"We moved to Chapel Allerton in 2012 and whilst there were plenty of fantastic eateries in the vicinity, I always felt that there was a space for something that offered the variety of a greasy spoon but with healthy options too. I'd worked in the food industry for a number of years, so was able to offer quality ingredients at a fair price.
We called it Ned's Cafe after our son Ned. Figuring he was likely to grow up in and around Chapel Allerton, we wanted to give him something to be proud of. In time we may see an extension of the Ned's brand, such as Ned's Brasserie or Ned's Bar. We will hope by then our Ned just thinks it's a happy coincidence."
