The Fourteas Story... A Success Story!!

The Fourteas is today, probably the most popular tea room in the county - without exaggeration!

The queues outside its door at the weekends, its numerous awards, the excellent reviews it attracts and above all the very large numbers of repeat clients, strongly suggest that they must be doing something right in there. The Fourteas is very much a customer and service-orientated tea room. With a theme too. That of the Forties! The obvious pun is well intended!

chronologically. In the Forties the people were using pure ingredients and traditional, well tested recipes without too much fuss. Good quality ingredients produce great products and when that end-result is offered to the public with a huge dose of good old fashion personal service, then success should be expected!

A unique, different product with masses of a character which cannot be found in today’s modern chain cafes. The Fourteas is here to stay! Because at the Fourteas they are constantly in Celebration of Life!!

It seemed the ideal period to place the theme

The Fourteas brand is constantly enhanced with additional items and ideas.

But there is more to it, than just the 1940s theme.

Zenios is an ex Hotel-Manager, with a London Ritz work experience behind him. He will always carry with him fond memories of his days there, when Afternoon Tea at the hotel’s Palm Court was, and
