About Chapter and Holmes
Chapter & Holmes began as a dream to offer people good products, founded on our beliefs of integrity, passion, service and a fundamental core of good flavour. Our product line is based on excellent Coffee, San Pellegrino Fruit Beverages, Clipper Organic Teas and beautiful fresh local cakes. We provide good quality, ethically sourced coffees and goods.
We are open from 10am - 5pm daily throughout the summer season and on weekends throughout November.
Where to Find us
You'll find our lovely converted Piaggo Ape sitting on the North Somerset side of the Clifton Suspension Bridge opposite the Visitor Centre. Enjoy a view of the Leigh Woods tower as you sit and enjoy a drink!
We have worked hard to find the best suppliers in the country that hold our ideals true: Our aim is be able to tell our customers every single items provenance right to origin. As a standard, the very minimum we work with is fair trade, but the majority of our product is direct trade meaning that farmers and communities get paid well and can build their communities. These enterprises mean that communities can build schools and hospitals even when the wholesale price drops. We can tell you who roasted our speciality coffee and on which machine and which farms produced the beans. Everything we do is ethically sourced, traceable to origin, organic where possible and direct and fair trade. If you are interested in our ingredients origins, coffee roasters, tea suppliers, milk or cake suppliers or anything at all about us please feel free to ask at any time. We are proud of, and stand by, every ingredient we sell.
Our products are all available for vegan, gluten free, dairy free and paleo diets. We believe customers should enjoy their beverage with their choice of soya, almond or coconut milks and we source Alpros professional alternative milks which are designed for the coffee trade. We insist on it as it provides the smoothest steamed milks and doesn't curdle. Our fresh cakes are available to cater for every dietary requirement too and are clearly labelled and certified gluten free.

Nuts - All cakes are nut free but are manufactured in a factory where nuts are used in other goods.

We offer the finest food and beverage products available whilst minimising our environmental impact and this extends to our consumables too. Whilst this has almost become an industry cliche we are striving year on year to reduce our consumption and impact. In 2017 we are working with Biopac on our consumables and are able to offer a 100% compostable, recyclable and largely biodegradable line to our customers. We also endeavour to provide customers with a reusable alternative.
