The Orphan Jar!


Orphan JarDo you find that guests leave the most extraordinary items behind after a visit? We had some friends to stay who brought their own coffee with them as we have only full-strength on offer. When they had gone, we discovered an orphan in the kitchen…

And put in the car,
Off on their journey.
