New grog shop for Whitfield

with one comment

“The Threeway Café”  is set to become a second take away liquor outlet in Whitfield.

Opposite the Whitfield hotel, the café has been operating on and off for a couple of years selling liquor with meals.  This new planning permit, recommended at tomorrow night’s council meeting will enable the sale of local wines to customers rather than just offering wine and other alcoholic beverages with their meals.

The planning permit application is to change the current On Premises Liquor Licence to a General Liquor Licence in order to sell packaged liquor from 7am to 11pm, seven days a week.  That will add some competition to the hotel and should provide competitive pricing on beer and general liquor sales.

It is interesting to note that, whilst this planning permit is about to be granted, the business is currently on the market and is certainly not operating anywhere near the available 16 hours mentioned in the application before council.  A General Liquor Licence should certainly assist in the sale of the business.

There is no indication how soon the applicant and owner, Jennifer Watkins, will commence trading.

  1. You’ll be getting a supermarket next … and maybe a ‘Save Whitfield’ group. That would give you plenty to blog about.
