High Beeches Tea Room and Tea Garden
The closing of High Beeches Tea Room
When the family took over the Tea Room in February 2014 the lease was until 31st October 2021 (4 weeks today). A while ago I applied to the landlord for a new lease as the business has been very successful even with the pandemic closures causing disruption.
The landlord has refused our request to grant a new lease. Sadly this will mean when we close the doors at 4pm on Sunday 31st October the tea room will close permanently.
The family have been very proud to own the business for the last 7 years, we have had and have currently some fantastic staff and have enjoyed great support from our guests especially during the lockdowns with takeaway orders for afternoon teas and actually visiting the tea room. Jay our son worked alongside me when we took over and has managed the business since 2016 doing a fantastic job especially over the last 18 months and built a very strong team who work together so well. Whilst Jay is the daily face of the business there is a lot of family support in the background with Katrina my wife making the cakes and Krissie our daughter over the years has worked many weekends and carried out PA duties regularly.
Although we still have four weeks to go I would like to say a massive thank you to Jinny, Jess, Sophie, Martha, Millie, Ellyn and Lauren you have all done a fantastic job.
We hope you may have the opportunity to visit us before the final day. Thank you very much for all your support over the last 7 years.
Colin, Jay, Katrina, Krissie Shaw
