Cafe closed for the summer!

Dear friends, community members and customers.

We’ve come to the difficult decision to reduce our opening times further until October 1st. We plan to remain open for events (check out our events tab to see what’s on!) while remaining closed for food and regular service throughout most of the week. We hope to be able to use this time to put our heads together and come up with ways to run the space even better, ready for our reopening on October 1st!

A bit of background if you’re unfamiliar with our story

As some of you may know, we’re a small workers owned cooperative, who managed to first open a couple of years ago on the amazing generosity of those able to put some money into starting this project. Unfortunately, as we’re not a large corporate chain with rich bosses who can just reinvest, we’re in a position where we need to be making enough money month on month to sustain being open – something many small businesses have found challenging over the pandemic.

We hope you all understand this isn’t a decision that we made lightly – and we also don’t want to view it as the end but more a short pause while we recoup!

So we are currently closed except for events, which will be promoted here on our page. We have emailed everyone with online bookings and we are really sorry to those who have plans to visit us soon, but we will be back!

Check out Facebook page for current events and please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you want to use our space!

I hope we can rely on your continued support and we can’t wait to see all your lovely faces again whether that be at events over the coming months or for our grand reopening in October!

Take care and stay safe.
