What happened to the Light Café Restaurant?

Light Café logoThe Light Café is still here, we have re-opened as Light on the Common and are committed to serving great food in a relaxed and friendly environment. We decided to change the name along with the décor as there was a misconception that we were not open for dinner. In fact with the new décor, amazing pendant lighting the restaurant is a fantastic place to spend the evening next to the new stove in a warm and cosy setting.
