'Time at the forge' is part of a unique site in the centre of the village of Aldbourne.

 It adjoins a traditional Blacksmiths shop which has been sympathetically restored and is now open most Saturdays.  We also have our resident florist providing beautiful fresh flowers and arrangements.  

We look forward to spending time with you.


Loose Leaf Tea


Jeeves & Jericho are proud to be a young independent British company. Built from scratch with lots of hard work and a strong belief that a good cuppa should be an exciting and pleasurable experience.

They take great care  in sourcing, blending and hand packing their premium leaf teas to ensure that every sip takes you on a thrilling journey of flavour.



The adjoining Aldbourne Forge has over the last decade been sympathetically restored and re-opened (albeit only at weekends at the moment).  It has long been our desire to extend the existing building which is occupied by the library, to incorporate a traditional Tea Rooms.  We  look forward to welcoming you. and   hope you will be able to share 'Time' with us very soon.

Upcoming Events


Happy New Year to you all.  We have several ideas in the planning for this year.  Watch this space.  

One new addition to our menu for the new year is  croissants.  These will be freshly baked each Saturday and Sunday morning.  Perfect to share with a cup of coffee.

Speciality Roast Coffee


Iron & Fire is a family business with a strong ethos  central to everything they do.  They are careful about how they select their coffees, not only based on their quality and taste profile but also their origins and accreditations. Many of their coffees are Rainforest Alliance and Organically certified. Those that aren’t have been selected from independent farms so they can support the growers directly. The proceeds from some of their coffees go towards some fantastic community projects in the growing areas of Africa, Central and southern America.

They are also environmentally conscious using compostable packaging and running a composting scheme at their roastery. 



We hope that you will be able to share your experiences on social media, and we look forward to sharing your stories on our testimonial section.   Find us on facebook and Instagram.
