Kettle & Cake the tearoom

Thanks to the success of Betty, we are delighted that we have realised our dream and opened our own tearoom. In January 2017, we heard that Browns Hair Lounge In Hedge End was relocating and an exciting opportunity presented itself. A meeting with the landlord and a look around decided it could be the perfect place to open our much dreamed of tearoom

After mountains of paperwork, lease signing and planning applications, we received the keys at the end of April and the hard work really began! Pat who had finished work began the daunting task of transforming the old hairdressers into what you see today. A new kitchen was installed a new loo, air conditioning, heating and a front counter. Not to mention the 42 spot lights that all had to be replaced . The windows were given a make over, wooden ladders and arches added to give a more appealing look.

Next the colour scheme (with much agonising over the perfect shade) and painting of the inside and out. Pat worked tirelessly and met lots of locals who’d often come in to chat as they walked past daily all keen to see his progress.

The hunt for tables and chairs was then on, all of which were sanded and painted, with help from family and friends. The vintage china was sourced from many charity shops and village fetes and the final touches were put in place.

Kettle and Cake the tearoom opened its doors for business on Tuesday 11th July. What a year 2017 turned into!

We’d love you to join us in our family run Tearoom, taste our daily changing selection of homebaked cakes and scones, try an Afternoon Tea or just pop in for a relaxing coffee, tea or hot chocolate.
