The Croft Tea Room St Mary Cray
Croft Tearoom is a Community Interest Company (CIC) consisting of a community based Tearoom, local food and artisans gift shop, outside catering service and community notice board for local information, events and heritage. As a CIC we operate as a commercial company but with social aims, re-investing all our profits into developing the business and/or projects of benefit to our community.

The Tearoom was established in 2009 by Carole Wells of Circa Ltd. The original building, which was derelict, was demolished and in its place a new, architecturally designed, ECO building was built using local builders & recycled materials to mirror the style of the 18th century buildings opposite. This created a lovely new building as well as a new business, which now brings income and people back to what was once a thriving high street.

Miss Mollett's High Class Tea Room
Jessie Blanche Mollett was born in Richmond, Surrey on 13th November, 1881. She eventually moved to Rye where she opened an antique shop

She later moved to Appledore in the 1920s to the property now known as Old Way Cottage where she lived until her death on 28th February, 1970 at the age of 88. During her time in the village she bought several properties and opened the tea room and guest house pictured. This thrived until the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939 when she gave up the business. She is buried in Appledore Churchyard nearby.
