Our increasingly popular takeaway service

‘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.

Thursday afternoons are back!

As more volunteers come forward to help with a shift or two, so we are able to return our opening hours to something close to normal. From Thursday 8th July, Barnaby’s will be open from 2-4, offering yummy coffee and homemade cake.

Come and enjoy our outdoor seating while you wait to collect your little one from the Primary School. We look forward to seeing you all again!

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!

 

Come on in!

As part of our gradual return to full service, this weekend you’ll be able to come on in to Barnaby’s to place your coffee order and choose a yummy cake! Like many other places, we sadly do not have the space to seat anyone indoors within the current Government guidelines, but we’ve got lots of tables outside!

We look forward to seeing you tomorrow.

Cake is back!

As part of our phased approach to re-opening Barnaby’s, cake is back!  We’ve extended our partnership with Bishops Waltham Country Market to supply cake to Barnaby’s every day, starting this weekend.  All the old favourites will be back, and our volunteers look forward to serving you.

When might Barnaby’s return?

Since the Government posted their roadmap for the easing of restrictions, the BBT have been considering how and when Barnaby’s might reopen. In short, we are very much looking forward to 21st June when it is expected that all the legal limits on social contact will be removed. That is the point at which Barnaby’s will be able to safely return to its rightful place as a vital hub for our community.

The Government roadmap proposes a series of steps that lead up to 21st June. Indeed, we could potentially launch a restricted outdoor service as early as 12th April. So as that date approaches, we’ll be able to tell you more about our plans, guided by whatever is required in order to operate as safely and as successfully as possible. Until then, please stay safe.

We remain closed

In order to protect our volunteers and our customers, Barnaby’s will not re-open as planned after Autumn Half Term. This follows the announcement of a nationwide lockdown that will begin on Thursday 5th November.

There is no telling when we’ll be back, but we’ll post details here when we are ready to do so. In the meantime, please keep yourselves and your families safe.

Barnaby’s set to re-open this Saturday

We’ve waited a long time to say this, but we’re back!

At 1000 on Saturday 12th September, our new takeaway service will be launched, alongside a new “seated” service in our extended outdoor area. Both services have been extensively tested within the rules we must all now follow, and our volunteers look forward to serving you.

As you might expect, things will be a little different when you arrive. If you wish to be seated outside on one of our tables of 4,  wait until we can offer you a table. Use the hand sanitiser while you wait. Once seated, we’ll take your order and bring it out to you. Payment will be by contactless only.

Our takeaway service uses a strict one way system, which is clearly marked. Your coffee will be available from the window on the East side of the building.

This is all a bit strange for us too, and it couldn’t be done at all without our amazing volunteers. Please be patient with them and do as they ask. Our intention is to run a Saturday service every week with a restricted menu, to which we will add Thursdays and Fridays in due course.
