Veeno Wine Cafe is set to open its 19th UK branch in the terrace area of Castle Mall in the city.

The cafe serves Sicilian wines alongside charcuterie, bruschetta and paninis served in traditional foccacia.

There is also a range of authentic desserts including gelato, tiramisu and torta capriccio which is a chocolate cake covered in hazelnuts.

From 12pm to 6pm every day, Italian afternoon tea is available with a selection of focaccia, meats and cheeses, chocolate cake, lemon cake and scones with mascarpone and strawberry jam with tea, coffee and a glass of prosecco.
