Landmarks: We Are Located Close to Humber Bridge
Service Areas: Proudly Serving Hessle and Customers in the Surrounding Areas
The Black Cat team are what makes the shop what it is , many customers like to visit and sit with a drink and cake and watch us working away , the place is often are described as buzzing and having a great atmosphere.
From the Cheeky Yorkshire banter from Neil to watching Debs making the cakes on site in full view of everyone.
Our shop is very much part of the Hessle community.
So here is a bit about us -
Neil - Husband to Vicki and a typical Yorkshire man (and proud) , loves his classic motor bikes and cars , he is the brains behind the Black Cat the shop come from a plan in his head, quite a perfectionist he wont settle for anything less , Neil spent 20+ years in the construction industry and after promising his wife that he would make her a Tearoom he made it his mission, although running a quiet tearoom certainly didn't go quite to plan - although secretly he does love every minute of it.
Vicki - Wife to Neil and very much the backbone of the shop, working behind the scenes, usually keeping Neil in check - Vicki is also a successful breeder and exhibitor of Pedigree British Shorthair cats , hence the shop name - Vicki loves spending time at the shop and talking to and meeting the customers, although Neil will often call her a distraction as she is rather a chatterbox.
Abi - Abi joined us April 2017 and has learnt the ropes very quickly wasted on washing the pots she now is one of the team who make and prepare the food , Abi is a colourful character and is always game for a laugh , she lights up the kitchen with her amazing tattoos and fab sense of humour, although when Abi and Vicki work together they can get easily distracted and lots of giggling can be heard.
Ellie- Ellie joined us Feb 2018 on an apprenticeship scheme , she learnt every aspect of running the tearoom and after completing the 12 months we offered her a full time job which then followed with her becoming assistant manager , Another asset to the tearoom she takes it all in her stride and is really part of the furniture now , in her spare time she likes to binge watch Netflix series and message us with things we have forgotten, we wouldn't be without her .
Paisley- Paisley has been with us since October 2018 she works front of house and what an amazing job she does , usually single handily keeping all the customers where we want them to be , Paisley may seem quiet and polite but deep inside her is a fun young lady oozing wit and charm and some amazing one liners she makes us laugh a lot. Paisley claims to be Vicki's adopted daughter but we all know its just to get her hands on her handbags , she works hard and has a love of all things luxury
