‘For a long time this place has lived in a vision I had of a lovely, friendly relaxed place that you could go at any time of day,’ Mrs Shelton said.

She said since opening in December, London Cafe and Bar and been busier than she expected.

‘Our menu is small as we don’t carry stock ” everything is delivered fresh every day,’ she said. Some items offered include traditional London pies and burgers, fish and chips, bangers and mash, salads and sandwiches as well as a full English breakfast menu, organic coffee, freshly squeezed juice and a variety of desserts.

They also have a traditional roast dinner on Sundays and anything on the menu can be made to take away.

Mrs Shelton said they had also applied for a liquor licence so they could serve ‘a small selection of boutique beers and wines as well as cocktails’ but for now, they were BYO.

She said the caf� was ‘most definitely a family business’ and the staff would soon become ‘an extension of our family’.

Located in the same car park as Dan Murphy’s, London Cafe and Bar is open 6am to 9pm, Monday to Thursday, 6am to 11pm Friday and Saturday and 7am to 9pm on Sunday.
