Old pottery gets a new glaze…

The Glost House

The Glost House in Longton is a stunning new cafe now open for daytime drinks, breakfast & lunches as well as after work nibbles, light meals and drinks of the evening variety! I was kindly invited to the official opening last Friday which was a warm, friendly, fun evening with yummy deli boards, flowing bubbles & live music.

This isn’t just a simple cafe opening but something a whole lot more special. Located at the old Pheonix Works on Kings Street, Longton, the Cafe is a renovation project, unveiling beautiful vaulted brink ceilings, tiled floors and huge windows. The cafe now has a contemporary twist in this historic building with seating booths, free range seats and to top it all a delicious menu.

Opened by Ann & Martin King, the Glost Cafe is the latest edition is a square of local businesses that operate in what was the Phoenix Works, one of many disused pottery factories in the area. This project continues to grow and Ann tells me that the number of businesses will grow too. Already, they are welcoming many customers from the local business community (lovely free & fast WiFi) & visitors alike who are enjoying delicious Staffordshire Oatcakes, Bircher Porridge, home made soups and tarts to name some of the highlights.

And…for those of you (like me) who don’t know what the word Glost means….check out the pic below….& make your first visit to this new gem in Longton.
