The Coffee Tavern, Eaton Bray
The Coffee Tavern, Eaton Bray
Located at 18 High Street LU6 2DP, this building dates from the late 19th Century and was opened in April 1901 for the men of the village to meet instead of being in the numerous local public houses that existed at the time. The upstairs consisted of a billiard table and comfortable chairs, with a coke-burning stove for heating. Downstairs provided reading rooms, with coffee available over a stable door in the kitchen. In the late 1990s, the building was refurbished by Eaton Bray Parish Council. Today, it is used as a meeting place for various groups including the Parish Council and the Youth Group. It is also available for hire, with the main hall suitable for approximately 50 people with kitchen facilities, and two smaller rooms available for say committee meetings.
