Since opening in October of 2017, McKenzies Café Bar has been a huge success with the patrons of Blackwood, as the town was calling out for a stylish venue where you could enjoy a fantastic cup of freshly ground coffee, as well as great-tasting homecooked meals in a comfortable and relaxing setting.

Owner Rob Duggan is no stranger to the Blackwood High Street – originally trading from his first shop called Zaks Clothing in 1991, and more recently, Tilley Beddoe Furniture Company for the past six years.

“My background was always catering,” Rob Told Voice.

“I have a degree in Hotel Management and was the Catering Manager for Debenhams for many, many years.

“It’s our thirteenth week of trading and its just been incredible, the support from the local people has been amazing, and everyone who has visited has left us really positive reviews on Facebook and Trip Advisor.

“Our freshly ground coffee comes Matthew Algie in Glasgow, and where ever possible, all meals are made fresh in-house from scratch using the finest locally sourced ingredients from the area.

“Being fully licensed to serve alcohol with a meal, one of the huge draws of our establishment is that we’re the perfect place for a pre-cinema or theatre meal – and if you show us your tickets for your show, you can get 10% off the total cost of your meal and drinks.

“Our all-day breakfasts are incredibly popular too, with our full-English with all the trimmings being a best-seller for only £4.95.

“The menu is full of great treats for all ages to enjoy, including a full breakfast menu, a wide selection of freshly prepared sandwiches for both children and adults, ciabattas, salads, homemade soups, and lots of main meals too, such as our homemade chilli, lasagne, and Thai green curry.

“Afternoon teas are available seven days a week and are priced from £10.50 per person – 24 hours’ notice is required when booking, add a glass of prosecco for £3.50 or a bottle for £16.99.

“For Valentine’s Day we will be offering a two-course set menu from Wednesday February 14 to Saturday, February 17 – available from 5:30pm until 8pm.

“And, for Mothering Sunday on March 11 we will be offering a special afternoon tea, available at the usual price of £10.50 per person.

“Call now to secure a table for both these dates!”
