People working from home sometimes need to meet or entertain clients, away from the home or home office. Amongst other reasons, it might be wise to choose somewhere less isolated, especially for a first meeting.
People working in larger businesses normally have access to company-owned meeting places and conference rooms, near to their workplace. This means that little time is wasted travelling to each brief meeting, and that meetings can be arranged at short notice.
Time is precious for home-based business people, so ideally, a meeting place should be within about five to ten minutes (walking or driving); offer at least coffee/tea, peace & privacy without isolation, have WiFi, nearby parking; be easy to find; be available at short notice.
There are several suitable places within about ten miles, but few if any in Clifton. Here are some of the nearby meeting places & meeting or training rooms. Some are also good for when you need to get out of the house in order to finish that vital document or report.
Many cafés, restaurants, public houses and hotels will welcome business people. Some can provide separate rooms. But do try to avoid their peak times, especially their peak mealtimes, when their table space will be precious. It's a good idea to check that a venue is suitable, before holding an important meeting.
