Would you like to see a Caribbean restaurant in Gatley?
There was a Caribbean food vendor at Gatley festival – we got chatting and he suggested he might be interested in opening a restaurant in the village. He’d like to know whether residents would support such a venture so I said I’d ask and feed back the comments.
“I will be selling traditional Jamaican food such as ackee and saltfish, curried goat, jerk chicken and jerk pork. All of which will be accompanied with rice and peas, plain rice or ground food (which will need to be ordered).
I also would like to obtain an alcohol license, as I would like to have ‘Cocktail Weekends’ where I will be using authentic Jamaican rums, giving my customers a real taste of the Caribbean.”
He’s not got as far as looking at property yet, so don’t ask where exactly it would be – just looking at the idea right now.”
I posted this on the Gatley Facebook page during the week and had a great response with over 90 comments (overwhelmingly positive). If you’d like to add your comments here, please do and we’ll pass them on.23 Comments
