Croft Tearoom is a Community Interest Company (CIC) consisting of a community based Tearoom, local food and artisans gift shop, outside catering service and community notice board for local information, events and heritage. As a CIC we operate as a commercial company but with social aims, re-investing all our profits into developing the business and/or projects of benefit to our community.
The Tearoom was established in 2009 by Carole Wells of Circa Ltd. The original building, which was derelict, was demolished and in its place a new, architecturally designed, ECO building was built using local builders & recycled materials to mirror the style of the 18th century buildings opposite. This created a lovely new building as well as a new business, which now brings income and people back to what was once a thriving high street.
