A Great Little Place

A Great Little Place award-winning cafés are passionate about great coffee and delicious fresh food. They offer the finest locally-roasted artisan coffee delivered by trained baristas and imaginative food created in their own kitchens.

In the relaxed atmosphere, you can relish hot, crisp, meltingly good paninis, delectable hand-made cakes, fresh soups (made from an abundance of vegetables from their market garden) and mouth-watering pastries. The coffee is expertly made from a blend of traditional flame roasted coffee beans from Fair Trade providers across the world.

A Great Little Place cafés exist to make a positive difference to the lives of people with autism and are social enterprise by Autism Ventures, a subsidiary of the charity Autism Initiatives UK, who provide autism-centred services throughout the UK.

For The Atkinson it means working with an established local brand that is known for its high quality and value for money. We are able to work with A Great Little Place to maximise our programme with pre-show meals, themed events, festival food and more.

The two organisations have shared values and vision. They will be an extension of The Atkinson family and together we will be able to provide the best in quality to visitors.
