We found an old pub - The Crown in Nuffield, Oxfordshire - who's over 300 years old, Grade 2 listed and, after laying empty for 8 years, was in a pretty sorry state. So, in the middle of a global pandemic, we decided to bring her back to life, re-imagined as The Maker Space.
And now she's home to our newly opened cafe & garden, serving hot and cold drinks, amazing cakes, snacks, wine, beer, prosecco and the odd G&T. We've now added fabulous breakfast & lunch menus too.
We've converted the adjoining barn space into our amazing new craft workroom where we'll be holding classes and selling supplies and handmade gifts - opening very soon. Upstairs, we'll have an event space perfect for kids birthday parties, private events and workshops.
She's going to make a great venue for the creative hub we hope to create here - crafts, cake, coffee and the odd craft beer or two.
