Meet the team behind 7a Coffee Shop

We are Simon and Lizzie, a husband-and-wife team who opened 7a in December 2004. 7a was the first coffee shop in Fairford for many years and it is now a real community meeting place. The 7a building once housed a barber’s shop and was known as Barbers Cottage when we bought it. We turned the ground floor into a shop and the upstairs into our home. Since opening, we have been joined by our three boys, Archie, Bertie and Monty, who are very much the reason we do all we do.

We are a family business. Simon is the chef and makes everything on the menu to order. He also bakes our world-famous chocolate brownies each evening, which are available to buy in the shop and now available to buy online and delivered by post! Lizzie runs the front of house, ensuring a warm welcome for everyone.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
