Wine and pizza lovers are in for a treat as a new bar, tempting those with a taste for quality food and drink, is set to open in an East Lancs village.

Will's Wine and Pizza Bar will open its doors in what used to be the old Spar Shop in Gisburn Road, Barrowford, on Wednesday January 9.

And the new establishment is the brainchild of 23-year-old Will Farnworth.

Mr Farnworth, who's from Barrowford said: "I've been working in the wine industry for some time now and wanted to bring something a little different to the area.

"We'll be offering a large selection of wines as well as a small selection of craft beers, lagers, ales and spirits, and from February we'll be serving pizzas and other food too."

With the wine selection set to change every week or so, customers will be able to sample new and exciting ranges from all over the world, and Mr Farnworth said his aim is to have a wine menu that's constantly changing in order to offer his customers wines that wouldn't necessarily be offered by the glass in other establishments.

And on the food front, sharing plates and pizzas will be the major players, with vegan and veggie options available once the kitchen is up and running in February.

Mr Farnworth continued: "I've worked in this industry since I was in my teens and I'm passionate about wines and wanted to share that with the people of Barrowford.

"We had an unofficial trial opening over the New Year and received some really positive feedback and I've had a lot of support from family and friends in setting Will's up.

"The bar has had over 1,300 likes on Facebook already and we are hoping to complement the fantastic range of bars and pubs in Barrowford."

Will's has created 10 new jobs for people in the area and will open from 3pm on Wednesday.
