Hasan and Linzi took over the reigns of Treats in 2017. The event was truly memorable for the married couple, as 7 years previous it was a figment of their imagination.

The dream and inspiration of owning a family run eatery was conjured whilst the couple lived in the ancient city of Istanbul and frequented the vast array of beautiful atmospheric cafes and tea houses. On returning to live permanently in the UK in 2013, they decided it was time to turn their dreams into reality. Hasan’s 15 plus years of expertise working in the hospitality industry would ensure the success of acquiring the lease for Treats. On 1st November 2017 they accomplished just part of their plan……

The full realization of their dreams were achieved with the birth of their baby boys, Miran and Jiyan. The Gergin Family could now say they had achieved their dream of owning a family run business.

The Gergin family pride themselves on supporting local business and quality food at good prices. The produced sourced is always local and fresh, helping not only local business but also the environment. The daily running of the business is conducted by Andrew, who is Linzi’s brother. Hasan can often be found in the kitchen helping out, whilst Linzi works behind the scenes in her spare time after being mummy to the couples two young boys.
