Butler’s Coffee House
Located just off the square in the Nottinghamshire market town of Bingham is Butler’s Coffee House. Inhabiting a Grade II-listed former butcher’s shop, this delightful place.
Butler’s is the latest venture from Melanie and Richard Seaman, owners of Great Food Club-recommended pub The Chestnut in nearby Radcliffe on Trent. Their café retains many original features. Lovingly restored, it has wooden beams with huge meat hooks still attached, plus original shutters and a glass-paned screen; you can even enjoy your coffee on the original marble slab originally used to display the meat.
Melanie and Richard are passionate about their coffee, serving locally roasted Outpost coffee from a gleaming new Italian espresso machine. There are homemade cakes, savoury platters and sandwiches. Butler’s has a lovely atmosphere, making the most of the heritage of the building and serving a select range of teas, coffees and snacks. When we visited we enjoyed our coffee and Banana & Nutella cake on the characterful marble counter and watched the world go by. What a lovely, quirky coffee shop – well worth a visit!
There is parking just around the corner and there are plans to open in the evenings.
