About Us

It’s hard not to smile when you walk up the cobbles and see the courtyard tucked away off Market Street in Atherton. 

When you walk through the gates it’s obvious we’re one of a kind, and that’s the way we like it.

Our staff will greet you with a smile as soon as you walk through the doorturn to the right to take a seat and you get to admire the eclectic collection of work created by local artists that we’re proud to display on our walls.  

Then it becomes obvious we’re also massive fans of live music  

What drives us is the future of our community and we want to make locals as passionate about live music as we are! 

Our Mission

To create a unique and unforgettable social hub in our local community, connecting people and inspiring them to learn new skills, whilst enjoying a cup of coffee, homemade cake, and discovering great music.
