The Jailbreak Cafe is Famous!

What an exciting few months it's been for The Jailbreak Cafe since it opened in November. Not only have we been super busy with all of our lovely customers; we've also had visits from film crews and radio reporters too! 

After moving our head office to the old Police Station in Hoddesdon last year, we wanted to open the former custody suite and cells to the general public. We decided to transform it into The Jailbreak Cafe; and it's been getting quite a lot of attention!  

For those that visit regularly, you will have seen that we've been closed for a few days here and there, as a production company has been hiring the custody suite and cells for filming - our premises are famous! 

You can spot the old Hoddesdon Police Station, on the latest series of 'Released to Kill Again', and keep your eyes peeled for an upcoming Channel 5 series on Belmarsh prison! 

If you're a BBC Three Counties listener, you would have also heard us on Jonathan Vernon-Smith's show at the weekend, as part of the Treasure Quest feature! We were joined by a reporter who visited us at The Jailbreak Cafe and reported back to the BBC radio studio about the transformation! 

If you haven't visited us yet, please do! Our opening hours are as follows:

Mon-Fri, 9.30am - 2pm 

And keep an eye out on our social media for our special Saturday openings!
