Barnaby’s will go a bit Scottish this 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.
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…
CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER FORECAST

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.

Originally built in Victorian times as the Old School Room, Barnaby’s had a rich history in education until the Primary School was built across the road. After a long period of little use by the village or the church, the building was completely refurbished in 2014, and Barnaby’s opened for business in October that year.
HAPPY 7TH BIRTHDAY BARNABY’S!
Thank you to all of you who help to make our community hub such a great success – volunteers, suppliers and customers. You are all wonderful!

Our Classic Cars @ Barnaby’s series returned last Saturday, with some 50 cars on display outside Barnaby’s. Many of the cars that came were new to us, and we were delighted to see them all. They range from a stunning Model “T” Ford through to an immaculate 1989 Sierra Cosworth. Images from the day are now available on facebook.com/swanmorecoffee.
Given the 100-or-so people that came on the day, a number of you experienced delays in getting your coffee. We are sorry. For our next Classic Cars @ Barnaby’s event on Saturday 23rd October, our “popup” coffee shop will be available next to the display in order to ensure you are properly looked after.
