Wine bar that could replace estate agents is 'what Louth could do with'

People in Louth say they are excited about plans to open a new wine bar by the market square. A planning application has been submitted to replace the former site of Crofts Estate Agents in Louth's' Market Place with a new wine bar.

12 Market Place has been empty since Crofts Estate Agents moved to 3 Market Place in April. The applicant, who owns Crofts Estate Agents, submitted an application to move the wine bar into the building on Wednesday, August 8.

Images in the application show indoor and outdoor seating. There will also be a fridge for pre-prepared cold food.

The application says it will work as a café and bistro during the day and a wine bar during the evening. Opening times will be 8am to 10pm from Monday to Saturday and 10am to 6pm on Sundays and bank holidays.

Trevor Cash, 69, from Horncastle, said he would make the trip to Louth to try it out. He said: "It's what Louth could do with.

"It has got loads of normal pubs, but it could definitely do with something like this. It will brighten the place up a bit."

John Mackin, 68, said: "It will be fantastic. I will definitely come. It's great for the town."

One woman, however, was not quite as excited by the prospect of the wine bar opening in the heart of the town. Vanessa Hickling, 50, said: "I can't believe it. We don't need a wine bar when we have got plenty of pubs already.

"I don't know if the people of Louth are particularly big wine drinkers. I don't think we need it, you can get wine from most of the pubs anyway."

Situated by the fruit stall at the town's market, the wine bar will likely benefit from passing trade. Following the pedestrianisation of the town centre there should be plenty of people passing by the shop window during the day, as well as in the evenings.
