Little Chef to be re-born as ‘Country Lounge Coffee Bar’

Information gleaned from the Stamford Mercury today:

The former Little Chef site has been purchased by the Freeman family of Duddington (owners of the Royal Oak pub) and is undergoing refurbishment to create the ‘Country Lounge Coffee Bar’ which will be run by Bradley Freeman.

THE STAMFORD MERCURY REPORTS: Alan Freeman, who owns The Royal Oak in Duddington, said he hoped to bring new life to a building that had lain empty for three years.

He added: “We want to reopen as a traditional cafe. It will be more like a bistro in the evenings.

“We are totally refurbishing it. We will have a patio outside. We’re also going to have a small bric-a-brac shop inside. People can come and buy small ornaments and traditional furniture.”

 

THE STAMFORD MERCURY ALSO REPORTS: Planning consent for the refurbishment is not needed, but the family does need a licence to serve alcohol. Should their application be approved by Rutland County Council, they hope to be open for business by the end of June.

    Great news and let’s hope that they get a licence to serve alcohol. It could be the new White Horse! The new Parish Council should support their application.
