When the government response to Covid first took over our industry, we were advised not to accept cash payments. This occurred across the country from June 2020 until April 2021, when we re-opened for a full service, albeit with restrictions.
Since then, as we suspected from the offset, the science says that cashless payments are no safer than cash payments.
We do not dispute this. However, as a business, we have chosen to only accept card payments. This is purely commercial and has nothing to do with Covid. It is quicker, cleaner (honestly, coins are really dirty) and provides a more streamlined process commercially.
We appreciate that some of you will not want to pay by card and apologise if this causes concern or inconvenience for you.
Thank you for being on this ongoing journey with us and long may it continue!

Stray’s is a family-owned and run independent coffee shop, eatery and live jazz venue. Established in Newark on Trent in 2003 we now also have stores in Oakham and Stamford, with store number 4 coming in early Summer 2021…
