The New Thatch is Hatching...

...under the new old name of The Cherry Tree.

I'm told that the current building is based on an old transport cafe called the Cherry Tree which served travellers along the A6 in pre M6/M61 days. No information yet on exactly when it became licensed, but I am researching.  Since then it has been also been called the Pavilion and the Happy Pig and possibly more.

Strolled in last night and spoke to the fitters. It's opening to the general public this Friday, with a private do for friends, family and suppliers on Thursday.

Not looking as pubby as it was; definitely leaning gastrowards.

Will try the beer Friday, and I have nudged t'Y regarding testing the food.
