VIDEO: Rest and be thankful with free drink at Swinton cafe

South Yorkshire Times readers can enjoy a mug of tea or coffee - all absolutely free.

We have teamed up with The Rest & be Thankful in Rowms Lane, Swinton to give our loyal readers a fantastic treat for free as part of our latest Owt Fer Nowt offer.

All you have to do is cut out the voucher in the July 17 edition of the South Yorkshire Times and present it at The Rest & be Thankful on Rowms Lane from Thursday, July 17, to Wednesday, July 23, to claim your free cup of tea, worth 80p, or coffee, worth £1.

New owners Sarah Butler and Chris Bown, of Mexborough, only took over six weeks ago, but business is booming already.

Sarah said: “Things are going well, we just want to get the word out here that we are here.

“We do hot and cold sandwiches, plus teas, coffee and soft drinks.

“We are just trying to get the word out that we offer good quality food and drink to get more people in through the door.

“This is a great offer. It doesn’t cost us anything and we get some great publicity. I’d urge your readers to come in and take us up on the offer.”

The cafe is open from 8am to 2pm, Monday to Saturday.

Meanwhile, other business owners who have teamed up with us for the Owt Fer Nowt offer have told how the scheme has been a success.

Phil Toone, who gave away dog chews from his Mexborough market stall, said: “I had about 30 people take up the offer. It is a good campaign, it gets new customers into the business along with existing ones aswell.”

Flower stall owner Bev Taylor added: “Any sort of free promotion is worth doing, especially when businesses and markets are trying to get more trade in at times like this.”

Kyle Roberts, 27, of the Coffee Pot Cafe in Mexborough, said: “This is a great freebie offer for your readers.”
