Birthday and Jubilee!

Birthday and Jubilee! Wrote the title then immediately googled “what is a jubilee”… turns out it’s an anniversary of an event usually denoting the 25th, 40th, 50th etc anniversary and in the case of Queen Lizzie… 70th! We had our 5th STR birthday recently, not quite the same length of time, but a significant milestone for us none the less. We celebrated as we always do with cake! The switched up bank holidays have thrown us a bit but we’ve decided to close for both of them so we can have some time off to celebrate Spring. So that’s both...

Important Dates For April.

Important Dates for April. Hello! It’s been a long time since we did an update. It’s been a head in the sand, let’s get through winter situation. But now it is Spring!! We’re back with some important things to let you know. Our kitchen is closed on the 11th and 12th of April. Drinks, cakes and pastries are still available. We’re getting a cooling system fitted which will help us get through these increasingly hot and long summers we seem to be having. Not only will this make the temperature a lot more pleasant for you, the customer, but it’ll...

Winter Break.

Winter Break.

Winter Break. We choose to close the café over Christmas and New Year every year. We have done this since we opened in 2017 and it has become so important to us that all of the staff and the café itself gets this break, at the same time. A full closure / reset. We have even started having a summer break too, during our quietest time in August. It’s been a tough year, tougher than 2020 perhaps? Physically harder at least, getting back into the working routine not to mention staff shortages, supply issues (packaging and carbonated drinks where are...

Summer Holiday.

Summer Holiday. Hello Everyone! We hope you are all ok, enjoying some warmer weather in between the rain showers. We just wanted to let you know that we have decided to close the café for a week from Monday the 2nd of August to Sunday the 8th. Re-opening again on Monday the 9th. It’s not an easy decision to close the café for a week, especially as things are just starting to open up again, but we think it’s the best thing to do for us right now. It’s helping us manage staff holidays ensuring everyone gets a proper break...

Dine-in Again Again.

Dine-in Again Again.

Dine-in Again Again. Indoor hospitality is open again (again) and the timing is perfect because this weather sucks. Hailstones and torrential rain one minute and blue skies the next. Hardly the kind of weather conducive to eating outdoors and the kind of weather which has probably been a nightmare for those with outdoor space to plan for… how many staff to have on, how much food to order? Etc. Etc. Anyway, it’s been wonderful having people sat inside again. So lovely to be serving people with food presented how it’s supposed to be, not shoved in a cardboard box. Little...
