Former Portswood Costa could become micropub PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 23 January 2018
Costa Portswood The former Costa coffee outlet, on the corner of The Broadway and Westridge Road, could be transformed into a micropub if planning applications before the council are successful.

An application by agent Paul Ashton Ltd, on behalf of client ‘The Crafty Fox’, proposes to create a micropub “that will specialise in selling craft beers in a welcoming and friendly atmosphere”.

Externally no changes are proposed, and there are no plans to cook food on the site, although warmed snacks “based upon pre-prepared food” might be available if there’s demand.

Proposed opening times are 11am to midnight seven days a week, although staff are likely to be on site earlier.

There are likely to be two full-time, and two part-time employees.

Costa, which opened in Portswood at the end of 2011, closed the branch at the end of October, and the site is currently vacant.

It was an HSBC bank branch before becoming a Costa.
