Betty’s Tea Rooms at The Cedars

Residents and guests at The Cedars Care Home in Bourne enjoyed an elegant afternoon of tea tasting and cakes to celebrate National Tea Day. Based on the incredible Betty’s Tearooms in Harrogate, the pop up café included sampling a selection of different teas, including floral and fruity, loose leaf, traditional and bubble teas; accompanied by wonderful fresh baked scone with jam, cream and strawberries and a selection of tea flavoured loaf cakes handmade by the hospitality team.

There was much laughter and many compliments on the day. Visitors and residents loved the vintage tea room, and the traditional serving outfits worn by the team. The room was decorated with a variety of floral arrangements in the conservatory to create a Victorian orangery vibe and a selection of vintage crockery with background music from Glen Miller completed the ambiance.

Senior General Manager, Rebecca Aldred said, “Our residents and guests had a wonderful afternoon at our pop-up Betty’s of Bourne. We all love a cuppa, and the vintage environment made it extra special. We do our best to provide a wide range of activities and entertainment at The Cedars as part of the lifestyle enrichment programme for residents.”

Resident Lydia said “I really enjoyed the tea rooms, it was a lovely afternoon,” whilst Daphne was very happy to try the bubble tea, saying ‘I like lots of different flavoured teas, but I’ve never tried that!”
