Cox & Baloney

For owners Amy and Joney, vintage-style tea parties with a twist are the order of the day.  From their gorgeous shop on Cheltenham Road, Bristol they run a delightful vintage-style tearoom amidst their full to the brim with treasures and gems shop. 

A hen party with Cox & Baloney would begin with the very best tea and some gooey homemade cakes.  There would be Babycham from teacups, all served in your own private room and followed by a workshop of your choice.  You could try your hand at making knickers, nipple tassels, hair fascinators, tutus or having a vintage Hollywood-style hair and make-up lesson.  They’ll organise everything you need and make sure you have a wonderful time. You can even let your hair down and try on as many vintage outfits as your heart desires. Of course, if you need a little help, they'll be around to help you achieve exactly the right look.

It’s not just hen parties Cox & Baloney can make special.  The morning of your wedding is a busy time and they can ease the pressure by delivering a sumptuous hamper of delicious goodies to you and your bridesmaids.  You’ll find mid-morning snacks, pastries and of course, some champagne!  They’ll make sure you don’t forget to eat and bring some extra sparkle with them.  

On the day of the fair, both Amy and Joney will be around, so do make sure you come and ask them about their hen party ideas.  Don’t forget to pop into their lovely shop if you’re passing too.  They have everything you could possibly need for creating a truly vintage lifestyle, from original clothing (ladies and gents) to furniture, homeware, books and a dressmaker who can make wedding and bridesmaids dresses.  There’s also a beautiful 1960s wedding dress for sale and it comes complete with a photo of the original owner wearing it.  Their tearoom is open for quintessential English favourites at elevenses or for a traditional afternoon tea served on delicate china and you simply must ask about the Cream Tea Towers!   

Everything Cox & Baloney stock has been lovingly hand-picked and is either original vintage, designer or limited edition.  You can find them on Facebook and Twitter as well as in store and if you’re planning a hen party with a twist - they really can host a perfect afternoon.  Think of lashings of clotted cream and fresh strawberries as you enjoy a good gossip over a piece of cake and a fresh cup of tea.  Think.. why am I not already there?


  1. Oh I love Cox and Baloney - oh to have a tearoom as nice as theirs one day. My hen party service "The Secret Tea Party" in Bath ( runs very similar Vintage Afternoons with a Twist for lovely hens - it's all the rage! Good luck with the fair, hopefully I will join you one day Love Mrs Stokes

  2. Thanks Mrs Stokes! I haven't been over to Bath for ages and must come and say hello again soon! Would still love to do something together.
