The Parr’s Bank is being lovingly restored by local husband and wife team Yaad (33) and Pavan (30) who bought the Grade II listed building early 2020. The former bank had been sitting empty for 8 years and was in a complete state of disrepair. However the pair saw beyond this and had the vision of creating a Boutique Hotel aimed for business travel and renting out the ground floor space.
When Covid hit a month later many people offered Yaad & Pavan their condolences for buying a building which required so much work in such uncertain times. The young couple realised their plans may have to be flexible so the hotel went on the back burner and Counter’s Coffee was born in April 2021.
Yaad coming from a Project Management background re-invented himself as a Barista & Pavan from a Property background became a Brunch Chef. Learning a whole new world of food and beverage, they combined their Indian Heritage and love of fine local ingredients and created a menu unique to Cheshire.
Many customers would come for a Coffee and sneak into the ornate Banking Hall and Pavan & Yaad soon realised they would be doing the building a disservice by not making the Banking Hall accessible to the general public.
