Hello!

Welcome to The Currant. We are here for you. What do you fancy?

An excellent cup of Climpson & Sons coffee, a slice of handmade cake, a hearty toastie, a healthy salad or a cheeky scoop of award-winnng artisanal gelato?  You can get it all of your sweet & savoury desires met at The Currant.

About Us

We do our best to support local, independent, small businesses.  Our small retail section features products by Bim’s Kitchen, Manilife Peanut Butter, Yuyo Yerba Mate, Sauce Shop, Prince & Son’s tea, Climpson & Sons coffee, Marimba Hot Chocolate Melts and Ouse Valley to name a few.

This striking venue is available for hire for certain events – so far we have hosted various children’s parties and The Wanstead Business Network.  Tell us what you are looking for and we will do our best to help.  As we are independent you will find that we are flexible (within reason!) - most things are negotiable!  

We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Apple Pay (or Apple Watch if you are fancy!), and Smartphone Payment.

Wi-fi is free and fast, as long as you at least buy something(!) then you are welcome to work here!

We have a Loyalty Card Scheme to keep you coming back for more -  buy 9 coffees get one free.

We are Dog Friendly and have had an amazing selection of dogs at The Currant – from a gorgeous Northern Inuit (aka Dyer Wolf!) to the smallest Chihuahua ever!  As long as your dog is clean and well mannered it will be welcome.

Why Us

Our Drinks

For our liquid needs we work closely with Prince & Son’s Tea to provide you with fabulous loose-leaf tea.  Our milk is delivered to us daily by Parker Dairies based in Woodford who supply us wtih lovely Pensworth milk. For our wonderful coffee we work with Climpson & Sons for ethically sourced specialty coffee beans and La Marzocco provides our lovely coffee machine we call it “The Baby” as it's our most precious thing!  What more can you ask for?

Our Food

We get our bread from the fabulous bakers at The Bread Factory.  Our suppliers include the wonderful Wanstead Fish, Heron’s Nest Cakes and Il Gelato di Ariela.  We are always looking to enhance our offering and cater for your needs, we have recently started serving dairy and egg-free cakes.  We have gluten free options too. We also have made all our smoothies dairy-free too.

Our Community

We support community schools and centres like the Woodbine Centre and Hatton School & Special Needs Centre.  Support us in supporting them!  When we first opened in June 2016 with your help we raised over £300 for Hatton School through gelato sales in our opening month.

Do you have any ideas or suggestions about what more we can do to support the local community?
