There’ll be a welcome new look for a disused Beverley building this spring.
The Agriculture House has been empty for several years since it ceased to be the town’s HQ for the NFU.
But partners Sham Alom, Mohammed Sayfuzaman and Sarah Day will breathe new life into the property in 2015 when they open their Indian restaurant, Rumi’s.
They told HU17.net:
“We are really looking forward to opening our restaurant within the walls of this well-known building – the feedback we have had from the public has been very positive.
“The old building is in need of a facelift and to see it being modernised and brought into the 21st century is exciting.”
Owning a restaurant is a dream come true for Sham and brother-in-law Mohammed, and along with local girl Sarah, a year’s hard work will soon see their dream become reality.
Rumi’s will serve Bangali and Indian cuisine, and the new owners aim to mix traditional fayre with some more unusual regional dishes.
They continued: “Rumi’s may be a new venture, but the restaurant trade itself certainly isn’t new to any of us.
“With a combined experience of over 50 years, we truly believe we have brought the best of our skills together to deliver an excellent dining experience to our customers.
“Our menu will be a mix of old and new. We want to keep some of the old faithfuls that people have come to love, whilst introducing recipes usually omitted from the traditional menu offerings.”
The new venture puts to an end speculation about Agriculture House’s future.
It had been earmarked as a possible location for Beverley’s first Wetherspoons, but now the building will get a much needed facelift by the new owners and become a welcome addition to the Beverley restaurant scene.
