The tearoom is designed for families and holds regular parties.

It is at the site of the former Old Five Bells pub and is run by Kirsty Skipper, 35, and her team of 18 staff, including her mum, Julie.

"It was always my dream to open a tea room and when the pub became available, I was thrilled to take it over the space," said Kirsty.
