King's Lynn's cafe bar Tipsy Teapot opens on the high street
A warm welcome from the owners and staff, who have been recruited as hosts and hand picked for their personalities, make the Tipsy Teapot a place to remember.
Walking in is like stepping in to wonderland with the wow factor at every turn.
Their menu includes drinks such as banana puffles, grand flamingles, high societeas and double bubble quaffs. Flamingos rule the roost and Mingo Keith is a personality in himself standing one leggedly guarding the upstairs bar.
The owners, who for the sake of running this bar call themselves merely “Mr and Mrs Tipsy”, have worked hard to get their new venue ready and last week welcomed invited guests.
Mrs Tipsy said: “We have worked constantly for just over a year and called in the cavalry of friends and family to help.”
The decor is lively and fun and they have used salvaged and reclaimed items wherever possible.
She said:”Everything is second hand, upcycled, recycled and sustainable and living a new life. The chair is made out of Heras fencing.”
Mr Tipsy said:”It’s about the whole experience, bringing our own style and something different. The team have been recruited on personality, to make you feel like you’ve had a good time, something extra to boost your mood.”
The venue officially opens its doors today from 5pm. Opening hours for the first week between Wednesday and Sunday (August 1) are midday until 11pm.
Thereafter every week the venue will open from Thursday to Sunday between midday and 11pm serving its loose teas, unique blend of coffee and its full drinking menu.
