Once solely for factory workers, it has been open to the public on Canal Road for some years. He aims to create new dishes and bake new cakes.

“Under my ownership the food will all be top quality restaurant standard to give each guest a great experience.”

The cafe will be open throughout the week and offers free wifi and parking.

Another new cafe, Miranda’s has opened in the Bridge House.

Miranda Clark and partner Chris Kidd have recently opened Miranda’s Coffee Shop, selling fresh homemade cakes baked daily.

Mr Kidd said: “We wanted to bring a fresh coffee shop to the area where all the food and cakes are made on the premises and guests have a feeling of being in Miranda’s kitchen where she bakes daily. She is often asking what guests would like on the menu for next time they pop in and ensuring they are there next time if the ingredients aren’t to hand.” Miranda’s is open Tuesdays-Saturdays 8am-4pm.
