Throughout August Inside the 22 ran a ‘Drop it while it’s hot’ coffee delivery service to many of our town’s hair salons, barbers and beauticians. During the month over 200 deliveries of over 400 drinks, cakes and pastries were made, so based on this success the scheme is continuing in September.

A new street food menu is offered in the bar too.

As well as being able to browse stock from the comfort of your own home, customers can also benefit from 10% off their first order online.

And if you can’t find what you’re looking for ask Sally to see if she can find that disc for you.
From Thursday to Saturday the smell of freshly made bread, cakes and pastries wafts through Churchside Arcade, enticing shoppers in to try the artisan Revel Bakery. Croissants, bagels, sourdough loaves and a mouthwatering selection of cakes are available from 9am – 1pm.
