Stroud News and Journal: Future uncertain for Georgian Tea Room based at Rowcroft, Stroud

"We think our future will be with pre booked functions and supper clubs in the near future to enable us to train a new cook/baker.

"Our clientele from 2018 had been mostly tourists, and post Covid these numbers have not recovered. 

"This means that, although our local customers have increased, we still need to be working owners to survive. 

"Our future remains uncertain but we would love to be able to offer murder mystery evenings again in conjunction with pre booked supper clubs.

"We envisage afternoon teas will also need to be pre-booked.

"Hopefully we will know in the next few weeks when and on what basis we can open again."
