Mugg and Bean is apparantly moving to the new Mall which should be interesting. Thet are keeping the Woodmill Lane location going but are changing the name to Savannha Cafe. The Watermill has changed hands as has Mother Holly’s out at Millwood. The Niqua Choo Choo are packing it in after notice of a 525% increase in rent and Wordswoth Coffee has also closed. Becca’s has opened where Lunar Cafe used to be and Trio have moved into Hettie’s old shop offering Halaal takeaways and a good curry. We are supposed to be getting a Scooters Pizzeria, Ronnie & Julians Fish and Chips is opening next to Spar and Wild Plum Cakes & Pasteries is opening up in Woodmill Lane near the Lifts. Finally new owners have started renovating Upstairs on Main, the Swing Cafe and a Big Dog Bikes pub above their showroom where Del Gustos use to be.

Chaplins in Woodmill Lane have a new menu and have brought back some of their more colourful dishes. I don’t often do full meals, mostly I am looking for something to snack on whilst I read the paper or kick back in between doing stuff I don’t want to do. And different is definity good. Most of our local menu’s are not different. They are mostly very very predictable. So it is interesting to see that Chaplins are going back to the sort of menu they started with.
I enjoy the bruschetta
