Meet the Team

Judith Glue and David Spence


Judith and David married in 2003 and have had a working partnership since 2005 when David joined the company previously established by Judith when she was just 18 years old.

In 2018 they formed The Old Storehouse Ltd which runs "Judith Glue and The Real Food Cafe" the "Judith Glue Shop in Inverness" along with their latest venture "The Storehouse Restaurant with Rooms". They both live a stones throw away from The Storehouse and have both been actively hands on with the project since it started on a daily basis.

As a local Orkney designer Judith has chosen and designed the interior and David who is a trained quantity surveyor has lead much of the renovations.

They have long talked about owning a hotel and restaurant and were lucky enough to be able to purchase this historic B Listed former store from George Leonard in 2011 and have now brought their dreams into reality and hope that they have created a business that is truly an asset to Kirkwall's town centre.
