Good | Mood | Food


The Recovery College found a new home in Anglesea Road and as a natural progression, The Recovery Café was born.


We became a stand alone social enterprise and renamed ourselves Stir. New name but same principles.


We had a complete redesign, a whole new team and a new menu. We are now open on the weekends too!

All our food is made from scratch, with ingredients from our own allotment where possible and where not (meat and fish for example), is sourced as locally as possible. Volunteers from the College can come and get real-life experience and if they so choose (and many have) can go on and work in the hospitality industry.

While we will always be a café for our students, we are very much part of the wider local community and as inclusive as possible which is best reflected in our price points and our friendly, attentive staff.




Gemma has run her own award-winning allotments as well as managed specialist food retail outlets in the area. So, a perfect fit to be running our place.



As well as running Bridge for the last ten years Raymond came up with the concept of the Stir Cafe. He’s no stranger to manning the pots and pans.


Assistant Manager

Liam is no stranger to the world of hospitality or the world of social enterprise. His friendly manner and ability to make great coffee has won lots of friends.
