THE “MOST CHARMING” café in Worcestershire has been revealed.

Evesham’s JellyPickleJam Vintage Tea and Gift Shop is turning ten this weekend and staff have now been given an extra reason to celebrate.

The Vine Mews tearoom has been named the most charming café in Worcestershire 2023 in the LUXlife Magazine’s Restaurant and Bar Awards.

Founder and owner, Lisa Stephansen, said: “This is a fantastic honour, which comes at a challenging time for everyone.

“Covid as well as energy, food and cost of living increases have placed us all under pressure, and maintaining a small business through this has been like living on a knife edge.

“To receive this award gives us a boost and reassurance that our friendly and unique venue is worth the tireless hard work of my team, for whom I am extremely grateful.”

JellyPickleJam celebrates its tenth birthday on Saturday, June 3 with special offers for customers.

Lisa added: “We want to share this celebration with our valued customers, whom without, us and many other high street business would not exist.

“We constantly hear that people are disappointed with the lack of independent shops in Evesham and unless local residents and tourists support those of us who are here, this will not change.

“We need to break this ‘chicken and egg’ cycle and help the town flourish by all playing our part.

“Evesham has a great range of independents, which are run by passionate, hard working people.

“By choosing an independent store over a large chain, you are supporting local families and the community, which in turn entices more business to the town.”
