So what is under The Buttercup trap door?

A whole new world hidden under The Buttercup trap doors

All has been revealed! As many of our lovely customers know, we’ve been busy working on opening up a new space with more tables here at The Buttercup Cafe. Well, at last, we have opened the trap door and our new downstairs room is open.

In the unlikely event of a rainy day during the summer (!) or when the outdoor courtyard tables are full, we now have two cosy sofas and plenty more tables downstairs. We’ll be adding more delights to the new space in coming weeks, making it into a Buttercup kind of a place with colour, fairy lights, favourite books, a crochet blanket or two, vintage finds and great artwork.

The new room is available to rent for private dinner parties in the evenings and for special events and meetings. We’ve already hosted a banquet for 28 people, a birthday dinner party, a clothes sale and a children’s baking party. Do pop in to the cafe and ask Claire if you’d like to know more.

Look who we found living in The Buttercup basement – all looking for new homes!

A Moroccan Buttercup Soiree

Our Buttercup Birthday Guest

We were delighted to host a Moroccan birthday dinner here in The Buttercup Cafe last week.

Tables were lit with coloured lanterns, drapes were festooned from the ceiling and our guests ate a Moroccan feast. Smoked spice salmon & rocket salad. Followed by baked lamb with cumin, coriander & ground almonds, tabouli and Syrian fattoush.

Of course no Buttercup birthday feast is complete without some loud singing, and a few fireworks in a delicious velvet, chocolate & aubergine cake with chocolate ganache. We had a great time!
