Tea Rooms

Open Saturday - Sunday, 1030-1600 until the end of April, excluding Easter. Based in the old brickmakers dock in Lower Halstow, Kent, the Edith May Tea Room is how the barge now spends her winter months. First opened in November 2009 to allow the local villagers to see the barge in the final stages of her restoration, the homemade cakes proved a delicious success and the Tea Room grew in popularity, becoming established in its own right.
