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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
As per previous years, Barnaby’s will be closed for period of the Autumn Half Term holiday. We hope you all have a lovely time.
We hope to be back with our takeaway service and outdoor seated service soon after. Details will be confirmed nearer the time. We look forward to see you all then.
Following successful trials of our takeaway service, we are now ready to extend this service to Thursdays & Fridays. This will be launched on Thursday 8th October. Our hours are therefore as follows:
Takeaway service available from 2pm to 4pm
Takeaway service available from 9am to 11am
Takeaway & outdoor seated services available from 10am to midday
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.
