Linda Barnett – Owner, The Travelling Tea Room

The Travelling TeaRoom was a dream of mine that’s become a reality.  Passion fuels motivation, and having a passion for food, recipes and entertaining, I have created a business that combines all three.  My business serves an authentic British teatime experience in your home or office for any occasion.  This complete end to end service allows the hostess to be a guest in her own home.
