Coffee Corner at Roots

A great place to meet or watch the world go by (BC - Before Coronavirus!)

What started as a corner of the shop with the vision of being somewhere that people feel safe on their own or in a big group of friends or family, and can have one cup of tea or a lunch fit for a king, it doesn't matter to us as long as you are happy.

As time went on our little corner expanded and coffee corner is now fully established as part of the shop.  We were told by many along the way to make it bigger, expand into another barn, but it is not about that, bigger is not always best, if there is one person in or not a spare seat in the house, being part of the shop and part of the Roots family is what matters.  We are farmers, a good brew can fix the most difficult situation so why not sit back and enjoy on the farm with us, you could always go all out and treat yourself to one of Jane's scones or Roots crunch.


In line with recent government guidelines the coffee shop closed temporarily at the end of March, however we are doing all we can to come up with a plan to make sure that when coffee shops and meeting places are able to open we will be ready to go, in line with social distancing guidelines and with the safety of our staff and customers at the forefront of all we do.  We miss you all so much, but won't risk anyone's safety for the sake of a latte.

Since the recent announcement of coffee shops being able to open and a read of the extensive guidelines we have made the decision not to open the coffee shop indoors again until it becomes viable in the space we have and more importantly so everyone can enjoy safely and shop safely at the same time.  We have however opened The Hatch, so you can still get a taste of Roots to take away or eat outside the shop - come on Mr Sunshine, please keep that hat on!!  Menu updates are available on our Facebook Page
