This little corner of Carshalton is set to become a must-visit destination for lovers of quirky interiors and traditional afternoon teas. After several years on the road with her pink and cream striped caravan Vintage Dotty, Rebecca Mackenzie has set up a permanent home for all things quirky, with Dotty's Teahouse.

A carefully-chosen selection of loose-leaf teas is hand-blended in London, and coffee lovers aren't left out at Dotty's Teahouse either: the coffee is freshly roasted just down the road in Surbiton. Ice cream is also locally sourced, from St Joan's Dairy in Reigate.

The menu is full of teatime treats like crumpets, sandwiches, cookies and teacakes and everything, including the cakes, traybakes and cupcakes, is homemade by Rebecca and her team. And it's no surprise that Dotty's Teahouse serves up a fabulous cream tea and afternoon tea if it's serious indulgence you're after.

Being mum to twins Isabella and Ava, Rebecca has put a lot of thought into making children welcome, so there's a special play area for little ones. She's even made sure that Dotty's Teahouse is accessible for double buggies!

The motto for Dotty's Teahouse is 'tea, cake and creativity' and that's because it's designed to become a hub for local creative types, who can host and attend workshops and groups in the tea rooms. There's a curated selection of gifts on sale too, much of it produced by local craftspeople.

Local Food Surrey says

Rebecca's dedication to local goes far beyond food and drink - she's very community-spirited and we're sure Dotty's Teahouse will be a huge success with her at the helm.

She's always on the look-out for local businesses to work with too, so if you think your ideas might align with Dotty's give Rebecca a call!
