Memories of Bosherston, the Tea Gardens c1959

Cheese 'N Beans

I used to go down to Bosh nearly every weekend in the early 1980s, all the way from Warrington, with a few mates to go fishing. We stayed for a week once in an old caravan in what I think was the vicar's garden. We virtually ate every day at the tearooms, nearly always cheese 'n beans on toast. Vi was a lovely woman who was always very kind to a bunch of young men. I can always remember one last day there when we only had enough money for petrol to get home and Vi gave us the the biggest pile of toast you could have ever seen. I'd love to get back down to Bosh some time ... maybe some of the local girls who we met are still around... Steve

Iced Slices

I grew up in the area and often visited as a child. One particular memory is of ordering a pot of tea for four - it was so big my Dad couldn't lift it and the cheese on the sandwiches was about an inch thick - delicious! Since moving away to London, I try and visit every time I come home and ALWAYS order an iced slice - the best cakes in the world & I live in fear of the day they're gone! See you soon Auntie Vi!

Family Home

My father Gordon Thomas was born in the adjoining cottage which is now part of the tea garden I have many memories of the people and the surrounding area. My dad passed away on the 1st Oct 2008 and I made a sentimental journey back home. I did what everyone else seems to do, I popped in to see Aunty Vi. She is fantastic, the tea room would not be the same without her.

Happy Days

I visited the Bosherston Tea Gardens every May Bank Holiday week from 1967-1972. The reward for walking from Broadhaven beach via the Lilly ponds was tea and a piece of iced cake complete with a cherry. On an earlier holiday the reward was a Chocolate 3D that as the name implies cost 3d. It is a delight to find that the scene has not changed since 1972 and that the cafe is still open run by the same people. I am planning to return in July this year and look forward to visting the cafe. Our holidays in Wales were the once a year opportunity to see Christopher, Martin and Janet. Alas Molly and Tony who introduced us to Broadhaven are no longer alive but we exchanged memories of Broadhaven at Molly's funeral in November 2006.

Happy Days.......

I along with very many local girls over the years helped out at the Tea Gardens during the school holidays. I remember going to the front door a few times to ask if they had a job for me and being so scared I came away with an ice cream instead. I need not have worried as Aunty Vi and Don were so lovely. I enjoyed several happy years with them until I left school and the village to work away. 40 years later and I still look forward to seeing Aunty Vi when I go "home".

A Family Business.

I am the lady at the door with my husband Don Weston. The date is about 1959 because that is the year we had electricity in the village and started to sell ice cream. Hence the Walls sign. My parents Mr and Mrs Caesar Evans started the tearooms here in 1922 and after my mother died in 1952 my husband and I ran this little business together very happily for fifty two years until his sudden death three years ago. But I have managed to keep the business going with the help of many good friends. I am now nearly eighty five and affectionately known by many customers as Auntie Vi. We sold your postcards for many years.
