Marleys in South Wootton sets up new service delivering afternoon teas

A popular café in South Wootton forced to close due to the coronavirus crisis has set up a new service delivering afternoon teas.

Marleys, of Langley Road, founded just over a year ago by Julie Coe, is now offering customers the option of having home-made food delivered to the doorstep. Delivery is free within a five-mile radius of her business.

Julie told the Lynn News: "It began when everything went on lockdown and we had to cancel Mother's Day bookings. I gave people the choice of having the food delivered and we had a great response with 90 per cent of them opting to take up the idea.

"It's gone on from there and I am now doing teas to mark special occasions, such as birthdays and anniversaries. There has been a steady stream of inquiries and the response has been very encouraging with people saying how much they like the food."

A typical afternoon tea includes a selection of sandwiches, oat crackers, two scones with jam and cream, two slices of cake, strawberry and cream meringue, a brownie and a macaroon. There is a gluten free option too. Both cost £15.95 and a child's tea is £6.95.

"People can also add an item as a special request, such as a bottle of prosecco," said Julie, who needs 24 hours' notice.
