Miss Mollett’s High Class Tea Room is situated in The Street, Appledore. The current site used to be the Appledore butcher’s shop. The original owner, Miss Jessica Mollett, first opened her tea room in Old Way Cottage, also in the Street and was a well-known figure in the village and in Rye – where she lived for some time before moving to Appledore.
Jessica Mollett lived in Old Way Cottage until her death on 28th February, 1970 at the age of 88. During her time in the village she bought several properties and opened the tea room and guest house. The tea room thrived until the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939 when she gave up the business.
She is buried in Appledore Churchyard nearby.
