About Us

About Us

We established our rare breed Farm in Sussex in 2004, a working farm specialising in breeding pedigree rare breed animals. We also grew herbs for florists and vegetables for our fruit and veg box scheme in our walled garden. We moved to Kent in 2007 and in 2011 launched Chunkypumpkin to deliver our own unique products and fresh Kent produce nationwide


We moved to Kennington in 2012 into the 19th century building which is known locally as Knotts off licence. We spent 4 years renovating the building to create a beautiful Tearoom & Shop


We are a family business and proud of our delightful team. Our amazing staff have made it possible for us to adapt and grow from our tentative beginnings. We have created a wonderful new space for our customers to come and choose food to takeaway or eat in and we have a new courtyard at the front of the tearoom to eat outside when the weather allows

Our Shop & Takeaway

Our shop is filled with fresh delicious food to takeaway, beautiful new products from Sass & Belle, EcoLiving, Loveramics, Brewed by Hand, Gelata, Lick the Spoon, Marimba World, Acqua Amore, Minor Figures and KeepCup.


We are now serving takeaway hot drinks and food, in warmer weather our customers can sit outside in our pretty courtyard. We have a scattering of tables in our shop and our tearoom is now open for you to eat. We are not serving our Traditional Afternoon Teas.


We have put in place strict safety measures following Government guidelines to ensure every process, at every stage, from making your

food in our kitchen at Williams & Thomas in Kent to packing your food, keeps our team and our customers safe. We source everything from companies who we know follow the same guidelines. Thank you
