Courtyard Curiosities, The Barrow

Covid-19 Situation


The Courtyard Coffeehouse Knutsford is currently closed under the instruction of the Government for all Restaurants and Bars in order to assist in reducing the spread of the Corona virus. This is devasting news for everyone in the hospitality industry and beyond, but we understand it is a necessity.

We have formulated a survival plan on the basis that this could be a long-term closure and we can confirm, to all our customers, that we will be able to reopen once the government give the instruction that it is safe to do so. At this current time it is difficult to know if this could be 1 month or 6 months and beyond?

In the meantime we hope you stay safe and we look forward to welcoming you again. Lots of love from Rob, Althea and the team X.

Are you looking forward to spring, warmer weather and the opportunity to enjoy a relaxing alfresco breakfast, lunch, or just a quick coffee in our lovely courtyard. I wonder what will be on the barrow this year? A selection of fresh herbs or some home grown fruit and veg perhaps?

The Barrow

The old Costermongers barrow has been a feature of our lovely courtyard for several years now. We don’t know how old the barrow is, but it is typical of a design that was common in Victorian times. Such barrows were typical at Spitlefields in London where young men ran around with these very heavy contraptions loaded to the hilt with spuds and other items. Though the Spitlefields barrows were usually painted green with red wheels.

Many of our visitors find the variety of curiosities both inside, and out, to be a charming and intriguing aspect of the cafe.
