Barnaby’s is a community coffee shop set next to St.Barnabas Church in the beautiful village of Swanmore. Originally built in Victorian times as the Old School Room, it had a rich history in education until the Primary School was built across the road. After a long period of little use by the village or the church, the building was completely refurbished in 2014 by a team of volunteers, and Barnaby’s opened in October that year. Images from Barnaby’s history hang on its walls today.

Barnaby’s is a vibrant hub for the Meon Valley, providing a comfortable place to relax, meet friends and chat. Every year, we put a huge amount of money back in to the community, and you can click here to see the local causes we supported recently.

Because Barnaby’s is run entirely by volunteers, you’ll always get a lovely welcome! Our opening times are:

Tuesday 2pm to 4.30pm
Wednesday 2pm to 4.30pm
Thursday 9am to midday
2pm to 4.30pm
Friday 9am to midday
2pm to 4.30pm
Saturday 10am to 1pm

Opening times may vary depending on availability of volunteers and seasonal schedules. Sorry – no dogs allowed (except guide dogs)
