A father and daughter team have upgraded their food outlet in Rugby.

Nick Hewitt and Melanie Campbell said Johnny Porkers, in Railway Terrace, had to move with the times.

“I felt people were changing the way they eat, so it was either change our company or just leave,” said Melanie.

“Dad and I never give up so we opened A Taste of Rugby and so far it’s been well received.”

They have upgraded the food and coffee and local crafts are now sold in the shop.

Melanie said: “We have gone posh as I say, but we are still the same old friendly family and welcome everyone.

“I now have 20 local to Rugby and Warwickshire people in-selling and I only charge them for the space.”
