Room to relax and be refreshed

Welcome to the Cafe at the New Room!

Relax with a comforting drink or a fortifying snack from our cafe.

Experience our famous chocolate brownies (as sampled by HRH The Duke of Gloucester!), delicious shortbread and homemade bread pudding.  Savour a cup of our Grumpy Mule coffee and feel your mood improve!

Cafe manager Ewa and her team offer a delicious range of drinks, cakes and light lunches as well as afternoon teas (pre-book only) and daily specials. The café caters for vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free diets, and meat is locally sourced from MJ Dalton’s butchers on Gloucester Road.

To pre-book your afternoon tea, email (£5 deposit pp required).

We honour John Wesley's legacy with a commitment to using Fairtrade and organic coffee, tea and other items.  We are proud winners of the Fairtrade Gold award for the last two years. Ewa is committed to using local firms and suppliers.

Most of the food sold in the 50-seater café is produced in-house, with the exception of the gluten-free range, plus the bread, which is provided by Hobbs House Bakery.

There's Room for you to relax in the indoor courtyard, which is protected from the elements by a glass roof.

We can't wait for you to join us, there's Room for Everyone!
