Uncertainty and economic hardship have struck the hearts of our local businesses over the last 12 months, but many are getting ready to bounce back, including local Aldridge deli, Wilsons Tea Room.
Known for its popular breakfasts, fresh afternoon teas and large variety of homemade hot and cold food and beverages, Wilsons Tea Room has served the people of Aldridge since 2018, but has faced a tough year due to coronavirus restrictions.
Collection Services Restart at Aldridge Tea Room
After closing, opening and then shutting its doors again in the last 12 months, there’s finally light at the end of the tunnel for the small, hard-working team who have recently put all of their efforts into a collection service.
“At the start of the pandemic we were closed for 10 weeks, which was really hard,” owner Deborah Wilson told Pioneer Magazines.
“We were able to provide socially-distanced meals and seating for a couple of months in between lockdowns, but we had to revert back to collection-only shortly after. After the spike in cases in January, we made the decision to close again for seven weeks and we’ve only just re-opened for collection at the beginning of March.”
Wilsons Tea Room Gets Ready to Re-Open
Staff at Wilsons Tea Room are now firmly focused on looking forward ahead to the planned re-opening in May allowing customers to eat in once again.
Business has also slowly started to pick back up thanks to the selection of sumptuous treats that are currently available to take away.
Deborah’s team ‒ Lisa, Dawn, Laura and her son Elliot ‒ were rushed off their feet in the lead up to Mother’s Day due to demand for their plentiful platters. With the Easter Bank Holiday coming in April, the team are it again, offering an enticing Easter treat that can be ordered by phone and picked up from the Tea Room on Lazy Hill Road.
