Having already been granted planning permission to convert the historic building on Cattle Market Street into its new home, the local distiller's licensing bid has revealed further details of the venue.

The restaurant and bar upstairs will be capable of seating 84 people, with proposed opening hours of 8am until 1am Monday to Saturdays and 10am until midnight on Sundays.

The team also hope to provide live music in the background, with either jazz, acoustic or piano music performed “at a conversational level”.

Alongside running the restaurant, Bullards also intends to offer guided tours of the distillery and tasting sessions on site.
