Our work doesn't end at espresso. We provide a laid back creative environment to all sorts of different groups and artists. It can be a gallery, offering its walls for free to artists for month long exhibition slots, or a music and poetry venue when we host acoustic nights.

If you want to get in touch, about events happening in the cafe, maybe you want to put on an event of your own? or maybe you just want to ask for some advice about making coffee at home, please do send us an email, a facebook message or a tweet.


We have pretty regular coffee tastings in store, get in touch or check social media to see when our next event is.


Darkroom has also seen the development of an excellent cycling club, run by Darkroom’s own Stephen Michael Jordan, Darkroom Espresso Cycling Club, has grown steadily since November and now has over 50 members.

Art, Poetry, and Music

Every month we give over our walls to a different artist, its lovely to have such big white walls and be able to offer free exhibition space to all those talented people out there. We have fairly regular music and poetry events, follow us on facebook if you want information on upcoming shows.
