The Mossy Café


The Mossy, our community coffee shop and alternative venue for meetings was officially opened on the 30th of August 2015, in celebration of our fortieth anniversary. 

Staffed entirely by our amazing volunteers, we are currently open 10am - 2.00pm on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays.  Private bookings for funerals, parties and other events are available upon request, subject to current governement guidelines .

We provide free hot drinks for those aged 75 and over - so please don't be offended if we ask your age, we are trying to make no-one who is entitled misses out! 



Following the First Ministers speech on Thursday 10th September, the following changes will be implemented with immediate effect.

  • All staff, volunteers and visitors must wear face masks at all times unless you are actively eating and drinking.
  • You must only sit and meet with people from one other household, with a maximum of 6 people seated together.
  • We will continue to provide table service, and ask you not to queue or gather at the counter.
  • We respectfully remind you that the one metre rule for hospitality venues is only when two metres is not possible.
  • We may have less seating available and apologise in advance if we are full when you visit.

From the First Minister's speech 10th September 2020:
"A maximum of 6 people from 2 households will now be permitted to meet together.
To help reduce transmission - but also simplify the rules as much as possible - this new limit will apply both indoors, in houses, in pubs and restaurants, and also outdoors including in private gardens.
There will be some limited exceptions, for example for organised sports and places of worship.
Also, any children under 12 who are part of two households meeting up won’t count towards the limit of 6 people.
I am asking people to abide by these stricter new limits on gatherings immediately.
However, the regulations that will give legal effect to them will come into force on Monday, and more detail will be available on our website.
Let me also re-emphasise that the new limit of six people from two households will apply in restaurants, pubs and beer gardens, as well as in our homes.
We hope that by reducing the risk of transmission in those settings, it will help to keep the sector open.
However, I can confirm that we have decided to implement two additional measures to reduce the risk of transmission in the hospitality sector.
First, we intend to make it mandatory for customers in hospitality premises to wear face coverings whenever they are moving around and not eating or drinking – for example when entering and going to a table, or to the bathroom.
And second, subject to some exemptions, we will also make it mandatory – rather than simply guidance - for staff working in hospitality premises to also wear face coverings."
