Team at Rosey Lea cafe and tea room in Bishop's Stortford now running cafe at Henry Moore Studios and Gardens in Perry Green
Rosey Lea has opened a fourth branch after taking over the café catering at Henry Moore Studios and Gardens.
The tea rooms, founded by owner Leanne Gregory in 2012, has been appointed by the team at the sculptor's former home in Perry Green to provide a new all-day dining menu.
Rosey Lea has two branches in Bishop's Stortford – in Market Square and at Wickham Hall – and also recently opened at North Weald Airfield.
"I am thrilled that Rosey Lea will be located at Henry Moore Studios and Gardens and I hope that Henry Moore himself would be proud to have our very traditional and authentic style in his grounds," said Gregory.
"We have a wonderful team, delicious homemade cakes and tasty lunches. We look forward to bringing our offer to the visitors that come to enjoy a day out in this stunning location."
The menu includes brunch items and coffees from 11am and tea and light lunches throughout the day meaning visitors can enjoy homemade quiches, sandwiches, salads, cakes, cream teas and ice cream in the café overlooking the sculpture gardens.
"We're delighted to have the Rosey Lea team joining us, bringing with them 10 years of experience running two successful sites in Bishop's Stortford," said Clare Tomlinson, head of enterprise at Henry Moore Studios and Gardens.
"We are confident they will deliver a fantastic service and we look forward to the delicious food and enjoyment their new offer will bring to visitors and venue-hire clients alike."
In January, Rosey Lea picked up Bishop's Stortford mayor Cllr Keith Warnell's Business of the Month Award, which is organised by the Bishop's Stortford BID (Business Improvement District).
It was nominated by Isabel Hospice's Stortford area support group leader Renee Friend for providing an amazing service during the lockdowns, employing local young people and supporting charities. The café once again provided refreshments for Isabel Hospice's Lights of Love service in December at no cost to the charity.
