Husband and wife team open new Cheltenham tearoom

A former Indian Restaurant in Winchcombe Street in Cheltenham has been transformed into a tea room by an entrepreneurial young couple.

The Once Upon a Time tearoom is on the site of the former Dine India restaurant in a Grade II listed mid-terrace property that dates back to the mid-19th century.

The inspiration of Sophie Lannen and husband Richard, the couple have led a complete refurbishment of the premises.

On entering there is a small serving area which then opens out into an open-plan space complete with laminate flooring, decorative architrave and feature fireplaces.

A baker extraordinaire, Mrs Lannen worked for Enchanted Tea Rooms for more than five years before embarking on the new venture.

They will offer tasty treats, afternoon treats and high tea every Friday, Saturday and Sunday. They will also be offering event catering.
