Thorne Moorends Town Council is inviting bids from prospective business tenants to run the café at the Delves fishing ponds.
The town council has put the running of the Delves café out to tender, saying it is an “exciting opportunity to run an established catering business”, and is inviting proposals from prospective tenants.
The council says the café building has been occupied and run as an eatery for ‘many years’, and the venue is said to be “very popular with visitors and anglers alike”.
The building has, however, been vacant for the past six months after the council came to an agreement with the previous tenant who asked in February to end their lease. They had run the café since April 2021 following an extensive refurbishment of the building.
Thorne Moorends Town Council says the Delves is a “popular, picturesque, local green space boasting woodland and two fishing lakes which are managed by local voluntary groups. The site is popular with anglers, ramblers, dog walkers and others taking a stroll around the setting which is treasured by the community.”
Along with the café dining area the council owned building has a meeting room, two store rooms, and toilet facilities that include a disabled toilet.

Interested parties have until Thursday 19 October to submit a bid.
