Our new extended outdoor seating service

Meet ‘Aurora’ and friends this Saturday

On Saturday 18th June, we’ll be hosting a number of trainee dogs from Hounds For Heroes as part of our Charity Awareness Scheme. Come and meet ‘Aurora’ and her handler John Branson. She is a 12-month old golden retriever in training for Hounds For Heroes. In the next year, she will join a higher training program ahead of becoming an assistant dog.  John will be able to tell you the amazing things that these dogs are capable of and how they are trained.

Half of Barnaby’s takings on Saturday will be added to your donations, and sent to Hounds For Heroes. Please come and give them your support.

Groundworks outside Barnaby’s

As some of you know, we recently received Planning Permission for our new all-weather awning. The groundworks started on Thursday 5th May, and will take two weeks to complete. While this is going on, not all our outdoor seating at the front will be available, but there’s plenty round the side where we have recently added more tables!

Classic Cars season kicks off

Our Classic Car Summer kicks off this weekend, with a welcome return to a collection of stunning vehicles from private collectors around the Meon Valley.

PRE-1990 CARS WELCOME
NO NEED TO REGISTER – JUST TURN UP
DOORS OPEN 1000 to 1230

With up to 50 cars expected at each event, we’ll be in the main car park opposite Barnaby’s. If you are attending, you may arrive any time from 0945, when a marshal will show you to a space where you can display your car. The event will be supported by Barnaby’s “popup” coffee shop, serving coffee, tea and yummy homemade cakes made by our friends at Bishops Waltham Country Market. Barnaby’s will nominate  a charity on the day, and all our proceeds will go to that charity.

Special hours confirmed for Christmas Week

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.

 

Back to normal from Saturday 4th September

Without our wonderful volunteers, Barnaby’s can not function. As more and more of you come back to  help with a shift or two, so we are now able to return to full pre-pandemic opening hours. Therefore, from Saturday 4th September, Barnaby’s will be open:

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

If you would like to volunteer, even if only for an hour or two here and there, please head to barnabys.coffee/volunteer so we can get in touch! For those who already have a login, September shifts are now available on ShiftController.

‘House rules’ from 19th July

The easing of restrictions in the UK from today allows us to finally open up our indoor seating – the first time in well over a year!  In a similar vein to other hospitality venues, we are going to retain some simple ‘house rules’ in order to keep everyone as safe as we can.

  • Please wear a mask (unless you have an exemption)
  • Please use the hand sanitiser as you enter
  • Check in using the NHS QR code, or complete the Track & Trace form by the door
  • Once seated, send an emissary to the till to place your order
  • Sit back & relax. We’ll bring your order to you, even if you are outside

Thank you. Together, we will keep Barnaby’s safe.

Weekday opening returns

We’ve been busy recently, training new volunteers and modifying our procedures to ensure we can serve you yummy coffee and cake in these challenging times.

Now we’re ready to return to weekday opening, kicking off with Fridays from 9am to midday. We’ve got lots of new things to see at Barnaby’s, including some delightful new flower displays outside, courtesy of our very own Berty Ferrone. Grazie Berty!
