A HEREFORDSHIRE cafe will be shutting its doors on two days over the next few weeks to allow staff some much-needed time off.

35 West in Leominster’s West Street will be closed on June 26 and July 3 due to staff holidays, a spokesperson has announced on Facebook.

It is just a month since the cafe celebrated the one-year anniversary of its reopening.

Whilst 35 West has been a staple of the street for a number of years, it was taken in a drastic new direction when it reopened under Carl and Emma Beebee.


The couple gave 35 a modern, colourful new look, started stocking alcohol and introduced a weekly late-night opening.

“One whole year of us at 35 West,” said Mr Beebee.

“One whole year of coffee, beers, cocktails, cake, conversation and books as well as shed loads of Flörtzinger.

“Thank you Leominster.

“The greatest achievement of ours is the friendships that have been born from this place that we all call home.

“This has been a dream come true for Emma and myself and it's been made pretty easy by all of you.”
