Paul Winterburn and Jane Dunning gave themselves the perfect Christmas present last year, when they gave up high-powered careers in to take over their favourite café...

A year on, the Arthouse in Penistone is celebrating its fresh success with a new drinks licence, a new menu – and plans for a new events space upstairs.

Former banker Paul and Jane, a lecturer in cookery and nutrition, have been supported by Enterprising Barnsley.

Paul says: “We’ve always loved the Arthouse Café and when the opportunity came up to buy the place we couldn’t resist. One of the best things for me is the 10-minute commute instead of 20 hours by plane to the Philippines!”

PEACE OF CAKE

Peace and goodwill come free with the refreshments at 1554, Sheffield Cathedral’s new coffee shop.

Serving its own blend of roast coffee alongside fresh deli snacks, 1554 is open six days a week until 3.30pm with free wifi and 10 per cent student discount.

OPEN HOUSE AT NONNAS

Nonnas’ new cantina restaurant in Ecclesall Road has been officially opened by Lord Mayor Coun Talib Hussain. The venue, which celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2016, has also unveiled a new wine list after months of research.

COOK UP A GF TREAT

It should be a happier Christmas for cooks with food intolerances thanks to city-based specialist Delicious Alchemy, which has just launched the UK’s first gluten and dairy-free Christmas cake mix.

Simply add fat, eggs and brandy, stir and bake. See deliciousalchemy.co.uk.
