We have done a bit of research and found out that the “Neighbourhood”, building was originally a family run grocery store called, “Hamilton’s”, for over 50 years.

Some of our regulars used to shop here and were thrilled that we retained a lot of the original features, like the beautiful wall tiles and the oak shelving.

We are wondering if any of our website visitors can remember the building before we moved in? Do you have any interesting recollections, historical facts or photographs?

If anyone has any memories about the building or area please share them with us by emailing us at info@neighbourhoodcafe.co.uk.
