New coffee house and bistro is set to open in Burnham-On-Sea

A brand new bistro and coffee house is set to open in Burnham-On-Sea next month.

Yorkshire couple Sam and Steven Crowden have this week signed a deal to take over the lease of the former French's cafe in College Street, which shut down six months ago.

They plan to open the new-look business in mid-July under the name 'Crowdy's Coffee House and Bistro'.

Sam told "It's an exciting venture, which we're really looking forward to. We both love Burnham and think it's a great location for a new coffee house and quality bistro."

She added: "In addition to excellent coffee, we'll be selling a wide range of food, from breakfast rolls and panninis to cakes, during the daytime."

The couple have already received 20 job applications for the five new jobs on offer - a sign of the times in Burnham.

French's closed last December when its owners said they could no longer afford to keep the business running.
