A NEW bar and deli will be opening in Morpeth’s Sanderson Arcade by the end of October.
Shopfitter Pringle Contracts has started work on the transformation of the final unit at the complex into Barluga Deli, which will provide space for 120 diners.
The £1million investment is creating 35 new jobs and the outlet promises a European style café and casual dining experience.
The Barluga brand is part of the Fluid Group, which also owns Central Bean Coffee House, which also has an outlet at the arcade.
Fluid Group Director David King said: “Sanderson Arcade is a really stylish development in a beautiful town and everyone on the team is looking forward to opening the new Barluga Deli here.
“We have some really exciting ideas for the look and layout and can’t wait to unveil them when we open.”
The development will complete the second phase of Sanderson Arcade. It is one of four new units to be constructed on the site of the former Morpeth Comrades Club building following its relocation.
Arcade Manager Debbie Anderson said: “Barluga Deli is a perfect compliment to what is already available, and we are delighted that work has now started on this final unit.”
