A village on the Lizard Peninsula could be getting its own wine bar if plans are approved.

Mr M Sillifant has applied for a change of use of a house into a bar at The Square in Cadgwith. 

Documents accompanying the application to Cornwall Council state: “The proposed facility will provide tapas-like food and beverages including alcohol.

“Overspill from the pub will be able to utilise the new venue, which will also cater for those visitors wishing to experience an alternative to the pub together with a pleasant outside garden area.

“It will be advertised as ‘no parking’ both at or near the access and on any website information.”

The site was given planning permission to convert an existing building into a two-bedroom house back in 2015, for which work is almost completed.

As the original planning approval included one car parking space, this would be retained as disabled parking for the bar.

The application adds: “With regard to deliveries it is envisaged that the unit will be serviced in the same way as the pub, whereby delivery vehicles utilise the large public car park to the north west of the site and goods are either decanted into smaller vehicles or delivered by trolley.”

“Staff are proposed to be local, most likely the family of the applicant, and so will either utilise the car park or simply walk to work.”

Cornwall Council has yet to make a decision on the plan. View the application here
