For those of you who have seen my previous posts, you will remember my one on the Vintage Tearoom over at the Blithbury Reindeer Lodge. You can see the article here. Tomorrow, the Vintage Tearoom run by the lovely Kelly is being re-opened in it’s new location. Moving to the Hawkesyard Estate, they are now located in the old golf course building.
They are officially launching on the 4th, however we were invited today to have a look around and a taster before they open to the public. I love the girlie quirk to the tearoom that they had previously and the new venue has kept with that style magnificently.
When you enter the car park for the tearoom you will find this gorgeous sign pictured above and a designated seating area outside which will be an excellent place to relax in the summer. When you get to the door of the venue you will see the beautiful laced curtains which bring that vintage home vibes and a cute little wreath which says ‘open’ and ‘closed’. (Excuse the reflection of myself in the door xD).
When it comes to the inside of the place there are so many beautiful decorations. The tables are wooden with white chairs, a laced table runner and a decorative vase with flowers and a table number. Ours for the day also featured a reserved sign as we booked in advance for the preview. The metal work where the spot lights in the room are situated have flowers twisted around them to add a unique and vintage vibe to the modern fixtures which is really effective.
Apart from the gorgeously set out tables, you can also purchase a variety of shabby chic gifts at the counter.
On display, are an amazing range of cakes which you can order and enjoy at your table. Here you can also get a selection of food and drinks to complete your meal. The staff members are so nice and when placing your order they are flexible in accommodating for your needs and also the foods on offer cater for various dietary requirements.
For me, to begin with I had a pot of tea which I managed to get a lot of cups out of, with a crisp sandwich. Yes you read right, they do supply crisp sandwiches – how cool is that!?
My mum had a plain cheese sandwich and my dad and Mike had a cheese and pickle sandwich. All of which came with salad and tortillas, apart from mine which came with pickled onions, but as I am not a fan of them, they were able to make my serving without. My parents and Mike also had a Diet Coke with this part of the meal, followed by coffee and tea with the pudding.
Off the counter I chose a rocky road cake, which was a chocolate cake with Maltesers and marshmallows on top. You can also see in the background the brownie cake which my parents had. This was made up of two slices of sponge cake with a chunk of brownie in the middle and chocolate icing, which was then had a gold dusting. How delicious does that sound! Mike on the other hand went for a caramel apple crumble flavoured sponge cake.
We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at the new opening of the Vintage Tearoom, the venue was so cute and the food was so delicious. We all definitely came away feeling stuffed! Wishing all the best to the lovely staff and owner on their main opening day tomorrow!
