About Water Mill Tea Rooms and Restaurant Ringstead

Welcome to our new website for The Watermill Tea Room and Restaurant.

We thought we would share a little bit about us.

We are a family run business with. Alper (dad), Debbie (mum), Georgia (oldest daughter) and Tiella (youngest daughter).


We have been in the catering trade for over 20 years and before that both Alper and Debbie waited tables in restaurants to help with finances.


At present Debbie also has a fish and chip shop in Rushden.


We are a charming tearoom located in the heart of Kettering, Northamptonshire.

We are housed in a beautifully restored watermill, which dates back to the 11th century.

Our tearoom is the perfect place to relax in a peaceful setting and enjoy a delicious meal, snack or cream tea overlooking the beautiful river nene.

We offer a wide variety of homemade food and drinks, including sandwiches, cakes, pastries, and coffee.


Our tearoom is a popular spot for locals and tourists alike.

We are open six days a week and are also available for private functions, such as birthday parties and corporate events.

We hope you will come visit us soon!
