Our History

Established in Spring 2018 (in the the old Post Office), Datchworth Coffee is the place for great barista coffee, tasty breakfasts, lovely lunches and a delicious selection of cakes. 


As well as our cosy front room, we have a covered and comfortable courtyard - lovely in the summer and when it's a little chilly, with the window-blind down and the heaters on, like being indoors!

We love a pooch in Datchworth Coffee - dogs most welcome inside or in the Courtyard.  Water on tap for the thirsty ones and a natural treat available on the house if well-behaved!!


Supper Club


Every month, we have a special Supper Club evening; a themed 3-course menu with a choice of starter, main and dessert.

Book and pay for food in advance and then on the night, choose from our curated selection of wine, beer or have a bottle of fizz (we are fully licenced).

If you want to join the Supper Club mailing list and be connected to us, please drop us an email to with your name, email and mobile number.
