Cafe & Events Venue
Cafe 1809 is the vision of Double Olympic Champion, Dame Kelly Holmes.

In 1983 Kelly was doing paper rounds at the newsagents where Cafe 1809 now stands. Kelly went on to an army career, then became an international athlete. Her memories of working at the shop stayed strong and Kelly knew she wanted to bring a community hub to her village. The newsagents was the perfect location. In 2013 Kelly gained ownership of the premises and project managed the build and in December 2014 Cafe 1809 opened to the public.

Many ask where the name 1809 comes from. It's Kelly's Olympic running number from Athens where she won her two gold medals.

The ethos we live by is Eat, Drink, Relax & Smile.
