Rory Maclean author of Berlin: Imagine a City 1st May 6.30pm.

THE TIMES Berlin takes the form of 23 portraits of individuals...the text sings. A compelling piece about the industrialist and Weimar foreign minister Walter Rathenau is full of auguries of the nightmares of the 30s and 40s. THE GUARDIAN Rory MacLean's Berlin: Imagine a History is intelligent, entertaining and ambitious...MacLean has written a great book about Berliners.

Love Coffee

Visit and relax in our Coffee Shop.

After getting completely wired trying umpteen blends of coffee we are  pleased to offer a delicious Ethiopian fair trade blend which is quite frankly “delicious”. We also serve a range of quality teas and Fentimans cold drinks, the traditional lemonade is particularly good.

For something to nibble on with coffee we are trialing the legendary and local Moores Biscuits, let us know what you think.
