It was back in late February that the Hinckley Free Press had noticed a premises licence application was placed in the windows and this was lodged with Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council (NBBC), in hopes that drinks could be served up again.

Yesterday (Monday, 10 May), posters advertising new job vacancies, in hopes to recruit staff, appeared outside of the Chapel Street-based venue, confirming that the building will be put to use again following its two-year closure back in 2019.

The vacancies are for a chef, bar staff, cleaner, and barista – and it has been stated that both part-time and full-time jobs are available.

Staff will be able to work a range of hours, including late nights and weekends. And, those with enquiries are being encouraged to email

As well as this, local contracting firms have been spotted clearing away overgrown leaves and plants at the front of the building’s exterior, as well as debris left at the side of the building.

The inside of the unit is also seeing renovation works take place, as it is being emptied out from how it once looked.

It would become the third bistro to trade in the town centre, joining Newdegate Street’s two bistros – Alara Bistro & Coffee, and the more-recent Palace Bistro.

At present (Tuesday, 10 May), no social media channels for the venture have been launched.
