A new food venue will open on St Mary’s a week on Friday.

The Pit will be situated in the former Buccabu bicycle hire shop on The Strand opposite Holgates Green.


The owners were recently denied planning permission to convert the retail space into accommodation.


Food on offer includes gourmet 100% beef burgers made on the premises, 9-inch long American hot dogs, jacket potatoes, nachos, chilli con carne, pulled pork and wedges, with both eat-in and take-away options.


Everything will be recyclable from wooden cutlery and cardboard trays to the furnishings, which will be made out of recycled pallets.


Business owner Michelle Mapplethorpe told us that everything is going to schedule and she plans to open six days a week, Monday to Saturday from 11:30am until 8:00 or 8:30pm.
