‘Smoke’ cafe and wine bar to open in Wilmslow later this year

The Cheshire Smokehouse has revealed that it is planning to launch ‘Smoke’, a contemporary cafe and wine bar, in Wilmslow town centre.

The well-established family business, located in Morley Green, just outside Wilmslow, promises that the exciting new venture will expand on their ethos of offering ‘real food’ and will continue to support other high quality local food and drink producers.

Utilising knowledge and experience gained from over 100 years, as well as four generations of curing and smoking fine foods, the new and independent cafe and bar will serve bar snacks, sharing boards and small plates along with a range of wines, beers and spirits from both local small-batch breweries and continental specialists.

Many dishes will be based around The Cheshire Smokehouse’s own products from their butchery, bakery, smokehouse and kitchen and wherever possible, ingredients will be sourced from the same local artisan suppliers whose produce adorns the shelves in the The Cheshire Smokehouse shop.

Owner and Wilmslow resident Darren Ward said “The Cheshire Smokehouse is all about good food, good drink and good company. We felt this was the natural progression for us, using what we already know and produce and applying it to a different setting.

“We want to showcase our products in the best possible way and this second site is the perfect opportunity for us to do just that.”

Inspired by culinary ideas from around the world, the venue’s continental approach will provide the essence of the ‘Smoke experience’. The emphasis will be on a laid back style underpinned by efficient service.

There will be openings for both full and part-time staff to take up roles in the kitchen and bar areas.

Work is scheduled to begin soon, with seating over 80 covers expected once work is completed later in the year.
