Independent coffee wagon rolls into town


As you walk past the new independent coffee wagon, Ginger and Rhubarb, on Carlton street you may notice it’s a bit different. Not only is it housed in a beautifully renovated horse box, the family run establishment is primarily stocked with local home-grown delicacies including: Bradley drinks from North Somerset, Extract Coffee and Hot Chocolate from Bristol, handmade treats from Christopher’s Chocolate in Weston and chorizo pokers from Somerset Charcuterie

Run by Fay Powell, with the help of her two-year-old son, Ginger and Rhubarb aims to offer Weston more than just a good cup of coffee: “I’ve lived in Weston my entire life and I’ve wanted to do this for several years. With all the exciting changes happening in the town centre, it seemed like the right time.

“I think we have so much to offer in our region and I’m passionate about using local produce wherever possible, even down to the renovation of the horse box which was renovated by a local fitter Tudor Catering Trailers in Weston, and we’re delighted with the result. I’ve started to get requests to do more lunch time food, so we’re looking to expand already and offer sandwiches and toasties for adults and kids, as well as the homemade cakes we already offer.”
