For sit-in, we recommend wearing your mask except when eating/drinking. We will actively be reminding folks about wearing face coverings. If you have difficulty with ay aspect of our Covid Secure systems, please ask a member of our staff for assistance.

WHO ARE WE?

Stray’s is a family-owned and run independent coffee shop, eatery and live jazz venue, established in Newark on Trent in 2003…

Where are we?

Stray’s has been open in Newark on Trent since 2003. We opened in Oakham in October 2019 and in Stamford in March 2020 – yes, just when Coronavirus hit the UK!

As soon as the world returns to relative normality, we’ll be opening more stores, but for now, “Three is the magic number, yes it is…”
