A cafe run by a local business group and set on the former site of a post office in Tunbridge Wells was inspired by one of Britain’s rarest stamps.
Founded by the Rexaus Group, which runs a host of businesses in the South East, Two Penny Blue, which will open on Silverdale Road on September 20, draws its decor and color palette from the rare twopenny stamp, a reference to the post office that once stood here.
Around 90% of the food and drink served in the new cafe is sourced from Kent and Sussex, with a ‘strong focus on food miles and sustainability’.
Clare Singer, Operations Manager, said: “We even managed to source a red wine, which is not usually produced in England. It’s from Meopham Vineyard.
“We have lovely staff who can tell customers all about the food and the history.
“It will be more of a destination location,” Ms Singer added, saying the cafe’s catchment area also included commuters from High Brooms station, residents working from home, mothers gathering around school and Moreover.
