Abbey Wood coffee shop gets reprieve after Bexley Council threatened eviction

Abbey Good coffee in the grounds of Lesnes Abbey have won a temporary reprieve and will continue to trade over the summer.

Bexley Council had asked them to vacate the premises at the end of May. That came shortly after they had asked a Yoga group to vacate the adjacent hall with complaints of extremely onerous restrictions such as not permitting doors to be open on hot days.

The owners of the coffee business state: “We have been offered an extension and we are looking forward to a smashing summer with you all”.

Bexley Council helped secure millions for the park area from the National Lottery which was very welcome – and local business then did a good job attracting more people to the site. It seems a shame working together has proved so difficult.
