Gray's Coffee Shop & Kitchen


Gray's Coffee Shop & Kitchen

From 9th July, Grays Coffee Shop & Kitchen will be hosting a socially distanced garden party at their home in LCB Depot of Leicester’s Cultural Quarter, every Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Also, home to Leicester’s premier monthly street food festival ‘Last Friday’.

Grays will be offering a fresh, exciting take on the good old-fashioned BBQ, accompanied by a varied range of sides, salads and sauces, and a dessert menu to think about.  All lovingly created in their newly renovated kitchen and cooked on their big blue BBQ eggs. The chefs at Grays have always been mindful meat-eaters, and are self-conscious about where their meat comes from, so they only use local suppliers where the meat is traceable, and they know the animals are cared for and have had a happy life.

Grays very good friends Bamboo Street Food will also be starring alongside, offering their full 100% Vegan menu. Hailing from Leicester, they’re an established UK street food trader, who’ve featured at festivals and events all over the UK, as well as Leicester’s very own ‘Last Friday’. There will definitely be something for everyone to come down and enjoy!!!

Also on offer will be an extensive range of drinks… ranging from ‘probably’ Leicester’s biggest soft drink selection,  to organic beer and cider from brewers Samuel Smiths, wine selected by local merchants Francis fine wines, a Grays take on cocktails, and the highly regarded coffee and tea served daily at this hidden gem in the city centre.

Service will run from 5.30pm – 9pm, with limited covers, and the option of dining inside or al fresco. Tables will be booked for a minimum of 2, to a maximum of 8 people, and it will be a no pressure affair, so whatever time your table is, it will be yours for the night.

All tables will be set out under the social distance guidelines the government have issued, with private rooms on offer if you wish. Ordering will take place by way of single-use recyclable menus, and a designated order person from your table speaking to one of our team. By offering this type of service and limiting covers, we’ll be ensuring the safety of our patrons and staff alike, minimalising movement and contact.

All staff will have appropriate PPE at their disposal, along with full training in necessary processes and guidelines. There’ll be a movement system in place, as well as sanitising stations available for public use.

If you’re driving to us, the NCP on Rutland Street is literally a stone’s throw away. A ticket validation service will be on offer, so 24-hour parking is available at £5.50 if you decide to stay and a have a few. If you’re being green and coming by bike, then we have bike storage which can house up to 27 bikes.

Bookings will start to be taken from 29th June
