Madhatter’s Tearoom is set to reopen next weekend inside Alice’s Antique’s Centre, transforming it into a wonderland of retro shopping, crafts, tea and cakes.
The tea rooms closed its doors on Thursday, January 29 and has been shut for over a week to make the move.
Owner of the tearooms Nygel Stevenson said that joining forces with the antiques centre was a brilliant opportunity, but he was having to turn people away to make the move.
He is having to call out to customers through the locked front door: “I’m sorry, we’re closed!
“It’s all go here - we have a lot to do in the week if we want to open by next weekend.”
The tea rooms closed its doors on Thursday, January 29 and aims to re-open inside Alice’s on Saturday 7, alongside two floors of antiques on quaint James Street, Kimberley.
Nygel added: “It’s going to give is double the seating capacity, and we have needed grow for a while.”
With great loyalty from customers he said the location may be different but some thing never change.
“It is a new format, on a new site and with a new menu, but we are going to keep all the madness.”
The official re-opening is on Saturday, January 7 and Nygel invites everyone to come and see the new premises and try his new afternoon tea.
