Dozens of jobs have been created at a new Birmingham café-bar which opens today.

Trading has begun at the new Boston Tea Party (BTP) at The School Yard in Harborne following a 10-week build.

The new café has been transformed to seat 100 guests inside, with a further 50 outside in a private, walled garden at the Grade II-listed landmark.

Sam Roberts, managing director of BTP, said the opening had created 43 jobs, adding: "Following the opening of our existing café-bar in Birmingham city centre in 2012, our customers have been suggesting we look at the surrounding areas too.

"We've been searching for suitable locations and buildings, and Harborne fitted the bill perfectly. The School Yard is a great scheme with bags of character and enables us to have an outside seating area, which we were very keen on. The transformation that the unit has gone through is incredible and we hope everyone enjoys the finished café. We're very proud of it."

Neil Edginton, managing director of School Yard developer EDG Property, said: "This is another great name for Harborne and shows yet further confidence in Birmingham generally.  

"Boston Tea Party is a great brand and adds strength to the mix of operators already open."
