How it works
Mel's Marvellous Teashop is a mobile way to enjoy a delicious afternoon tea. With an oven in the van, scones are baked to order, fresh and hot. If you have a space to park our vintage caravan, we can bring it to you. The van is a mobile kitchen (registered with Woking Council as a 5-rated food business) and we specialise in making cream tea fresh to order. We bring everything with us, clear up and take everything away with us (except your full bellies of course!). You can hire the van for two hours or more. We arrive early to set up before your event and take about 30 minutes to clear up afterwards. The caravan costs £50 an hour to hire.
We have a menu of scones, cream, jam and a range of tea-leaf tea. Scone recipes include cheese, fruit and plain. Vegan and gluten-free are available and there may also be 'Scone of the Day' made with chocolate, fruit or home-grown and dried herbs, when available. Scones can be served with clotted cream (dairy or vegan) and a choice of home-made jam. Cheese scones can be served with chilli jam. All scones come with a cup or a pot of loose-leaf tea. As in all the best afternoon tea establishments, refills are complementary. We will also carry cold drinks in our fridge if desired. What's more, we love inventing. So, if you've got a penchant for a special type of scone, ask us and we'll give it a go.
We believe in supporting local businesses. The clotted cream is sourced from Surrey based Libby's Larder and the jam is either home-made with seasonal fruit or from Surrey based Jam-Packed Preserves. We pride ourselves in shopping locally and sourcing our food responsibly.
The Blue Scone Van is available for parties, functions and events by the hour. We have vintage china if you want that extra element of decadence - see our vintage crockery hire page for more information. A deposit is requested to cover breakages and the hire costs start from 50pence an item. We deliver the crockery to you and can, if required, set the tables for you and provide cotton napkins.
