A new café on Westgate which received planning permission in November is set to open at the end of June.

The Picture Café which is currently being renovated in the Grade II listed former retail unit on 77 Westgate, will be the second branch opened by husband and wife Paul and Julia Williams.

The couple from Redmile who have enjoyed success with The Picture Café in Bingham, had hoped the Grantham business would be open earlier this year, but said the refurbishments had taken slightly longer than anticipated.

Julia said: “We are really excited to be coming to Grantham, and hope it will help bring people back into the town centre.”

As with their Bingham branch which has been running for over three years, The Picture Café in Grantham promises to provide customers with a wide range of food and drinks within a mix of contemporary and vintage surroundings.

The café’s name derives from Paul’s passion for photography, with his work also forming part of the decoration of the premises.

The family-run business prides itself on using locally sourced produce to create meals that are all made in-house.

Julia added that they have already carried out interviews for new staff from the area, although they are still looking for a chef de partie.

While the official opening date is not yet confirmed, guests at the official unveiling will include friend and supporter Mark Dennison of BBC Radio Nottingham.
