Escape to the park...

You’ll find us sipping tea on a leafy patch in the Rickman Hill Park in Coulsdon. We offer a warm welcome, brimming with love and delicious delights for every palette. We are fortunate to have oodles of outside space to enjoy at safe socially distanced tables and easy ordering. We also have our cake-away hatch for you to grab our delights to go!

It’s all about family

Come enjoy a stroll in the Park, a warm welcome awaits you and your family (four legged ones as well) at Dottys Tea Garden with a range of freshly prepared food and drinks.

Decadent Afternoon Teas

Relax and unwind with us. Enjoy breakfast, tasty lunches, home-made cakes to die for and afternoon teas galore, all in the beautiful surroundings of the Tea Garden.

Lovingly made

We don’t believe in half measures at Dotty’s and take every step to provide our lovely customers the best loose leaf tea available, sourced from local suppliers. Our cakes are second to none and we believe everyone deserves a slice of happiness – gluten and vegan friendly options mean no one misses out. Ask for more information.

Start your day the Dotty way!

All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast, kicked off with our Buttermilk pancake stack with streaky bacon and maple syrup…don’t worry if you are in a rush, we have real coffee to wake the dead and even loose leaf tea to go. Let’s do it this, even if it is a Monday morning!

We are back open and can’t wait to see you!

We are so excited to welcome you back to Dotty’s! In line with restrictions we are open for outside dining in our covered veranda and patio area, 7 days a week from 9am.

We also welcome you to pre-order your Afternoon Teas, home made cakes and picnic boxes via our online bakery for collection 7 days a week between 10am – 12pm at the hatch. Why not bring a blanket and set up camp near by in the park and enjoy your Dotty treats on site? We’d be happy to serve you additional drinks and ice creams from our beautiful Dotty’s hatch, chock full of delights to tempt you!

We will be operating a first come first serve basis for tables and obviously maximum tables of 6 people in line with government guidelines.

We can’t wait to see you all and are so grateful for your continued support.

All our love and sprinkles, The Dotty Team x


Welcome to Dotty’s Tea Garden!

Nestled by a small woodland known as Mother Kitty’s Shaw. Originally a cricket pavilion, this once neglected building has now been transformed into a wonderful tearoom serving loose leaf teas, small batch coffee, artisan ice-cream and home made delights.

Our seasonal breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea menu is ever evolving so whether it’s a trip with the kids, a catch up, or some much needed ‘you’ time we pretty much have everything covered!

We look forward to seeing you soon x
