Introducing Fairground coffee

Fairground prides itself on being a socially responsible company: its premium coffee is 100% organic and sourced ethically and responsibly from worker-friendly cooperatives in Peru and Honduras. The company also recycles coffee waste into biofuels and uses 100% recyclable or compostable paper cups. In addition, Fairground has partnered with GROUNDS UP, a collective of UK charity partners and community projects supported by Extract Coffee Roasters. These are grass-roots projects dedicated to making a difference: they have assisted ex-rough sleepers in London, hospitality professionals in the North, vulnerable groups in the Cotswolds, and young people from ` communities across the South West.

Special offer: buy a Deller Hall Café keep-cup and your first 8 oz Fairground coffee is on us. Visit the café for details.

The café also offers a coffee loyalty scheme – buy 9 cups of coffee and the 10th cup is free.
