The Independent Pedaler

Canterbury, Kent

T.I.P is a simple concept born of  passion and commitment to maintain an independent life. They see the world through a prism, one in which each moment is cherished and shared with those we love and every event is a celebration of what is possible.


After many years of cycling, running and racing the mountains and roads of the world, The Independent Pedaler has found a home at Highland Court Farm. As with any happy home, the doors are open, food and drink awaits with a ready smile and an open hand. 


They are an independent coffee house, bar and kitchen…come join in the #theindependentlife.



Let’s start with coffee…there is no magic formula here. They  work with one of the London’s oldest coffee merchants to ensure that they obtain only the finest espresso blend and single origin 100% Arabica, including coffees certified under Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance, Organic schemes and specially selected coffees from identifiable farms. These green beans are then roasted on site at T.I.P. in small batches before grinding to order, extracted through their Rocket R9 espresso machine and served in handmade stoneware.


They have the same focus on the ingredients that go to form the menu as they do their coffee. The menu will change with the seasons and they are always looking to inject a little bit of ‘interesting’…especially if it challenges convention. 

Suppliers are local where they can find the quality they demand and they trawl the UK to identify ingredients that will complement their range. All the cakes are made in-house by their team who are passionate and experienced bakers.
