Where NOT to go for a cuppa

Top of my list of places NOT to visit.... Neutral

National Anthem 'snub' trio thrown out of tearoom




Ms Atkinson has thousands of pieces of memorabilia


A royalist County Durham tearoom owner told how she threw three women out after they refused to stand when the National Anthem was played.

Anita Atkinson opened Royal Teas in Stanhope in time for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and to display some of her huge collection of memorabilia.

The National Anthem is played at 15:00 BST and Ms Atkinson said she expected her customers to stand.

So when three women refused to do so, she threw them out.

Ms Atkinson said: "It's meant to be funny and it's a little quirky part of the tearoom that we have got. At 3 o'clock every day we play the national anthem and we expect people to stand.
"It tells you that in the legend on the menu. The whole thing is just a bit of British eccentricity.

"But these three ladies vociferously refused to stand and made it known that they were anti-monarchist so god only knows why they came into the tearoom in the first place. So I threw them out."

She said she believed the trio had been surprised to be thrown out.

"They told me my coffee was rubbish but it is a tearoom so I don't care", she said.

Ms Atkinson's collection of royal memorabilia runs to thousands of items.

The toilets in the tearoom have been turned into thrones and there are cardboard cut-outs of members of the Royal Family along with many other pieces. Rolling Eyes

Interesting Business Plan ...

Do you think she knows the royal family are inbred Germans ...?

Oh, sorry to hear you're feeling poorly, watchman.

The most effective night nurse is the one that brings you a hot brandy with a taste of honey and a squeeze of lemon.

Hope you feel better soon.





PS: Great film, 'Deliverance'.

Thankyou KK

You are correct it is only man flu .... should shake it off in a couple of days ...

Deliverance ? possibly the only half decent film Burt Reynolds ever did. IMHO.

(which of course isn't humble at all....)
