Silver Fox Tea Room, on Fakenham Road, will close its doors on September 7 due to a lack of trade.

It was opened three years ago by Amanda Medler and Sarah Douglass, both from Taverham, who met in the Silver Fox pub five years ago. The pub will remain open.

Mrs Douglass, who used to own a beauty business, said: "Opening a tea room was something we always wanted to do - so we did it."

The tea room sells fresh to order food from paninis to jacket potatoes and Slimming World friendly meals.

They also stock home made cakes.

Mrs Douglass said: "It's been an amazing three years and we've become good friends with our customers."

In the last three months of business, Mrs Douglass said that she intends to have fun.

On September 7 they are holding a charity afternoon tea to raise money for life-saving surgery for Karen Pugh.
