Jailhouse cafe stall at Sturminster Newton Cheese FestivalSeptember 16, 2015
The Jailhouse Café had a stall at the recent Sturminster Newton Cheese Festival. It proved to be very popular and introduced the Café based at HMP Guys Marsh in Shaftesbury to many new customers who were unaware it was there.

The Guys Marsh Jailhouse is open to the public Monday to Friday 10-3 for lunches and snacks, but please be aware that we have no card reader there until further notice, so cash only please. Now taking bookings for Christmas!
And finally, many people at the festival commented that they thought The Verne on Portland had closed – can we reassure everyone that although the Verne is no longer a prison, the Café is still alive and very well and is staffed with the men from HMP YOI Portland. Pop up and say hello!
