Closure of The Old School Canteen

Regrettably, after seven successful years at the Museum, the Old School Canteen coffee shop has ceased trading.

The coffee shop was an independent business and despite support from the Museum charitable trust during its period of operation, during Covid, and throughout the current energy crisis, the proprietor decided that the escalating energy and catering cost pressures had become unsustainable.

We’ve been so lucky to have such a superb and unique refreshments offer for our museum visitors, and the awards it’s won are testament to its popularity with many customers from Barton and further afield.

We wish all the team every success in their new jobs and thank them for all their enthusiasm and hard work.
