Where are we at?

Well 12 months ago when we signed the lease on 51 Court Street Plymouth we really did not anticipate we would still be in the UK unable to open, even after the initial outbreak of covid we remained cautiously optimistic that we could open late quarter 3 early quarter 4 2020, however it wasn't to be.

With everything delayed from permits to contractors to us being unable to get across the pond a 12 week project has taken almost 12 months made even more difficult by managing the project remotely from 3280 miles away .

That said when you witness the suffering of many across the globe we have paid a very small price really!

So where are we at now? well we have the final fit for the plumber and electrician and then the contractors will be finished, we are assured this will be by the end of January, everything our end is then ready to move, we are simply awaiting the US Embassy in London to issue our visas which is again taking a lot longer than would ordinarily be the case!

So then the all important question, when will you open? well our thought process is that we anticipate the embassy appointment being in March, however you may have heard on the news that the whole of the UK has been placed into another national strict lock-down for at least 6 weeks, as to whether this will delay further the embassy is unknown as it is impossible to get an answer from them in the circumstances.

Of course this may well be sooner as we have been in queue now for some three months already, once issued we have things fine tuned (one of the advantages of having so long to prepare) to 16 days from visa issued to fly out.

I don’t mean to be mean, but the plural of artery is arteries. This post uses the singular possessive form instead of the plural of the noun. I love language as much as I love my arteries. Just saying....

Sorry about the delay but look forward to your opening in Plymouth. Loved our trips to London and afternoon tea. Scones with clotted cream and jam, my favorite.

Be still my beating heart!

On a related note, is it Shelly’s Tearoom?

Yum!! ๐Ÿ˜

Looking forward to the opening.

Looking forward for a nice scone and a cup of tea. Best of British luck to you,

Where and when??

We can’t wait!!!

Where will you be located in Plymouth?

Oooh... Scones. Haven't had a proper scone since the last time I was in London a year ago. Looking forward to your opening. โค๏ธ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง

Well you certainly know your cake! it is indeed a Battenburg Cake, the origins of this beautiful cake are disputed, some say it was created to celebrate the marriage of Princess Victoria to Prince Louis of Battenberg in 1884. Others claim it was invented in the Prussian village of Battenberg. Yet another group argues it is simply an English cake, named Church Window, which had been around for years before being rechristened.
But wherever it originated, one thing is for certain you will love it whether it is served with your Afternoon Tea or simply by the slice!
