Situated close to the beach at Seaton Carew, Gladys Vintage Tea Room provides fun for children and adults alike. The vintage war helmets on the wall that you can try on and take a picture off reminded my father of a funny war time story. Historical decorative talking points of the place continues into the bathroom including the disabled one. On the wall of the bathroom there is a fake washing line with a pair of vintage nickers up. Great big frilly ones. There is also war time posters with positive vibes of victory.

The theme is further explored within the menu. For example the victory burger. In addition, tea is served in a fine bone China tea set, the type that would be considered as a fine luxury of the 1950s. I found the food to be scrummy and there is certainly a lot to choose from. There is also an option to sit and eat outside to the left of the front door. Near the front door there is also a fun scene one can stick ones head out of and take a photo for Facebook. Surrounding this café there are plenty of activities you could take part in. Such as, ten pin bowling, crazy golf and various fair grounds. So why not take yourself for fun and frolics at Seaton Carew.

Outside the café are three steps going in, making it a challenge for those in wheelchairs or with a pushchair. However, inside the café the floor throughout is flat. The disabled toilet does have two movable and helpful handy holds for sitting. Whilst there is no braille menu the staff are perfectly happy to read things out to you. Furthermore, they are not specifically trained to work with people who have dementia, Alzheimer’s or autism. Despite this, they are happy to help in any way they can.  I feel that the décor may be a little too stimulating or bright for some.
