Café Kitale in North Walsham reopened on Wednesday for takeaways and has introduced bed and breakfast rooms in order to cater for a potential rise in staycations post-lockdown.

Owner Robert Scammell said: “It’s just a quiet reopening really to try and get things moving a little bit and get a few staff back to work.

“As soon as we’re allowed to we’ll be reopening the outside area, the slight advantage we’ve got is that we have got a lot of space both inside and outside so we can socially distance quite well.

“As soon as we can reopen obviously we’re looking forward to welcoming guests to the rooms as the prediction seems to be that there’s going to be a lot of staycations this year so we’re hoping that will do well.”

Mr Scammell says the current focus is on collection, however a delivery service is available to elderly customers.
