Rosie's Tea and Coffee Room
Deidre and Andrew moved to Hayfield after identifying a gap in the market. In 2009 they set up of a new business to provide the local community and visitors to the village of Hayfield with a new cafe to relax in.
The cafe specialises in serving a variety of specialist teas and coffees, homemade soups, sandwiches and cakes. The grant contributed towards the shop refurbishment and purchase of coffee shop equipment.
The refurbishment included new flooring, bespoke serving counter, new kitchen and specialist espresso machine. The tea room has developed and worked with other local business to expand the local supply chain in the area.
The project is, so far, very successful and is exceeding expectations in terms of sales turnover. Staffing levels also continue to increase. The BBC drama The Village used the frontage of the building as part of their successful series.
The next stage in development for the business is to develop the specialist coffee service.
