The “Training Ground” may sound like just the place for Olympic champion – but this particular “training ground” – being opened today by record-breaking swimming star Rebecca Adlington – is actually Penarth’s latest coffee bar.
Rebecca is a close friend of fellow-Olympic swimmer and Penarth resident Tom Haffield and also of Simon Baston – the boss of local development company Loftco – who has bought and renovated the British Legion building in Station Approach, Penarth as a state-of-the-art office complex.
Creatively squeezed into what was once a mere ground-floor cupboard between the entrance to the new offices and “The Bottle Shop” is – the “Training Ground“ coffee bar .
Just a few yards from Penarth Station the new coffee bar is ideally located to serve the hundreds of rail passengers who pass by every day.
The Training Ground coffee bar opened for business on Monday and has been an instant success with rail commuters and local shoppers . It’s open Mondays to Saturdays inclusive from 07:00 until about 13:00 .
