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'll soon be adding breakfast & lunch menus - so watch this space.
We're still busy converting the adjoining barn space into our craft workroom where we'll be holding classes and selling supplies and handmade gifts. 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.
