About Sweet Clare

For as long as I can remember, I have loved baking homemade goodies, including cakes and jam, and hosting afternoon tea parties. Throughout the years, I have catered for a number of friends and family members’ birthdays, christenings and baby showers.

I have also been a secret hoarder of beautiful vintage china. This started off with the tea sets I inherited from my grandmothers and grew once I had bought two – yes, two! – Welsh dressers to fill up.

In 2015 I decided to combine these hobbies with my enthusiasm for hospitality, quality and excellent customer service, and opened Willow Bough, Wimbledon’s traditional tea rooms. It really is a dream come true for my work to be based around my favourite past-times and it’s a joy to bring the experience of a good old fashioned tea room to my customers. My favourite sound is the gasp of delight when we present our customers with tasty treats!
