NUNEATON’S Jailhouse Bistro is set to officially re-open to members of the public with an opening night tomorrow evening (1 June).
The opening night is set to get underway at 7pm on Wednesday, 1 June.
This will give residents and visitors coming from out-of-town the opportunity to give the bistro a go under its new ownership.
It had previously sat unloved and vacant for a total of two years, since mid-2019, when its past owners made the decision to permanently close the doors.
New signs of life were noticed in February, when a premises licence was signposted in its windows and an ‘under offer’ sign was placed atop the building.
Earlier this month, after the Council gave the applicants the ‘thumbs up’ to serve up drinks on-site, the new owners were recruiting staff to join their team – and local contractors were giving the building a complete overhaul.
Those wanting to turn up can simply do so as no ticket or booking is required on the night.
The 7pm opening hour for tomorrow’s opening event is a temporary measure – after this has taken place, it will regularly trade from 10am each day onwards.
A spokesperson for the bistro has stated that they will be “serving fantastic food, amazing coffee, and a fully stocked bar.”
At the bar, gins, vodkas, cocktails and prosecco will be all be served up for those fancying a ‘bevvy’ with their dishes.
But, if beers and ciders are more your thing, two beers and two ciders are on tap – these are Carling, Amstel Bier, Strongbow Original and Strongbow Dark Fruit.
Strongbow Original is a scrumpy dry cider, whilst Strongbow Dark Fruit has hints of blackcurrant.
They will even be blaring some popular tunes as a DJ will be on hand to provide the soundtrack to their evening entertainment for the weekend.
