CHARMOUTH: New management at The Old Bank Cafe
THE Old Bank Cafe in Charmouth is under the new management of Vic and Clair Coulson.
The couple took over the cafe on The Street in April having both had careers in the catering industry.
Clair trained in Rousdon and worked as second chef at By The Bay in Lyme Regis, while Vic has a background in waitering.
They live in Chard and unexpectedly decided to take on the cafe when looking for a house in the village, where Clair - granddaughter of late Charmouth resident Audrey Huxford (nee Pearce) - still has family.
The Old Bank Cafe is now open six days a week (closed Tuesdays) for breakfasts, light lunches, specials, hot drinks, cream teas and cakes. Vic and Clair are also trying to open as many evenings as possible with a separate dinner menu. They offer a children’s menu and Sunday roasts with a new loyalty scheme in which the fifth roast dinner is free.
The couple would like to encourage more local residents to come and try their menus.
They hope to be open throughout the winter when they also plan to refurbish the cafe.
