A NEW fish and chip shop and deli is set to open in Hereford, taking over an old fancy dress shop.

Taverna Fish Bar and Deli will now be the new permanent home for The Little Cypriot, an independent catering service run by Patricia Tzirki.

For the past five years, she has been running a mobile food business, concentrating on corporate bookings and mobile pop ups at various venues in Hereford, including De Koffie Pot, next to the Old Bridge and The Stagecoach, in West Street.


In partnership with her son George Masters, she is now looking to open a permanent shop in Bridge Street, combining Greek and Mediterranean cuisine with the traditional British staple.

They aim to transform the shop into an open-plan takeaway and deli, where customers can see their meals being prepared.

“We hope this will add to the overall experience of the customers’ visit,” said Mr Masters.

Building work has begun on the former Fancy Pants Costume shop, with the pair hoping to open in April.
