Traditional English Indulgence

Listed as Grade 1, The Middle House, Mayfield is a wonderful specimen of Elizabethan architecture, with wattle and daub infill which dates back to 1575. The house was originally built for the financier, Sir Thomas Gresham, Keeper of the Privy Purse to her Majesty Queen Elizabeth 1st.

A private residence until the late 1920’s, The Middle House is now the home of an old world pub, impressive restaurant and small but cosy hotel.

All our food is homemade and prepared to order; including all our ice creams, sorbets, bread and desserts.

Faultless Afternoon Tea

What a lovely time me and my Sister had! 
I visited The Middle House with my sister for an Afternoon Tea and Processco offer booked through Groupon. From Booking to leaving everything was faultless. Service was great. They were always happy to help and asking if you wanted more tea, but at the same time not being intrusive. Sandwiches, cakes and the view were amazing, all set in a nice calming environment. The teas were delightful, consisting of tea leaves from a company in Tunbridge Wells, with a mixture of flavours Inc Apple Crumple, Reb Berry and Roiboos Caramel. all of which were amazing. As well as your common teas like Green Tea, Earl Grey and English Breakfast Tea. This was a faultless experience and one I will no doubt be returning to experience again, as well as there food menu.
