The opening times of Scarborough Cricket Club’s tea room have been significantly extended.
The room, with a great view across the pitch, used to open only during first-class cricket days.
“But we think it's so lovely it should be open all year round”, says the club’s astute commercial manager Victoria Wilkinson.
“We serve Baytown coffee and various teas”, Victoria says. “Customers can choose from cakes, toast, waffles, sandwiches and salads. All the cakes are baked on site”.
The tea-room initiative is part of a wider campaign to establish the cricket club as an all-year-round business and showcase the beauty of the venue.
The tea room can be hired privately for baby showers, christenings and parties.
The summer marquee will be available for wedding bookings for the first time, from June next year.
