Local chippie legend Shan Gill has moved back to Coventry after many years in Beeston, in order to look after his elderly mother. Thankfully Gill’s Fish And Chips is in safe hands with new owner Sunny, and we’re pleased to report that the food is still superb.

Many Beestonians will be familiar with the pop-up tasty dim sum stall which has been a regular feature outside L’Oliva. We’re delighted to report that it will now have a permanent home in the old Sushi House unit on the corner of Derby Street.

Gorgeous bakery/cafe The Doughmother has been one of Beeston’s best kept secrets for a few years now, tucked a bit out of the way on Central Avenue. Work has started turning what was Saint into a second branch, and we expect it to be a roaring success.

Artworks has sadly closed now. However, all is not lost, as their Waste Less Shop has relocated just round the corner to within Ford & Guy. Means you can still get quality cleaning personal care product refills such as washing up liquid and shampoos (and cut down on plastic waste while you’re at it).
