Welcome to Stray's Coffee...

Making the best coffee you'll have today, in Newark, Oakham and Stamford...

COVID19 update

From 19/7/21 there are some changes to restrictions. However, as a responsible business, we will be observing many of the existing restrictions until such time as we feel the risk has reduced sufficiently.
We appreciate some visitors will disagree with our decision to be cautious, but as a business, we must do what we feel is right at this time, to mitigate the risk to customers and staff, while things settle down. Thank you for your understanding at this time and we look forward to seeing you very soon…
Our staff will continue to protect you, by wearing face coverings when indoors. We recommend you continue to wear yours, but it’s absolutely your choice.
We will continue to carry out enhanced cleaning during this transition back to normality.
We will continue to only take card/contactless payments – it’s quicker, cleaner and safer for everyone.
Our seating numbers will increase, but only to the point where we can maintain 1m+ distancing
Where 1m+ is not possible, we will use safety screens, but the number of these will be reduced from 19/7/21. We will also keep our till screens in place.

Join the mailer!

Keep up with all that’s happening at Stray’s…


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…

We use our own sneaky blend of 3 different arabica and robusta coffee beans, ethically sourced from India, Brazil & Peru, to create an outstanding espresso – then our Baristas work their magic to prepare the best coffee you’ll have today..


…return from 18th June, after a long wait! To keep up with all that’s happening, why not subscribe to our jazz mailer?

Coffee beans


We’ve been making great coffee since 2003. Using our unique blend of three coffee beans, coffee is the bedrock of our business…

Our food is made on site in our own kitchens, by trained staff using fresh ingredients. With our own pastry kitchens producing our own range of cakes, we’ve got lunch sewn up!

We’ve been promoting live jazz since 2008, with our own House Band since 2019. Jazz happens on Friday nights at different stores…

Why Stray’s?

The difference between a good business and a great one, are it’s people. Our team is a collective with a common goal – to make you want to Stray’ again and again…


Busy, Busy, Busy...

We may not have been able to have any live jazz during lockdown, but Stray’s house band P.R.S. and their friends have been busy recording ‘The Remote Sessions’ for your listening enjoyment…
