Afternoon Tea. We’ve been doing it as a nation since the 1800’s, but this new tea room in Hucknall is reversing the modern standard of tea rooms nowadays and lets you enjoy homemade cakes, scones and sandwiches served with loose leaf tea and coffee in a museum-like environment.
As soon as you walk through the door the 1940’s decorated eatery captures you and takes you back in time. The slow jazz and swing music keeps the theme and added ‘props’ like wartime magazines are dotted around to really make you feel like you’ve travelled in time.
The tea room is located at 7a, High Street NG15 7HJ just off the busier main road.
After having experience working at a tearoom in Beeston, which recently closed, Karen decided to open her own store. With a passion for everything vintage and an admiration of the wartime era from music to fashion, Mrs C’s Vintage Tea Room was born.
Karen and her colleagues looked wonderful. Dressed head to toe in 1940’s inspired fashion, it was as if they just stepped out of an old Hollywood movie with Marylin Monroe or Elizabeth Taylor.
Every day, they freshly prepare deliciously baked cakes which are sat on the front counter waiting to be served alongside scones, brownies, fruit loaf and colourful vintage teapots ready to fill up customers mugs.
Mrs C’s Vintage Tea Room is the perfect place for a relaxing lunch and to celebrate special occasions like mother’s day, fathers day or a birthday. They offer an extensive menu including gluten-free options. Opening times are Monday to Saturday 10am until 4pm.
There is space for 19 customers but booking is highly advised as spaces on weekends and evenings are not always guaranteed.
“It’s more like your grandma’s parlour. You can come in and relax, people are coming in on their own because they feel so comfortable. We have been busy, even when it snowed people were coming in.”
If you’re anything like me when it comes to shabby-chic furniture and old music, you’ll adore this unique and friendly tearoom.
