The Refinery

The Refinery: Historic building offering great coffee and food, collectibles for sale, vinyl on the turntable.


We use free range eggs and bacon, local produce where possible and organic milk in our coffees. Baking is all made on the premises from scratch; no premixes, no substitutes, new treats are being added all the time. The large, light filled space, which manages to be cosy and welcoming; armchairs and a roaring fire in the winter and rustic outdoor tables and ivy covered walls in the summer. Read a book over coffee or browse the huge collection of vinyl and put on a song or two.
