Tea and cupcakes; these two words are enough to grab my attention. Add to the mix right on my doorstep and quirky tearoom and I’m sold… Say hello to Dotty’s Tearoom of Carshalton.
I was invited to the launch of Dotty’s Tearoom on Thursday evening and was excited to see it’s offering to our village high street. Situated at 108 High Street, the traditional tea rooms are the first on Carshalton High Street for more than 100 years. With it’s divine victoria sponge and irresistible mini scones I sampled a selection of delights set to be on offer from Dotty’s Tearoom.
Whilst enjoying fizz with the lovely Kathy from Local Mums Online I caught up with Rebecca, the founder who found success in Kingston last year with her pop up tea room and decided Carshalton was the place to call her own and create a collaborative space is not only a fantastic space for local people but a great way for local small creative businesses to showcase their talents and amazing products.
Being a lover of Earl Grey it’s great to finally have a tearoom on my doorstep – literally – that has everything I need to enjoy a lovely cuppa and crack on with work during school hours and treat Boo to a sophisticated tea once the school bell rings.
With a soft launch from next week, and fully open from the beginning of June – Dotty’s Tearoom is set to be the collaborative and creative space that our lovely little village has so desperately needed… Bravo Dotty’s Tearoom!
