The Poetry Café

The Poetry Café is licensed to sell alcohol to members of the Poetry Society, Poetry Café members and their guests.

We serve bottled beers, a small but interesting range of wines and spirits.

Ordinary licensing restrictions apply – children under 14 are not admitted, we close at 11pm and allow 20 minutes drinking up time.

The licensees and their designated deputies reserve the right to exclude anyone who does not abide by licensing regulations, has drunk too much or causes trouble either for the staff, other customers or neighbours.

If you have any further enquiries regarding licensing, please contact Poetry Cafe.
