The Old Firestation Coffee Shop
Actually, this seems to be the basic need of the human heart in nearly every great crisis.... a good hot cup of coffee.
The coffee shop serves excellent coffee, teas, drinking chocolate and offers a range of fine foods.
It opened in May 2007 to compliment the Old Fire station Chocolate Shop and was designed to offer comfort and accessibility providing the ideal environment to meet and relax. We supply an array of newspapers and magazines for the enjoyment of our customers (and pictures, crayons and toys for the children!)
We offer a range of light food including scones, cakes, sandwiches, panini, baked potatoes and soup.
The scones, sandwiches and soup are freshly made by us. Our purchasing policy is to support local businesses as much as we can and we therefore use locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. The fresh cakes and ice cream are made by local businesses.
"Man does not live by coffee alone. Have a Danish"
Through the double doors at the far end of the coffee shop is a large outside area with seating and tables. The courtyard is to the west of the Jubilee Building (The Old Fire station Chocolate Shop) and therefore catches the afternoon sun. It is well away from the High Street traffic, noise and dust.
Beyond the outside area is the churchyard and St. Helens Church. For the comfort and safety of customers and children we do not permit smoking in the courtyard.
