    Oddly enough, that is one of the first images that always springs to mind, that and the Ford Pop with no engine rolling into the filling station.

    Good luck to them, but isn't the location a bit shit?

    Might just be me thinking that, but it's rather hard to spot that area unless you look into it more, it's very hidden away.

    Agreed but they are ideally placed for Stafford's curry quarter mile along Bridge Street.

    It sounds like the type of establishment that a certain clientele will seek out via the Internet before they go. Craft beer bars are rarely a high street footfall type of place. It places like Birmingham and London they crop up off the beaten track on railway arches, industrial units and refurbished shipping containers etc.

    Urban gentrification.

    A number of other units are about to open too, which will increase the footfall. I'm looking forward to going.

    Always thought that area would be great for a few food/drink outlets.

    I went to Candid on Monday and I had lovely drink of Ridgeside beer.

    I hadn't appreciated until Monday how many independent businesses are located at Woodings yard. The former library is also looking great and will hopefully encourage more foot fall in that area.

    I wish the business every success.

    I was there on Thursday with my wife and eldest child. It was very good. The pizza and beer with both very good.
