About the employer

Founded by Steve Morris and Sarah Marshall, a Low Fell couple with a passion for good food, Ellison’s is a unique and diverse location for food lovers, offering a deli service, coffee shop and intimate dining experience. After buying a run down building on the corner of Kells Lane and Dryden Road, The Dotty House was created, a wonderful shop with quirky products in the heart of Low Fell. Realising the potential of the building, the idea of Ellison’s was born. The initial idea was to create a coffee shop but as time went on Steve and Sarah realised that a deli and bistro would work well in this increasingly buzzing area in Low Fell. Using the history of the building, originally built by Lord Ellison, on a street that in 1875 was called Ellison Road, Sarah and Steve decided that the most fitting name for the new business was Ellison’s. The team at Ellison’s take great pride in their work and what has been and soon will be created at this lovely bistro.
