Grab a bite to eat

Our café has reopened and will initially be serving a limited range of takeaway hot and cold drinks, and some light snacks. We’ve introduced new safety measures including closure of our seating areas, screens at our till and collection points, and waymarked routes. We’ll also only be accepting card payment. We look forward to welcoming you back and know that you’ll support us to make this a safe experience for everyone.
