A TEA room transporting customers back to the 1940s has been opened in Weston.
Michelle Austin launched The Blitz Tea Room in Waterloo Street this week, with a World War Two-themed menu and music.
She said she had originally decided to make and sell occasion cakes, but eventually settled on opening a tea room. She said: “I have always been interested in vintage things and the past.
“I’m ex-military, and that’s why I chose the 1940s. I served in the army for nine years before leaving in 2004.
“Since then I have been trying to find something challenging like the army used to challenge me. I used to work in a tea room but my boss was going to reduce my hours. I had always wanted to start my own business and wondered what I could do.

Michelle said in the future she was looking to host World War Two evenings with live music in the style of Vera Lynn.
