I totally fell in love with this place, from the wildly knowledgable owner, the pretty interior and truly unique and incredible drinks…

This is the place to go in Basingstoke for breakfast and to pick up a loaf. Top quality food, baked goods and coffee. Oh, and some rather magnificent cake.

Basingstoke has really lacked this sort of coffee scene and I’m so excited to see a proper independent coffee scene emerge here.

Take a look around…

The Yard at Chilton Candover, Alresford

Right in the heart of the Candover Valley is The Yard, a cafe offering a unique location for a coffee, food and curated special events.
