VINTAGE TEAS EXPANDS TO BECOME LOCK29 CAFE
Lock29 once again celebrates a small business success story as Vintage Teas opens its brand-new café offer in the popular community destination. The vintage inspired tearoom, founded by Heidi Rushby, opened last weekend, exactly 12 months after opening with a much smaller offer in Lock29. The expansion of the Banbury business demonstrates the twin successes of Heidi’s business offer and the popularity of Lock29.
Vintage Teas has a beautifully curated 1950s look and is conveniently located by the entrance to Lock29 on the Castle Quay canalside. Visitors can tuck into a range of cream teas, afternoon teas, cakes, home-made sausage rolls and scones which are available to eat in or take away. In the joyfully styled seating area, customers can enjoy their tea and cakes served on vintage china. The seasonal menu will be expanding as the summer months approach, with a selection of homemade flans and new varieties of popular favourites. For those wanting to add a touch of vintage to their own home, Vintage Teas also sell matching tea sets from Bombay Duck.
Founder Heidi says: “I feel like Lock 29 is the hub of the town centre now and has so much to offer, there’s such a great atmosphere - especially at the weekends. It has really helped me to start and grow my business, so I hope that I can contribute to making it look good and bring in even more customers.”
Whilst visiting Vintage Teas, customers can explore Lock 29’s exciting range of independently owned shops and eateries, as well as an in-house bar and enjoy the wonderful canal side through the summer.
