Leo’s Beanery is a new addition to the Stockbridge/Newtown area and is run by Marie and Joe Denby. One of the main attractions for me is the furniture here, which has all been hand made out of recycled church pews and yew trees. If the wooden pieces were for sale, I would have bought half the shop there and then.
The food and drink menu doesn’t disappoint either here and is reasonably priced. My dining partner and I had intended to just grab a quick lunch to go, but on seeing the interior, decided to linger a little longer.
I had a generously filled roast ham roll with salad whilst my dining partner had the soup of the day.
To drink, I opted for a pot of lemongrass tea from the extensive herbal offerings which came with a small dish of honey. My dining partner went for an Artisan Roast coffee which was very cheap compared to similar locations.
I somehow managed to refuse the excellent looking homebaking on offer, making do with a sample of their banana loaf. We were in and out in 30 minutes, but loved the vibe of this friendly place.
The bathrooms must also be visited when coming here and we’ll definitely be back.
Suitable for disabled? Leo’s Beanery is down in a basement and a set of stairs. There are some seats outside mid way down if that could be managed, but the bathrooms are down further steps.
