Café wins award from Tripadvisor

A SOUTHBOROUGH café has won the 2022 Tripadvisor ‘Travellers Choice Award’, which entitles it to a sticker on the door and the use of the logo on its website and emails.

The Earl Grey Tea Rooms won the award thanks to positive reviews on the travel and leisure platform over the past 12 months.

Tripadvisor chief commercial officer, Kanika Soni said: “Ranking among the Travellers’ Choice winners is always tough — but never more so than this year as we emerge from the pandemic.

“Whether it’s using new technology, implementing safety measures, or hiring outstanding staff, I’m impressed by the steps you’ve taken to meet travellers’ new demands. You’ve adapted brilliantly in the face of adversity.”

Founder Roz Bambling said: “We got the news on Monday and the sticker is on order!”

She opened the café in 2017, using vintage china and stocking it with English roses in season.

Her community socializing initiatives include the ‘Chatty Café’ on Monday mornings at 9am-12, and the provision of free water and dog biscuits to well-behaved canine customers.
