UPDATED (24.03.2020):

Due to the most recent government guidance the UK is now locked down which means all of us should stay at home except for very specific reasons – shopping for basic necessities, daily exercise, any medical need and travelling to and from absolutely essential work.

As a result we are now closing all of our buildings until further notice. Rest assured we will keep updated with Government guidance and reopen to our community, tenants, guests and friends just as soon as it is safe to do so. Please keep an eye out on our social channels for future updates.

Till then please take good care of yourself and your loved ones; stay home, save lives and protect the NHS.


All updates about our cafés and buildings will be shared on our: 

  • Column Bakehouse website  
  • Column Bakehouse Twitter, Facebook and Instagram channels  
  • Real Ideas Twitter and Facebook channels  

These are unprecedented times and we are following all the guidance and making the best decisions we can, in everyone’s interest.  We hope to reopen cafés as soon as it is safe to do so.  

 Till then take very good care of yourselves and your loved ones, from all the team at Real Ideas
