What's up with Cherry and Ice??

Post by mikej »

Just wondering....this lovely place has been closed the last couple of times in the last few days I've been intending to drop in.

Anyone know anything?

Hello

Cherry and ice looked very closed this evening with paper up at the windows. Does anyone know what’s happening?

Agreed. Always been a fan of the coffee, atmosphere and staff generally and they do host events nights which aren’t available elsewhere nearby (eg: debate night, gaming competitions). Very glad and relieved there wasn’t anything more to it than a holiday/refurb.

Not sure but I passed a few days ago and the signs have changed and now say they are finishing up the final touches (assume a refurb of sorts has taken place) and are open in a week - not sure how long those signs have been up for so possibly reopening this weekend?..

So it looks like one of the reasons why Cherry & ice have closed for sometime is that it is diversifying.

New vinyl lettering on the window is promoting picture framing and mirror cutting services.

If they do it will be a very interesting and welcome addition to the high street!

Part of me also saw/thought that but then also thought maybe it was already on the windows from a long time back and I never noticed it!? No idea but hopefully should be reopen pretty imminently
