COVID-19 Operating Statement

To our valued customers and followers,

It is with great excitement that we can announce we will be re-opening our doors on Saturday 4th July. Of course, things won't be like they used to, and we have removed the café's seating area and placed strict limits on capacity for everyone's safety.

For now, we will be open:

11am-4pm Friday
10am-4pm Saturday
12pm-4pm Sunday

Capacity is limited as follows:

We are limited to 1 person (or 2 from the same household) in the back room at any time and 2 people in the front – 1 on each side of the shop. Pop your head in and we can tell you what capacity is at.

If you have to queue, please do be mindful of both our neighbours’ close door and other neighbouring businesses in the immediate vicinity. It may be wise to come back later.

The floor is marked at 1 metre intervals, please be mindful to leave 2 of them between yourself and others.

We have hand sanitiser, paper towels and PVC gloves at the front door for you to use on your way in and out, and again at the entrance to the back room. Record shopping is a tactile thing, so please clean your hands before and after flicking through the bins.

Everything from the café is takeaway only, and we are still accepting your reusable cups. In fact, we actively encourage this and still offer 20p off your drink for bringing one! Please do try and have these empty and clean wherever possible.

We would prefer it if you made payments by card/contactless,  but will still be accepting cash if this isn’t possible.

As of 10th July, you will be required by law to wear a face covering in the shop, though you are welcome to wear one before this.

We continue to have our whole catalogue available to purchase online at our website and on top of regular postage options we offer a ‘Buyer Collects’ from the shop or also “free local delivery” option with around 2 drops a week.

We look forward to welcoming you back into the shop in a responsible way - trust us, we have missed you! But if at any point we feel overwhelmed or too busy to operate in a safe and responsible manner, please understand if we close early or hold the queue for a while whilst we clean and reset the place.
