Coffee. Not coffee.

We are passionate about our coffee, buying from long-established roasters James Gourmet who work with farmers at above Fairtrade prices. There’s also an alternative guest coffee to try. Find out more here.

Not a coffee drinker? We have a wide range of teas and herbal teas our own hot chocolate (no junk, and vegan), turmeric latte, homemade chai, a high quality ceremonial-grade matcha, and lower-sugar soft drinks including Kombucha.

Wine, beer and cider also available.


Try some different cakes such as chocolate almond, our no-added-sugar seeded carrot, apple and banana, or our mixed berry, beetroot and polenta cake. Or perhaps a wedge of our chocolate brownie or the Kurdish apple cake, a crumbly apple square with cinnamon and raisins. We make most cakes in-house and supplement them with local suppliers such as Jack Bakes, who you’ll find at Stroud Farmers’ Market.

We always endeavour to have gluten-free and vegan choices available.

Having a celebration or looking for a present? Our cakes are available to buy whole – please email us in advance.
