As some may know, just before Covid 19 struck, Rosie Lea had made the decision to purchase the lease on a grade two listed building and had embarked on a restoration project planned to be complete and open to the public on Easter Weekend.
Unfortunately this project came to an abrupt halt, and, along with our sister tea room in Brockenhurst the businesses now stand empty and closed.
However, we are determined that we will keep our chins up and Rosie Lea Kitchen will be open once more in its new home, Rosie Lea House.
To celebrate our opening we are planning a calendar of events to bring our customers all together once more.
To help us continue our project, finish the refurbishment and open our doors, we have turned to our local enterprise partnership who are offering to match fund £ for £ any money we raise with grant money. This is where you, our wonderful customers come in. For all tickets purchased for the following events, we will receive grant funding, now, when its needed most.
Our Grand Fire Evening will celebrate the best of local food & drink supporting all our local suppliers who have also been hit hard by the pandemic.
All being well we will hold this fabulous event on Saturday 5th September 2020.
Join our chefs as they cook a stunning banquet Al Fresco on our BBQ and Indian Fire Bowls. From Fire Roasted dishes to a Whole Hog Roast and something extra special for dessert, this will be Rosie Lea at her very finest!
Tickets will be £40 per head for this 4 course banquet and include a very special welcome drink to celebrate our return .
Our Mad Hatters Tea Party will be Held on Saturday 19th September from 12pm.
Themed all things Alice in Wonderland, join us for a fun filled family afternoon of live music, beautiful afternoon tea and games. This is a chance for families to re connect after being kept apart for so long, we plan a real celebration of togetherness and if you wait patiently enough, you never know who might pop along from Wonderland to join the fun! (fancy dress optional but prizes for the best!!!)
We would be so grateful to all those who wish to join us at either event and look forward to seeing you all again soon.
In the meantime stay safe, stay well and eat cake xxx
