“I’m so excited to unveil a whole new space for afternoon tea in town, its my absolute favourite British tradition, and our take will put a modern spin on it, from the recipes the the aestethic - it’s going to be anything but quintessential,” says Bea Vo.

"I want people to feel like they can come to Butterscotch for a good time, whether it’s a cocktail and a slice of cake or a full blown affair with all the trimmings.”

The new opening will be split over two floors; the first will be home to a relaxed café space dotted with footstools and window bench seating, perfect for on-the-go coffee, cakes and Bea’s signature bakes alongside the second instalment of Bea’s Goldilocks porridge bar.

The main staircase will lead to the afternoon tea room, a space adorned with white marble tables, a hand-made paper flower wall feature and accentuated by tones of copper, gold and rose gold with desserts such as a deconstructed Banoffee Pie with Toasted Banana Bread wafers carefully suspended from the ceiling.
