The café is in the conserved Assay Office building and the original function of the building is represented both in the prize-winning sensitive restoration of the building and with information panels and images from the early years of the twentieth century.
The Croust Hut is positioned between the South Condurrow Stamps Engine House and Count House buildings adjacent the Great Flat Lode mineral tramway trail, popular with cyclists and walkers.
The creation of the Croust Hut café was part of the King Edward Mine Museum Redevelopment Project and we are very grateful to the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development for their contribution towards the fit out of the café’s kitchen.
