A NEW restaurant and a refurbished pub are hoping to spice up the food and drink scene.
The Cosy Club restaurant in the old Post Office delivery office in Horseshoe Lane, Stamford, will open its doors to the public at a launch party on Tuesday night.
And the London Inn pub, in St John’s Street, is open again after a 10-month revamp.
Alex Riley, managing director for the Cosy Club chain, is excited for the opening.
He said: “We are at that point where we are putting the finishing touches to everything. By Saturday morning it will be in a put-together stage and ready for the opening party on Tuesday.”
The restaurant will offer a full menu from 9am to 10pm, seven days a week. Converting the former delivery office cost the company £620,000.
Mayor of Stamford John Binder will open the eatery on Tuesday morning, and during the day children from St Gilbert’s Primary School will take part in a cookie-baking session with executive chef Theo Guy.
Workmen from Lincolnshire County Council were repairing broken slabs in Horseshoe Lane, Stamford, on Monday, next to The Cosy Club. Area highways manager Kevin Brumfield said: “We will be investigating how the damage happened and we will look to recoup any cost.”
The London Inn has been transformed from a small room to a spacious three floor pub with a good value, quality menu.
Work started in January to convert the pub, and owner Nick Pistolas has invested a significant amount of time and money into the new establishment.
He said: “We never used the building to its full potential. We are hoping to bring a new eating experience to Stamford. It will be classic pub grub done with style.”
The pub held trial evenings this week and will open its doors to the public this evening.
