BRUNDALL restau­rant East Hills Cafe Bistro is back in busi­ness af­ter a dev­as­tat­ing fire forced it to close last Septem­ber.

The blaze broke out in the marina of­fices below the restau­rant. “I thought it was over, how could we re­cover?” said busi­ness owner So­phie Hodgkin­son. “The last six months re­ally have been the most dif­fi­cult time. Hav­ing only started the busi­ness less than two years ago, we were start­ing to see the trade build – un­til I was called to say my bistro was on fire.

“But thanks to a great team, help from friends and fam­ily, and a lot of hard work we are back up and run­ning, with some im­prove­ments and re­fine­ments to what we had be­fore. We have man­aged to keep all of the old team and my head chef Car­los is re­ally look­ing for­ward to get­ting his kitchen warmed up again!”
