The Mendi’s website explains the restaurant has been owned by the Jones family since 1977.
It says: “Over the years, Mendi’s has worked hard to build a reputation for quality and value for money...
“[It] has become the place to go for a great night out in a relaxed environment.”
Mendi’s is probably best known as being a popular venue for private parties and functions, offering entertainment usually in the form of a D.J. and disco.
It has also catered for weddings and other special occasions.
The website explains it has hosted meetings for various community organisations within the town, including Wisbech Rotary Club, the Lions, Probus, the Archaeology Society and Red Hatters.
