LIVE JAZZ...

Despite having gigs booked through to March 2021, our jazz programme is on hold for now. As soon as we are able, the gigs will be re-launched. To keep up to date, why not subscribe to our ‘jazz mailer’ at the bottom of this page?

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…

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…”
