Yes, it’s that time of the year when the master (or mistress) scone bakers heat up their ovens and the jam makers polish their preserving pans.
Starting on Sunday 26 May, 2 to 5pm, it’s Cream Tea Time in St Nicholas’ Churchyard, Pluckley.
We’re there every Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday afternoon with homemade scones and jam, homemade coffee and chocolate cakes, freshly brewed pots of tea courtesy of the Pluckley Tea Company at Pivington, and delicious filteres coffee. There’s also squash or milk on the menu and, of course, a bowl of water for your well-behaved dog.
And, if you’re on your way and the sun goes behind a cloud or the wind comes up, we’re still open for business: instead of enjoying the views across the Andredsweald (the ancient Saxon forest and Weald of Kent) we keep a few tables inside the church where it’s more cosy.
