The former owner of long standing Cowbridge restaurant, Farthings, has resurrected the popular restaurant site with a new venture, exactly a year after the original business was sold on.
Having owned Farthings for nine years, Natalie sold the business in October 2009, to pursue new opportunities and ventures in outside catering for weddings and other events. However the Cardiff-based company that took Farthings over went into liquidation after only nine months of trading, making all the staff redundant.
Now back at the helm and under the new name of The Quarter Penny Café, Natalie and her husband Justin are providing a cosy, friendly eating and meeting place for customers old and new.
Open daily from 8.30 am to 5 pm, The Quarter Penny Café offers an all embracing menu with light bites, drinks, children’s meals and a choice of hearty main courses all under £9.00, daily specials and delicious home-made desserts. A takeaway service available on many of the menu items, in addition to party and catering services both on and off the premises, capitalising on Natalie’s background in outside catering and food consultancy.
Natalie says: “Farthings was a Cowbridge institution and I was devastated for staff, customers and the town when it was forced to shut. Many felt that the former owners tried to change too much of what made Farthings so successful in Cowbridge, and they lost lots of the restaurant’s loyal customers along the way.”
“After realising how much the people of the Vale of Glamorgan missed Farthings, my husband and I decided to resurrect the popular restaurant venue, with a new venture. Our emphasis is on providing unfussy, home-cooked food in a welcoming environment where you can escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.”
“We hope to welcome back many of the restaurant’s previous customer and lots of new ones too! We have reintroduced lots of the old favourites including our famous French Dressing, delicious brunch options and Raspberry and Hazelnut Meringue! Basically something for everyone”
In addition to being opened daily, The Quarter Penny Café is available for private hire in the evening for parties, weddings and business meetings.
