A Harry Potter Themed Wizarding Tearoom Is Now Open

A Harry Potter Themed Wizarding Tearoom Is Now Open

Potterheads seeking out their next Harry Potter fix should look no further than a magical new wizarding-themed tearoom in Sheffield.

The Steel Cauldron opened on July 31st and has already proved hugely popular, racking up over 3,000 bookings for the month of August.

Inside, the cosy space is filled with battered suitcases, leather-bound books, sparkling lights and mismatched chairs.

There's a giant tree in the centre trailing gems and feathers, and a piano tucked into one corner.

Muggles can't move far without coming across cabinets crammed with curiosities - think quill pens, apothecary-style bottoms and scrolls.

The Wizards Tea costs £15 and gets you a delicious magical-themed feast, including Yorkshire Cauldrons (think sweet and savoury Yorkshire Puds stuffed with fillings like Yorkshire rarebit or salted butterscotch ice cream).

Expect 'Surprise Parcels' of gingercake, chocolate frogs, and 'magic beans' - which can all be washed down with a butterscotch beer shake. Yum!

There's a whole lot more going on beyond the food and drink, though.

The crowning glory lies upstairs, where the owners have converted the upper floor into a Harry Potter-themed apartment, which they plan to hire out for wizard-worthy magical sleepovers.

We don't have pics or booking details of the apartment just yet - but we do know that on entry, a brick wall somehow opens up into (wait for it) Diagon Alley. Sold!

To accommodate social distancing, the tearoom is currently limited to 45 covers at a time, meaning visitors can be spaced out accordingly.

The owners have plans to expand into workshops like wand-making and potion-brewing, along with live music events, once restrictions allow for it.

"I think people were ready for some magic, after the year we've had so far," tea room co-owner Rob, who launched the business with wife Nikki, told The Star.

"When we first promoted the website last month, we got 1,000 thousand subscriptions in a day.

"Once we were ready to launch our Wizards Tea, we emailed those 1,000 people, and got 700 bookings in an hour, so there's definitely an appetite for what we're doing here."
