To all our valued customers

With great regret we are announcing the closure of Forget Me Not Tearooms.

The decision has not been easy, but with our lease coming to an end, escalating staffing costs, soaring food prices and exorbitant energy bills (from £6,000 to £22,000 in under a year) have made it all but impossible to maintain the high standards of service to which we have always been committed. And as everyone will appreciate, the Covid pandemic also presented a significant challenge, arriving as it did when we had been trading for barely a year. We feel that it would be an unfair burden on our loyal customers if we were to increase our prices in order to meet these costs, which has left us with no alternative but to close our doors.

The dedicated staff; Eden, Mel, Sal and Bec, who have been with us from the start have been given notice and are facing redundancy. The unwavering support and commitment of not only them but also Natasha, Amber, Daisy, Emelia, Emma and Cass during this challenging time have been truly admirable and we can wholeheartedly recommend every member of our team as they seek new opportunities.

We would also like to say a massive thank you to each and every team member who have worked for us in the past. Forget Me Not would never of succeeded without you. As cherished members of the Forget Me Not family they have always been more than simply staff.

To our wonderful customers (you know who you are) we extend our deep gratitude. You have been supportive, made us laugh and given us reassuring hugs when we needed them. You have made our little business something we will forever look back on with joy.

We also can never give enough thanks to our family and friends who have literally stood by our side. They have not only felt every high and low but they have been there, without ever having to ask them, cheering on the tearooms or holding us up. Always giving their unwavering, never ending support. We love you all deeply.

So to everyone who has been a part of the Forget Me Not Tearooms story for the past five years, thank you for allowing us to feed, water and serve you, and for being part of our journey. Your company has meant the world to us. We hope to see you all again in whatever new adventures await us all. Three 5⭐️ hygeine ratings, Trip Advisors travellers’ choice winner, 2023 runner up in the Muddy Stilettos awards and a whole lot of love from you our customers. We are super proud of what our our little tearooms has achieved.

Missing you already,

Kate, Garry and Charlotte
