Teashop & Tel

Based on a building in Banbury, Oxfordshire, our popular Tea Shop was originally a Tudor Coaching Inn, built around 1567 and was more recently a Barclays Bank.  These hostelries were essential stopping points in the days of horse drawn coach travel, and can still be seen in many High Streets.

We present it as an English Tearoom, serving cream teas, and with two delicately painted hanging baskets over the gateway which would once have led to the stables.  Outside is an old red phone box, sadly disappearing from our streets, as mobile phone ownership is now almost universal.

The Tea Shop stands 18.7cm (7 & 1/2″) tall to the top of chimney x 12cm (4 & 3/4″) wide.
