The Quaker Centre Bookshop and Café, the Seed Kitchen restaurant, and the Library are currently closed until further notice.

Friends House is not just the place to meet. It is also the place to read and eat! The Quaker Centre Bookshop and Café offers a large selection of books, while a small selection of cakes, pastries, salads, sandwiches, and snacks is available to eat in or take away.
