About Stokes Tea and Coffee

Stokes of Lincoln has been brewing a quality cuppa for more than 100 years. If you lined up each cup sold since the café opened in High Bridge in 1937, it would reach from the Stonebow in Lincoln to Nelson’s Column in Trafalgar Square. Great grandson Nick Peel now heads up the business which has passed through four generations.

Coffee beans are shipped in from Brazil, El Salvador, Costa Rica and Columbia. They arrive in great hessian sacks stamped with their country of origin and piles of them line the warehouse. Up to a tonne is roasted every week.

Stokes’ café on High Bridge dates back to 1540 and the bridge it stands on to 1160. It’s the only medieval bridge with buildings on it still standing in the country.

Besides the quality drinks it’s definitely this charm that brings customers back again and again.
