Honouring the history of our buildings and their surrounding areas continues to be our inspiration, designing each new House to feel familiar but wholly unique. This narrative leads us to consider more about what we believe encapsulates ‘Modern Coffee’.
We respect ‘Speciality Coffee’ for the benchmark it provides; dedication to a transparent and ethical supply chain, focus on provenance, flavour and quality of coffee. It is the foundation of knowledge at each stage of our work, and an evolving source of reference.
Modern Coffee encapsulates a wider experience, recognising the breadth of what makes your coffee stop special - excellent coffee, considered spaces, quality food and most importantly the people involved every step of the way.
Grounded in community, inspired by the past, our aspiration is to be your local hero wherever we open. We are the welcome alternative to the faceless chain, a home for the curious customer who knows what they want, and are loyal to what is good.
WatchHouse’s ethos is to be an active part of the communities we inhabit - we make great coffee and delicious food in bespoke environments. It is as simple as that.
