a village shop and an emporium of wonders!

An experience which started as a project to save an old pub from the developers! A totally new venture for the owners and a great addition to Selling. Rather than be lost to housing the village pub has been reinvented into an attraction and amenity which provides choice, local produce an a venue to spice up community life. Offering everything from your local village shop, a tea & coffee house with plenty of different teas, light lunches, cream teas, healthy options, vegan and gluten free options and a general hub of activity for the villagers and passers by alike! 

The Tea House is also dog friendly and has become very popular since opening with lunch available and varied upon the sound of a gong at around 12 until 2pm and afternoon options available until close. 

Just a short walk from Selling railway station situated between Faversham to Canterbury East on the London Victoria to Dover Priory railway line, Network South East.
