Swanmore Primary School is one of the best in the area. We are right across the road, and are everso popular before & after school dropoff time!

When might Barnaby’s re-open?

As there are now some restaurants, pubs and coffee shops opening up, albeit on very restricted terms, we are naturally looking at how Barnaby’s may do the same. In assessing this, our priority has been the safety of our fabulous volunteers and loyal customers, whilst also respecting the guidelines we operate under and the experiences of similar community projects such as ours.

Having given this some considerable thought, it is currently the intention of the BBT to re-open Barnaby’s in the first week of September. We hope that, by then, the current guidelines may have relaxed enough to allow us to deliver the full Barnaby”s experience. We know this news may be disappointing to some. That includes us, as we want to be open too! However, the size of our kitchen and the need to create a suitable one-way system make effective social distancing very challenging.

Our confirmed plans will be announced closer to the time, both here and on Facebook. We very much look forward to sharing them with you all.

We are closed

Much as we would prefer to be able to support our community by remaining open, there are a number of challenges and risks associated with keeping our volunteers and customers virus-free. As such, we have opted to close Barnaby’s until further notice. We promise to be back just as soon as we feel it is safe to do so. This may take several weeks, but we will keep you posted here and on our Facebook page.

Meanwhile, we’d like to thank all the people who have done so much to help us remain open thus far. Stay safe everyone.
