Andy's Community Cafe

Our friendly community cafe Andy's is normally open four days per week: Mondays to Thursdays, 10am-2.30pm during school terms. We're closed for Christmas and will reopen as soon as the latest COVID restrictions are lifted. 

When we reopen we'll have all precautions in place to keep everyone safe, and masks must be worn except when seated. As we're an indoor venue you may be able to visit only with your bubble while we remain under COVID restrictions. We may have a slightly reduced menu in operation, but all our sandwiches, soup, cakes, tea, coffee and soft drinks will still be available - and just as yummy as they ever were!

Please come and support us when we reopen - we can't wait to serve you again!

Paid in advance

If you'd like a free coffee or meal, just take a button from the pot and hand it to the cashier. It means someone has already bought it for you!

If you'd like to pay for a needy future customer, please ask our staff about donating.

Everyone is welcome at Andy's Community Cafe!


We serve great barista coffees, a selection of teas, scrummy cakes and snacks, plus a  pay-as-you-feel  menu where you pay what you can afford - no questions asked! Our clever cooks use food from supermarkets that would otherwise go to waste to offer daily pay-as-you-go specials. 

So if you're feeling the pinch this week you can still enjoy a delicious hot lunch! 


Andy's is proud to offer:

  • A toddler-friendly space with a train-track, books and toys

  • Children's toilet with baby-change facilities

  • Power and charging points for phones and laptops

  • Free Wi-Fi

  • Comfy sofas or tables to work from

  • A warm welcome!

The 'meeting place'


You’ll meet all ages at Andy's: mums and toddlers, the elderly and many working people who socialise with colleagues or discuss business.

It’s a handy place to go when after shopping, or after an appointment at the Health Centre next door, or while you're waiting for a prescription from Boot's Pharmacy.

People of all ages come regularly to meet friends.  For others it’s a social lifeline, because they know they can arrive without knowing anyone, receive a friendly welcome, chat to our volunteers and maybe make new friends.


One regular customer said the most important thing to him is the welcome he always gets.  “The food is delicious and good value, but it’s the people working here who make it special,” he said.

A range of great coffees


You’ll find your favourite coffee: cappuccino, mocha, latte and regular coffees using freshly ground ingredients from quality suppliers. It's been said we have the best cups of coffee in town – but we don’t charge ‘town centre’ prices!

Rachel J says:


"I love this cafe! It's about the only place I can go locally with my baby twins and 4 year old for a drink and/or food and feel welcome despite the mess and noise we sometimes (almost always) bring with us!

"The ladies and gents who volunteer here are so lovely and always have time for a chat, and are only too happy to entertain or cuddle one baby while I take the other for a nappy change.

"The food is yummy and the coffee is excellent. The children's area is brilliant, with Duplo, dolls house and a train table, and having a children's toilet right next to it is such a lifesaver - it was the only place we dared venture to in the early days of toilet training.

"We come most weeks and my daughter loves it so much, she says she wants to work here when she grows up!"

Thanks Rachel for your kind comments!
