In 1864 a manageress at the Aerated Bread Company’s shop at London Bridge persuaded her directors to sell pots and cups of tea with bread and butter to city workers. Soon the firm’s original function was ignored and ABC Tea Rooms were opening everywhere.

Then in 1894 Joseph Lyons and his partners opened their first
teashop in London’s Piccadilly. Within ten years they had established 95 more up and down the country. Lyons’ waitresses were renowned for their smart uniforms and efficiency that gained them the nickname of ‘Nippies’ The first half of the century was the era of the teashops and the sprung up everywhere, Express Dairies, Fullers, Liptons and others established their chains, no department
store would dare be without one.

There were teashops for everyone... jolly ABCs for City clerks and shop girls, smarter affairs for those who enjoyed an afternoon dance, simple décor for family teas and the Art Nouveau elegance of the Willow Tea Room designed by the brilliant Glasgow architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh. For the best part of a hundred years the nation snacked and chatted, danced and flirted in the decorous atmosphere of the teashop.
