The Parlour, Harleston
LOCATED at the rear of Cornucopia in the old Corn Exchange you will soon find an exciting new business. The Parlour Tearoom will be opening its doors Wednesday 27th November. This beautiful building has a great atmosphere and it seems fitting to walk through the historic building which is now home to several antique and vintage dealers and retailers.
The Parlour is run by Onward Enterprises CIC which was set up by Peter Sindall MBE and his wife Margery Sindall in 1990. Peter had an extensive career in social services working with adults with learning difficulties and believed there had to be a way of offering work experience in a realistic environment which could,
in turn, become a stepping stone towards permanent employment. Operating in Thetford and Harleston Onward Enterprises now support around 100 adults between one and five days per week with a day service.
Thetford this is working at a contract packaging site either in the office, picking and packing or in the canteen. In
Harleston the company
will now be able to offer a more extensive catering / hospitality work experience at The Parlour.
Onward Enterprises CIVC is now run by Peter and Margery’s daughter, Rachel Allum-Sindall. Rachel has been involved in the business since 1992 when she
was manager of the
Thetford branch when that opened. Rachel is clearly passionate about what she
does and is excited about the
Parlour will provide. Helping Rachel at
that The The
Parlour will be Elly Chevous and chef, Gareth Hill. Elly will oversee the day to day running of the tearoom with Gareth heading up things in the kitchen. However, Elly is quick to point out that it will be the work experience adults who will be responsible for everything from waiting on tables to making drinks and cooking
and preparing all
the food that comes out of the kitchen. On a daily basis there will be four adults supported at The Parlour and their passion and enthusiasm are sure to be the stand-out features at this fantastic tearoom. This is important as above all else The Parlour is a tearoom serving delicious food and drink. The team
will be using fresh, seasonal produce to create their signature open sandwiches as well as sausage rolls, cakes, scones and much more. There will be a selection of gluten free options as well as different milk options to cater for dietary requirements. The Parlour will be
Monday to Friday as a social enterprise and then on Saturdays offering employment to local people. There is seating for 20 inside and as the brighter, warmer weather of spring arrives there are a further 20 seats in a pretty courtyard to the rear. Rachel and the team at Onward Enterprises are excited to be offering residents and visitors to Harleston a fabulous new venue at the heart of this historic market town. The tearoom is opening on Wednesday 27th November
and will be offering a festive taster menu on Saturday 30th November for those looking to get into the seasonal spirit – booking is essential so please get in touch to reserve your space. You can contact the team on email: theparlour@ onwardenterprisecic.co.uk
