The Workhouse

Muddy says: this coffee shop is filled with countryside charm but with a glimpse of that contemporary London feel that gives it an edge and makes it a great brunch spot!

A coffee shop where contemporary London style meets countryside charm, giving a nod to the history of the building. The Workhouse was originally constructed in 1836 specifically as the local workhouse, hence the name, but now it’s here for you to do the opposite of work (unless like us, you set up your Mac in many a coffee shop)! Located in a conservation area, after a complete renovation The Workhouse looks unrecognisable, but still has some original features such as the black and white tile flooring which was uncovered during the building phase.

Enjoying a coffee and sitting at their breakfast bar opens a view to Brixworth’s bustling high street, a prime people-watching spot. Their menu offers quite a range with hot and cold food serving brunch, paninis, cakes and of course delish hot drinks that’ll set you up for the day. Conscious they are too, food waste is kept to a minimum and they donate to local charities where possible (all packaging used is biodegradable and the coffee is Fairtrade). There’s a kids menu too if you’ve got the Mudlets in tow and we happen to know a few locals who swear by the avocado, bacon and tomato brunch (and when we say swear, they have it EVERY time)!
