Cherish Vintage Tearoom is a much loved business owned by Louise Pickering. Having grown up in a family of foodies it was inevitable that the bug would be inherited! After looking for suitable premises for around 3 years, the old Post Office building in Gullane was the perfect place. With great support from the local community, family and friends the old Post Office building was lovingly converted into Cherish Vintage Tearoom. Enjoy a trip back in time as you listen to nostalgic music and dine from original vintage china.

Returning from serving in the Falklands, Gary opened his own café in the late 1980s in Kircaldy, Fife. He then went on to manage the famous ‘Old Howgate Inn’ near Penicuik in Midlothian. Recently, Gary has enjoyed making jams and chutneys which have gone down a storm at local craft fairs. Gary enjoys football and is an avid armchair supporter of his beloved Glasgow Rangers.

Gary is joining the Cherish team part time and I’m sure his wealth of experience and expertise will prove to be invaluable.
