The Kitchen isn't so much a tearoom and coffee shop as a studio for the cake artists at work here. Cupcakes, chocolate dripcakes, classic Victoria sponges and their legendary lemon drizzle adorn the counter, served alongside tasty sandwiches: perhaps blue cheese, mango and rocket or free-range egg and mayo. Coffee is smooth and tea pots bottomless so you needn't worry about getting your caffeine fix, and the afternoon tea is almost universally recommended so book ahead if you've time for a longer stop.

It's a family business which shows in the cheerful, accommodating service (they even baked a special batch of scones for one customer who was sorry to miss them), which extends to community groups such as the local choir and book club.

Parking is available in the bays adjacent, in Croxley Station opposite or at the Red House pub just down the road. There's a licensed bar too, so non-drivers can sup a cheeky cocktail for the road.
