Barnaby’s will go a bit Scottish next week, in support of the mighty wordsmith Rabbie Burns. Your favourite coffee will come with a yummy (and free) piece of delicious Scottish shortbread!
Born in 1759, Burns is widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland – a fact celebrated on the date of his birthday – 25th January. We’ll be dishing out the shortbread on Tuesday and Wednesday.
A Big Barnaby’s Shout Out goes to anyone wondering whether the New Year might be the time to take on something new and exciting. Volunteering is a wonderful way to meet people, learn a new skill, support your community, or fill a little spare time.
If you think that might be you, we’d love to meet. Find out more at https://barnabys.coffee/volunteer.
Looking for that easy-to-wrap stocking filler for the coffee lover in your life? Excellent news, because Barnaby’s re-useable & collapsible coffee cups are now in stock! Choose from green or black for just £10.
Note that during Christmas week Barnaby’s is open on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 10-12.
Many of you have been enjoying Barnaby’s in the run-up to Christmas – either to meet up with friends for the first time in a while, or to sit with your laptop and research potential present ideas, or to give your kids that special end-of-term treat. To help support this need, Barnaby’s will have special opening hours during Christmas Week:
- Monday 20th December 10am to noon
- Tuesday 21st December 10am to noon
- Wednesday 22nd December 10am to noon
Barnaby’s will be back on Tuesday 4th January 2022.
From today and right through to the Wednesday before Christmas, you’ll receive a free mince pie with every hot drink at Barnaby’s!
For some reason, we think this will be quite popular…
Our December offer is a yummy homemade gingerbread man and a delicious gingerbread latte for just £3! It’s a classic combination that’s well worth a try, particularly on those cold wet days.
Bring a friend and try one each!

It was a pleasure to be able to host Rev Michael Smith and his team at Barnaby’s yesterday (Thursday 11th November). A couple of years ago, we assisted Michael in the set-up of a community coffee shop in Hatch Warren near Basingstoke – Michaels parish at the time.
Michael was back at Barnaby’s for some advice on a similar venture he is setting up at his new parish in Bournemouth. Good luck Michael!
This Saturday and all next week, we will be championing the work of the Royal British Legion. It has particular resonance this year, as it marks the 100th Anniversary of the RBL. There will be lots of slides on the big screen in Barnaby’s recognising the events of Armistice Day, the daily Act of Remembrance at the Menin Gate in Ypres, and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in London. As always with our Charity Awareness Days, half of Saturday takings will be given to the RBL.
Please head to barnabys.coffee/charityawarenessscheme to find out more about our Charity Awareness Days and to put forward a charity of your choice that we could support as part of the scheme.
