Important notice -
Please note, for the next couple of days there will be changes to our menus and service in our Café Bar. On Friday 3 September, we'll be offering a light breakfast menu and our usual lunch service. From 3pm onwards, we will be running a reduced menu. Saturday 4 September is normal service until 3pm, then a reduced menu for the evening. Normal service resumes on Sunday 5 September. This is due to staff shortages and we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.


Welcome back to our Café Bar!

We’ve got a delicious seasonal menu and we’ve made some great improvements to our spaces including a stylish bar, environmentally-friendly lighting and all-gender toilets. Prefer to sit outside? We have a fabulous marquee at the front of our building and extra undercover seating in our beer garden. Patio heaters are available in both areas to keep you cosy when it gets a little chilly. To keep everyone safe, and to ensure that you have the best possible experience when you visit, we ask you to work with us by following our visitor guidelines here.

Our bright and spacious Café Bar and has a vibrant atmosphere at all times of the day, seven days a week. It’s the perfect place to enjoy art with your espresso, grab something tasty before a film or just linger with friends over something to share. Fast and free wifi is available and you’re welcome to use our new laptop-friendly area (with lots of plug sockets) as an ad hoc office or for informal meetings. 

Please read this information for what to know before you visit. This page will be updated regularly, according to the latest government guidelines.
