Sunday 'live'...

... with all this, who needs Sunday lunch?

Sunday ‘live’ is a great way to spend a chilled out Sunday afternoon.

With our usual daytime menu, cocktails and live music on tap, who needs Sunday lunch?

Sunday ‘live’, sees the return of Sunday opening at Stray’s.

A laid back day, with our usual daytime menu available, starting at 10:00am. Our bar is open and mixologists on hand to make up your favourite cocktail, or serve your preferred beer in a frozen glass. Then, at around 12:30pm the live music starts.

We’ve chosen a mix of artists, from solo musicians with loopers playing jazz, soul and blues, to 3 and 4 piece bands, with vocalists. Something for every taste, every Sunday.

We expect Sundays to be popular, so if you do fancy coming over for anything other than a quick coffee and slab of cake, we recommend you reserve a table, to guarantee we’ll get you in!


  • We open at 10:00am.
  • Food/drinks available to order until 3:15pm and we’ll be kicking you out at 4!
  • Live music starts at 12:30pm. There are a few band-side seats, so if you want to watch the performance, you need to book, and specify wanting a band-side table. We’ll do our best to get you a god spot.
  • These events do not require booking or tickets, however we can’t guarantee you’ll get in if you’re just passing by.
  • If you’re running late, please let us know, as we’ll only hold your table for 20 minutes.
