Couple call last drinks at cafe/bar
Seven years ago Angus and Di Woodhead drove into Cromwell in a caravan looking for work fruit picking. They ended up buying a cafe.
The Woodheads served drinks and food for the final time at The Cider House Cafe & Bar in Cromwell on Sunday.
Angus Woodhead said they moved to Cromwell from South Canterbury where they owned a fish and chip shop and small cafe.
‘‘We came down in a caravan and were going to travel around for a couple of years. We came to Cromwell to do some fruit picking and were told the cafe was for sale...It’s been good. We have built up the business. Di has earned a reputation of making the best coffees in town - even though she doesn’t drink it.
‘‘We have been here for seven years and it was time to move on.’’
Misha and Andy Wilkinson, of Misha’s Vineyard, have purchased the building and wanted to create a tasting room that was ‘‘a little bit different and with some unique features’’, Misha Wilkinson said.
‘‘We want to create a space that can offer a great experience for visitors and residents alike.’’
