Another Worcester business has told customers to stop bringing in their own food. 

Richard Fletcher, owner and manager of Cheeky Monkeys on Orchard St, Cherry Orchard, took to social media to issue a 'polite reminder' to parents who are opting to bring in fast food and supermarket multipacks instead of using the café. 

In the last week alone, he says McDonald's, Costa coffee and 'hundreds' of share packs of crisps and drinks have been brought in. 

Mr Fletcher is the second Worcester business owner to hit out at customers supplying their own snacks. 

Last week, staff at Auntie Em’s Tea and Toy Emporium, in the City Arcade on The Shambles, slammed people for bringing in their own food. 

The café’s stance was widely supported by readers on the Worcester News website and Facebook page. 

Mr Fletcher admitted that while he could "never match" the prices of "supermarkets or B&M multi buys", he does try to keep the prices as competitive as he possibly can. 

Writing on Facebook, he said: "Unfortunately no food or drink is to be brought in from outside the play centre. 

"I try and keep the prices in our cafe as competitive as I possibly can, but this will never match supermarkets or B&M multi buys. 

"This week alone we have had Costa coffee, McDonald's, homemade coffee/tea, packed lunches, and hundreds of multi pack drinks, crisps and bottles of squash being brought in. 

"We do offer free water to any thirsty children with no charge and as much as they need. 

"I understand that times are tough and that everyone needs to watch the pennies but unfortunately we are also in that same position. 

"Thank you all for understanding and we will continue to give the best service possible, which you have come to expect."
