The Butter Factory is a welcoming place for people of all ages and walks of life that enjoy good hospitality in a heritage building that oozes ambiance, and a hugely popular sunny courtyard to boot! We have a menu available from the minuet we open till close including fantastic coffee and great range of non-alcoholic drinks. However we also have an extensive range of craft beers, local wines and fresh cocktails served by friendly staff. A major focus here at "Butters" is the entertainment that we host, everything from poetry evenings, youth gigs, touring bands, movie nights, and burlesque shows! Please see our website or FB page for our very busy event schedule. Or contact us if you want to bring your talents to our stage. See you soon!
