Boston Tea Party (BTP) has secured a further in the Midlands at The School Yard in Harborne.

The opening of what will become the group’s 15th site is scheduled for late June and will seat around 100 guests inside, with a further 50 outside in a private walled garden at the Grade II listed landmark, The School Yard. The new opening will create a further 20 jobs.

The group opened its first site in the Midlands in Birmingham city centre last autumn.

The School Yard is already home to Prezzo and Urban Coffee Company and developers EDG Property is rumored to be announcing a new food school at the clock tower scheme shortly. This will see the development’s commercial units fully let.

Sam Roberts, managing director of BTP, said “Following the opening of our existing café-bar in Birmingham city centre in 2012, our customers have been suggesting we look at the surrounding areas too. We’ve been searching for suitable locations and buildings, and Harborne fitted the bill perfectly.

“The School Yard is a great scheme with bags of character and enables us to have an outside seating area, which we were very keen on. We hope it will be a space for the locals to come and enjoy anything from a coffee, bite to eat to a craft ale or glass of wine.”
