She explained: “It was too difficult to run a café as the buildings in the centre of Bath are tall and narrow with stairs and limited floorspace. You could not change the building in any way – for example by installing a dumb waiter.”The company has no plans to open any further shops, and is focused on its wholesale business, she added. “We missed not having a shop in central Bath, we are happy to be back.”last_img
