Simon Harrison, The Minstrel Cafe

About The Minstrel

We offer a wide range of breakfasts, hot and cold meals, sandwiches and snacks - and of course our daily specials!

If you fancy something sweet, check out our cakes, flapjacks, scones and our very popular bread pudding - all freshly made by the owner, Simon Harrison.

We have have plenty of seating upstairs, and a great outside area for when the sun makes an appearance (dogs welcome in the outside area, please ask for our doggy water bowl). There is also free parking available behind the cafe.

We also have a wide selection of coffees, speciality teas and cold drinks.


Being a child-friendly establishment, we have a basket of toys and pads and crayons to keep the little ones entertained while you relax.

We also offer a variety of platters for your business. Please get in touch with us to discuss your requirements.

Our Ethos

We use local suppliers for fresh veg and salad.


Our famous Kentish Huffkins are also sourced from a Kent-based supplier (delicious with our Speldhurst sausages and homemade Kentish ale mustard).

All our employees are local, and we enjoy being part of a close-knit local community.

Nothing brings a bigger smile to the face of a winner of one of the local raffle prizes donated by The Minstrel than enjoying a free breakfast!

We have a lovely group of regulars who are our greatest supporters, and they will always be part of the big welcome you will get used to everytime you visit us.
