Sir George formally opened Coffee Carousel at Weyhill Fairground, in one of the last units to be let by Penton Grafton Parish Council, who have restored the walls and buildings.
"Denise's coffee shop will complement the craft shops that are successfully trading in the Fairground. Some have workshops, and their students will need somewhere to eat; and of course many of their customers will welcome some quality refreshment on the site.
There will also be some passing traffic from the Ludgershall Road, and residents of Weyhill village will also use the shop."
The shop has been trading for a few weeks and the proprietor, Denise Wynell-Mayow, said she was pleased with the way the business was growing.
