The Whistle Stop Café is open from 9am to 5pm every Tuesday to Sunday, welcoming dog walkers, cyclists, passers-by, parents and grandparents and anyone else strolling past Tetbury’s Victorian Goods Shed, now a vibrant arts centre for the South Cotswolds.
This Saturday The Whistle Stop Café, together with The Goods Shed, will hold a cafe Launch Party from 12 noon to 2pm.
At 12 noon bring the children down for a pre-lunch show. Performer Jason Maverick will provide a high energy street style show inside The Shed with visual comedy, robotic dancing, mime, incredible tricks with crystal balls, balloon modelling and, possibly, the world’s highest five ball juggling! Just turn up on the day, it’s only £5 per child to watch the show.
The Whistle Stop Café will be run by Sally Cosham. A Tetbury-based mum who has a huge passion for food and drink and has managed restaurants in the past, including one on the tiny Channel Island of Sark.
Sally says, “It’s an absolute honour to at the helm of The Whistle Stop Café. I have been watching the development of The Goods Shed for the last two years since we moved to Tetbury, and am so excited to now be involved in its bright future.
“The café’s aim is to provide local produce, cooked fresh on site. We are working with Hobbs House Bakery, Ben’s Kitchen, Jessie Smith Butchers and Godsell’s Cheese, together with Vinotopia wine merchants. These are familiar, trusted names for the area and demonstrate the quality of what we want to offer local people and tourists alike”.
