January's Open House & Le Petit Marché

A Blissful Sunday

Thank you to everyone of you who joined us for a beautiful Sunday on the 29th of January  - for coffee, cocktails and chat!

Hosted inside the candlelit beauty of The Mowbray - we welcomed a wonderful group of people to experience the magic of The Mowbray - and of course down River at The Chimney House. 

We also hosted 'Le Petit Marché' - made up of some truly wonderful creatives and makers who are entirely dedicated to you and your vision on your wedding day. 

We have regular Open Houses - at least once - sometimes twice a month - keep an eye on our Events Page for updates!

Our Next Open House

Weddings at The Mowbray & The Chimney House

Our team loved chatting with you about all things weddings and events and we adored hosting you for a relaxed viewing of The Mowbray or The Chimney House or both!

We styled both The Mowbray and The Chimney House with our trademark candles, soft floral touches and antique curiosities, along with tables laid for a feast with our bespoke Sheffield Steel and gleaming glassware, to give you a magical glimpse into how we would take care of your day with us!

We chatted about beautiful ceremonies at The Chimney House, parties at The Mowbray, our glorious wedding feasts and seasonal menus from The Mowbray Kitchen down to the smallest most beautiful details. 

The Sunday Cocktail Bar & Coffee at Mow's

The Sunday Cocktail Bar was open all day - and as well as serving up Punch Bowls to everyone who visited us - we had the most delicious infusions and homebrews - and served up some magic little tipples and Sunday morning faves!

Mow’s Coffee

Our little inner city coffee hangout ‘Mow’s’ joined us for some expert speciality coffee to liven up our Sunday morning - with coffee, spiced chai and hot chocolate - PLUS Doughboy Pie!

Mow's is our lockdown baby - and is now a flourishing little inner city coffee hangout! Come and see us at the front of Laundry for Hair at Sellers Wheel, 151 Arundel Street - serving up excellent coffee and anytime eating seven days a week.

Our goal is a 'coffee first' cafe experience with a beautiful but pretense free coffee menu that features guest coffees and local house favourites - such as Dark Woods.

Everything is chosen by hand and an exacting eye and has a great story behind it. We spend a lot of time building relationships with some of the most interesting roasters locally and in the UK and around the world to bring you new and diverse tastes and flavours some of which you won't find in many parts of the UK. We tend to buy in small batches so when it's gone it's gone - but you'll always have new coffee to taste and we have new stories to tell...

Le Petit Marché

Designed to be the ultimate recommendation - and a wonderful chance to meet the amazing people who create and make for your beautiful day...

We luxuriated in the company of...
