An old snug area and storeroom at The Boars at Spooner Row have been transformed into a cosy place to meet for coffee and a cake from 8am every morning.

Russell Evans, co-owner, said experienced barista Peter Joy had also joined the team.

Mr Evans said: 'We decided we wanted to make this place into a bit more of a community hub.

'Coffee is massive, so we thought we would capitalise on that and make sure we were a top-notch coffee shop.'
