Diners can enjoy a free mince pie when visiting The Tea Room Number 1 in Epworth High Street.
The tasty homemade pie is offered by The Tea Room in the market town, as part of this week’s link with the Epworth Bells.
The pleasant corner cafe in High Street is run by Joyce Brightmore, who has transformed it into the place to be for a friendly tea or coffee and a chat for customers of all ages.
She said: “As a big thank you to customers I am offering this mouth-watering treat.” Joyce has spent her entire working life in the food industry and is urging the community to respond to her generous offer.
The cafe has always been a fixture in the town and after Joyce took over in October 2013 she set about transforming the menu with a range of her own homemade fayre.
The former quality assurance manager for a number of food companies said her cafe even had free wi-fi to entice customers.
She added: “I have worked in the food industry for many years – in fact ever since the age of 15. I have been in this area for a long time and decided that opening a cafe in the town was something I really wanted to do to. People have responded to my introduction of homemade cakes, biscuits and other tasty treats.”
Opening hours are Tuesday to Sunday, 9.30am to 3pm – closed on Mondays. She aims to cater for all ages and tastes and passing trade including walkers and cyclists. Her menu choice includes home-made soup and cakes and her own gluten-free and vegetarian food choices. Also full English breakfast at £5.95, served all day.
Food is made or bought in fresh each day, including meat from nearby Parkin Butchers, and she even makes her own vegetarian sausages.
She further added: “I am always trying to introduce something new and even welcome recipe ideas from customers. The cafe is also open for people to hold small meetings. To find out all about the things we offer and to find out more call 01427 238303.
“Everyone is welcome.”
