Hello and welcome to The Tea House, situated in the historic catheral quarter of the beautiful city of Norwich.
We are in the middle of the cobbled street of Elm Hill tucked away in Wrights court that gives us a nice peaceful feel with some privacy and seclusion away from all the hustle bustle of Norwich city.
Hence our slogan "Peace & Quiet in the city" something you won`t get anyway else!
Elm Hill itself dates back to Tudor times of the late 15th century and the cobbled street is the orignal stones from those times.
The Tea House is a grade 2 listed building and as such must have its own ghost! Sometimes the floorboards creek and the doors slam and I`m sure some cake goes walkabout, but to date haven`t seen anything. Honest!
The Tea House is owned and run by Nicola who makes all the cakes, soups & sandwiches with a little help from her loyal followers.
Nicola moved to Norfolk 3 years ago with no thought of working in a cafe let alone running one! Just living in one of the best places in the world was enough or so she thought. Then one rainy afternoon when sitting having a cream tea in a north Norfolk cafe she said those immortal words " i would love to run a cafe like this" ! So after looking at a few bacon & burger cafes, and not really ever thinking her dream would become reality, the Tea House came up for sale!
Yippe now the hard works starts, we closed for two weeks to re-decorate and re-fresh, buys some new signs and paint a few chairs, and we have come up with the quaint new tea house. And guess what? the hard work hasnt stopped.
I t truly is a cafe in norwich city that is so peaceful, you could believe you were anywhere but so near to everywhere. What better place to have something to eat & drink while reading a book or catching up with emails using our free Wi-Fi or just pop in for a chat with some friends and of course with Nicola who is always willing to have a good old natter!
So whether its a lunchtime snack, a quick coffee, a business meeting or an extra special treat all are welcome to a proper Tea House just like the old days but with a modern twist.
The Tea House Norwich is a dream come true for Nicola, not just a vocation, job or business its a Life and what could be better that tea & cake?
I hope you visit soon and enjoy the tea house as much as I do.
