Crosspool’s tea and coffee shop will close for building work before reopening under new management.

Outgoing Lounge @ Crosspool owner Paula, who set up the cafe in April 2012, is retiring. She said:

“After making 38,000 pots of tea, 20,000 coffees and lots of burnt tea cakes I have sadly hung up my soggy, flour covered apron for good! I have had the best 3-and-a-half years and realised my dream.

“I have learnt so much taking my little sad shop and transforming it into a very successful business that I will always be proud of. I have made some amazing life long friends and thank you so much for letting me into your lives. Heartfelt thanks. Paula xxx”

We’ll miss you, Paula! As soon as we have details of plans for the cafe we’ll share them.
