The Whisky Bond’s Fiona MacFadyen, said: “The brand new Canal Café is a fantastic addition to The Whisky Bond, as it will serve not only the people working in the building, but is also open to the public.

“We’re situated right on the canal side on a popular walking route, close to a community of houseboats, so the Canal Café will be a lovely place to pop in, see what’s happening at The Whisky Bond and explore our interesting location, which is only minutes from the City Centre. The café will also be a great place for our tenants to meet and collaborate, something the Whisky Bond has become well-known for.”

Being situated on the canal is an attraction for dog walkers, and operator Liz Davis assures the cafe is dog-friendly, with plenty of free doggy biscuits and water for canine companions.
