Coronavirus: Mainstreet Plan

Dear Customers,

It’s a strange time for all of us, but, for the moment, we are staying open, and plan to make lots of adjustments to help better serve our lovely customers and ensure a safe working environment for our staff.

We all want to survive this crisis, but if we are going to be here in a few months time, we need your support.  In our business, cashflow is king, so, while we don’t have the power of the online giants, we really want to continue serving our community.Let’s get through this together.

We offer take away food and drinks from the café and the deli. Please don’t bring your Keep Cups for now, our takeaway cups are fully compostable. Do ring ahead and we can have your order ready for collection. Let us know if you are socially isolating and we’ll do our best to deliver to your door.


Our café remains open for now, however, we are adjusting the space, and removing some tables to help improve social distancing.


We would be delighted to supply orders by post – anything from books to coffee. People still need birthday presents, and let’s not forget Mother’s Day is this weekend. We can help with all these dilemmas from the very practical (store cupboard essentials) to life necessary small luxuries, please check our social media and website for suggestions.

Don’t forget we offer a Book Subscription service – the perfect way to keep going through the coming weeks and months.

Our deli is an excellent source of store cupboard essentials and those very necessary comfort treats (takeaway, by post or in-store).


Please consider forward planning with our Gift Vouchers – they can be used in any part of the business and be for any amount. These can also be posted out of course, very easily.


We will be offering home deliveries as much as possible, if you are self isolating, please get in touch.
