The store has created 20 jobs and has opened today.

Permission to build the outlet - which will be next to McDonald's and near Sainsbury's - was given the green light by council chiefs last July.

It includes two electric vehicle charging points, bicycle parking and will offer Too Good To Go - an app connecting customers to restaurants and stores that have unsold food surplus.

Elizabeth Bone, district manager for Cobra Coffee, said: "We are incredibly pleased to be able to offer new jobs to people in the local area and look forward to welcoming the local community."

It will be open from 6.30am to 7pm Monday to Friday, 7am-7pm on Saturdays and 8am to 6pm on Sundays.
