A new coffee shop opened its doors in Netherfield today and will be just the ticket for those braving the cold when waiting for the train.
The new venue is called The Waiting Room – a nod to it’s location near Carlton Station – and is based in the former HSBC building on Victoria Road.
It opened to the public this morning (Saturday 23) and the family-run business offers coffees, teas and an array of fine freshly-cooked foods.
Owner Jayne Sissons, who lives in Carlton, has opened the business with her husband, Gary.
She told Gedling Eye: “I’ve wanted to start a business like this for years. Originally we just wanted to start a small sandwich shop, but our ambition has grown.
“We were just waiting for the perfect location and we found this. We thought at first it was a bit big, but then we thought: ‘let’s just go for it'”
“The other businesses around Netherfield have been really kind to us and are excited we’re starting this up. We hope it will be the starting point to encourage other new ventures to open up in Netherfield.”
