Speaking to HU17.net she said;
“It’s a huge shame that Riva has shut, the staff, were always friendly the food was always good, and the atmosphere was always great sat inside or out.”
“It really is such a shame an independent business has gone from Flemingate, and the town just wished we could support our local businesses more.”
Opened in May 2106, Riva Lounge and Cafe Bar aimed to bring something different to Beverley by creating the look and feel of an authentic European lounge bar and café bar.
Investing more than £500,000 n the concept, in the design, fixtures and fittings, Riva Lounge created 24 full and part-time jobs when it opened.
Riva Lounge are the second business to close their doors since the multi-million pound development Flemingate was opened a little over two years ago.
Social media posts with regard to the closure of the business have in the main ones of regret that Riva has ceased trading with many people offering words of support to the owners and staff that have lost their jobs.
Concerns have in recent months been voiced in Beverley over the number of food-based business’s trading in the Market Town.
