Cocktail and craft ale replacement for Cowgate dessert lounge


Tamu was one of the original dessert lounges in Peterborough, but held a closing down sale in April last year

The Britannic House ground and basement building in Cowgate, formerly the Tamu dessert bar, could have a future as a cafe-bar.

The director of Peterborough-based recruitment organisation ZT Logistics, Neil Treliving, has applied for a premises licence that would allow for the opening of a cafe-bar in April this year - should government guidance allow.

The application to Peterborough City Council states that the business will be a coffee shop cafe in the morning from 8am, with light food options, and will operate as a bar after lunch. High end craft ale, wine and cocktails will be on the menu from 12pm to 10pm daily.

Also stated are the plans for a take out delivery service of rare craft beers from around the world, and the intention to apply for planning permission for outdoor tables for table service.

Live music has also been suggested as a possibility across the weekends, but the licensing application states: "We are not planning live music, but would like only a provision in case of an unamplified acoustic performance early in the evening."

Tamu closed in April 2020, advertising a closing down sale on its social media accounts.
