One of our core aims is to reduce social isolation. This is made possible by offering a welcoming and friendly space to eat good food and strike up conversations with others in the cafe.
The cafe gets regular deliveries from Fare Share a charity which saves food that would otherwise go to landfill. We are passionate about reducing food waste, and actively work to make connections with local businesses to minimise the amount of food wasted.
We are in a position to provide good food to people who might otherwise be unable to afford it. With hot meals ready to eat every day, are affordable prices and by enabling the purchase of food in our thrifty shop.
We offer fresh fruits & vegetables, frozen and chilled foods, as well as 'storecupboard' food from tins of beans, to packets of rice and pasta.

We offer volunteering opportunities to suit many interests. From cooks, to gardeners, friendly faces in the cafe space, to shelf staking extraordinaires! Something always needs cleaning, re-organising, or collecting from local businesses.
Liking our Facebook page and sharing our posts also helps us to get the word out about what we do.
The cafe always offers a three course meal for £3. This includes a starter, a main, and a dessert.
We are also lucky to be sponsored by Starbucks as one of their Community Cafes, and so we are able to offer a hot drink for just £1.
All the food on our shelves is fairly priced at a huge reduction from their retail suggestion. We try to keep our shelves, fridges, and freezer filled with bargains.
