Westbury shop and cafe has been established as a not-for-profit community initiative and has recently undergone some exciting new changes.
Hellen has recently taken over the management of the shop and café with an increased emphasis on the café. We will continue to sell local products and a few necessities, with an aim to increasing the seating and tables in the café so we can provide for more people. Hellen will be working alongside our lovely local volunteers and Emily.
The vintage-style café, offering free wi-fi, serves freshly brewed tea and real coffee and delicious cakes including gluten-free (made by Hellen & committee members) and pastries. We have a new menu which we will continue to improve, for both eating in and taking away. Any requests or suggestions would be welcome.
We are proud to be wheelchair friendly, have ample parking – including disabled spaces adjacent to the building. We are also child & baby friendly – we have a few highchairs and even offer babychinos! There is a large play area opposite.
“I highly recommend this little shop, really well stocked and you can buy hot drinks and sit inside/outside to enjoy a brief respite! – Ina Wallace”

Westbury now has its very own Café Society that anyone can join. The first event was an evening with Jonathan Keates, Chair of ‘Venice in Peril’, working to restore and support Venice, speaking on ‘Is Venice sinking and does it really matter?’. In February 2019, a Comedy evening is planned to cheer up the grey days before spring. And an evening on local history is planned for early summer. For more information and to join please click HERE.
