THE OFFICIAL opening of new Rubery cafe Polly Put the Kettle on proved to be a great success with the venue busy all day.

Former Birmingham Poet Laureate and local resident Spoz did the honours and entertained those who went along with a humorous poem he had penned on the Polly theme.

In keeping with the vintage decor of the cafe, which has lace table cloths and uses traditional China, there was live rock ā€˜nā€™ roll music, classic Austin cars and a seven-seater limousine.

Some people even came along in 1940s costume and were rewarded with free tea and cake. Owner Susan O’Leary said: “We can seat 30 and we were absolutely full all day. ”

As people were leaving, more were arriving and the classic cars were also a big hit. “I want to say a big thank you to Spoz for the poem and to everyone who made our official opening so special.”
