Corky is our vintage coffee and cakes van, which allows us to bring the very best of our Mermaids Deli to your event, party, office or even your front door! Fitted with a La Marzocco Coffee Machine powered by a rechargeable battery on board (which is charged using a renewable energy tariff and solar panels) Corky can go anywhere, with no noisy generators or gas canisters on board. A replica Model T Ford, Corky combines the very best of the old nostalgia and new technology to make a truly unique vehicle. Our experienced baristas are able to make a selection of your favourite hot drinks using Moonroast Coffee, luxury hot chocolate as well as carrying Joe’s Teas and of course a selection of Mermaids home made cakes, brownies and cookies.
Corky is available for booking for private events, parties & weddings, school fetes, village fayres, local festivals, sports events, corporate events and anywhere else where you have ever thought I really need a coffee!
We offer package pricing for Corky to attend private events, however we can also offer bespoke packages outside of these options on request.

The time Corky will attend your event for will vary according to the number of attendees. If you would like Corky on site for a specific amount of time please let us know when booking. We can also upgrade the above packages to include unlimited hot drinks for each attendee and the price for this will vary according the amount of time we are on site and the number of attendees. Please note that Corky is a vintage vehicle so we are generally only able to attend bookings local to Botley in Hampshire.
For larger events with high public footfall such as Markets and Fayres please contact us if you are interested in booking Corky for your event and we would be pleased to have a chat about whether the event would work for both of us.
