Today it has been announced that St Annes’ Greens Bistro have closed their doors and hand over the keys forever.
Greens Bistro, a small cellar restaurant just down a backstreet off of St Andrews Rd in the centre of St Annes, is a family run business that have been going for 20+ years. Paul and Anna Webster opened their quaint little bistro in 1999, holding an AA rosette rating for food through years.
The rustic little restaurant housed low ceilings and a romantic alcove, feeling not dissimilar to the hidden gems you find scattered across big cities like London or Manchester. The restaurant had a warm, homely, loving touch that could only be given by an attentive family run business.
In January this year, the bistro announced that they had chosen not to renew their lease, and finally close the business after 20 years, hoping to close on 26th April 2020.
Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the bistro was forced to shut their doors early, along with all other restaurants across the UK. This meant cancelling a month’s worth of bookings and cutting short their opportunities to say goodbye to all their customers, old and new.
With the hope of reopening for a few weeks in June after the rumours that the government might allow it, Greens Bistro were sad to find out that this was not possible and resumed closing the business for good.So today, with heavy hearts, the family announced that they were all packed up and ready to leave the premises; wishing all their customers and friends good luck and goodbye.
