Bosses of a new cafe bar due to open next week say it will cater for all tastes throughout the day.

Loungers, the West Country based restaurant/café/bar group, is opening Castello Lounge in Market Street, Wellingborough, on Wednesday (April 6).

The company is spending £625,000 to transform the former McDonald’s site into a ‘retro home-from-home’ where dramatic artwork sits next to oversized vintage sofas and statement light fittings in the eclectic style loved by customers of Loungers elsewhere in the country, including Kettering and Market Harborough.

Craig Williams, operations manager for Loungers, said: “Wellingborough is the perfect location for our Lounge concept.

“There’s already a thriving and vibrant community and we’re really looking forward to playing our part in the foodie scene here.

“Residents will be served by the very best - our new team is passionate about hospitality.

“Our excellent pre-opening and ‘on the job’ training programme ensures our staff will be at the top of their game.

“Training includes expert guidance from one of Europe’s most acclaimed baristas.”

Bosses say the new Castello Lounge has created 25 jobs for the area and will cater for all tastes throughout the day.

Customers will be able to get a coffee, have a business lunch with colleagues or an all-day brunch.

The menu will also feature tapas dishes and burgers, as well as classics like beef chilli, mac and cheese or something from the specials board.

There will also be a menu for children.
