THE DOORS of the Boston Tea Party café-bar have been thrown open in Stratford.
The family-run independent café group has taken over the converted school house in Henley Street a stone’s throw from Shakespeare’s birthplace.
The 120-seat family-friendly café-bar – with an outdoor seating area for a further 50 customers – will be serving up a range of ethically sourced food and drink, including its award-winning brunch and breakfast, homemade cakes and seasonally changing main meals alongside specialty coffees and loose leaf teas.
Sam Roberts, managing director of Boston Tea Party, said: “We are delighted to open a venue in Stratford, which we have been keen to move to for some time. It’s particularly special for me as I attended a local school, The Croft in Alveston, and have very fond memories of the town, so it’s great to be back.
“We found the perfect location for a café-bar at St Gregory’s Hall, which is an incredible building with original features, as well as being in a great location right across the road from the birthplace of Shakespeare.
The independent chain has successful venues in locations including Birmingham, Worcester, and Cheltenham.
The new Stratford café-bar has created 35 jobs.
