About Old School Cafe

Why the 'Old School Cafe'? Well the building was an old school! Built in 1847 - it expanded until reaching a peak in 1904 with 120 pupils. It was converted to 3 cottages in 1933 when pupil numbers had declined to 25 and the remaining pupils moved to Lyne School.

In the mid 1950's my father Klass Mienes rented one of the end cottages, and it became our family home. One night the middle cottage caught fire, luckily we were alerted by a neighbour and everone escaped safely. However all the cottages were badly destroyed. My father decided to buy what was left and so the cafe was creted in what had been the cloakroom and one of the classrooms.

He added a second floor and my mother Beryl ran the cafe until the late 1960's. I took it over sometime later and have run it ever since!
