At Cambrai Court, we understand the value of convenience and a touch of luxury to enhance your business day. We're excited to share the latest news that promises to make your coffee breaks and casual business meetings even better. A Costa Coffee drive-thru is set to open just across the street, ensuring your caffeine fix is just a short walk away!
The historic Horseshoe pub, a landmark dating back to the 19th century, is getting a modern facelift. This establishment, which once operated as a Wacky Warehouse, had sadly closed its doors shortly before the onset of the Covid pandemic in 2020. But, as they say, when one door closes, another opens. The former pub is now on a transformative journey to become a hotspot for coffee lovers and grocery shoppers alike.
Following the approval of redevelopment plans, the old Horseshoe pub in Hall Green will soon house a Costa drive-thru and a Farmfoods supermarket. The initial proposal from the owners, City Estates, was to repurpose the entire area. However, a revised plan sought to preserve the main building of the Horseshoe, with only the banqueting suite being demolished. The community saw this plan come to fruition in April.
Construction activities commenced in June, and as anyone passing by Stratford Road can attest, the progress is evident. The former car park has been boarded up, and the banqueting suite's remnants are no longer visible. Workers are bustling about, bringing the vision to life.
While Costa Coffee has remained tight-lipped about the exact opening date, their recent statement has stirred excitement among local residents and businesses. A spokesperson for the brand shared with BirminghamLive, "We can confirm that work has begun on a brand-new Costa Coffee Drive-Thru store on Stratford Road in Hall Green. We’re looking forward to being a part of the local community and can’t wait to share more details soon.”
For all our Cambrai Court businesses, this is not just about coffee. It's about convenience, fostering community connections, and having a space where you can discuss ideas over a cup of freshly brewed coffee.
Stay tuned for more updates, and get ready to make Costa Coffee your new favourite spot for those essential coffee breaks. We're thrilled about this new addition and hope you are too!
