If you didn’t already know we’re based in Hertford, you do now. But where, exactly?
For a couple of years we were based in an attic on Fore Street. And four years ago we moved to… an attic on Fore Street. A bigger and better one though!
ma is now on the top floor of The Red House, opposite Marks and Spencer. We love that it’s crammed full of character, and is close to Hertford East station and plenty of parking. We’re outside London, but still really accessible.
The Red House is a Grade II listed building which now houses several businesses and a charity. It dates back to the eighteenth century when it was home to the owners of Hertford’s Young’s Brewery. The brewery was on this site from 1754 until 1897, extending down South Street. It also included its own pub, The Blue Boy (now the Jungle Bar).
If you’re ever in the area and want to pop up for a coffee let us know!
You can check out the carved staircase on your way up, passing the fancy cornicing and fireplaces, high ceilings, Art Nouveau and rococo style details of the lower floors. And then you’ll find us at the top, where our work happens.
Our part of the building, with its iron grates and old beams, may be less elegant, but it’s cosy, full of charm and our door is always open.
