A NEW coffee shop and wine bar is set to open in Culcheth.

Culcheth TV and Video, on Lodge Drive, is set to be turned into what has been described as a ‘sophisticated place where the community can gather’.

An application for planning permission has been lodged with Warrington Borough Council in order to convert the shop.

Boasting a ‘chilled vibe with a fantastic drinks menu’, the bar promises to offer a ‘new breed of coffee shop’.

Planning application documents stated: “During the day, the premises will strongly focus on the consumption of coffee, cakes and non-alcoholic beverages – providing a destination meeting place.

“In the evenings and weekends, the focus will reflect more on the sale of wines and beer along with the continuation of soft drinks, hot beverages and light bites such as cakes, cheese boards, breads and cold meats.”

The proposed coffee shop would open from 10am to 11.30pm from Monday to Saturday, and until 10pm on Sundays and bank holidays – creating two full-time and four part-time jobs.

A consultation on the plans runs until Wednesday, October 23.
