The museum cafe is open weekdays from 8.30am-4.00pm and 12.00-3.00pm at weekends.
We have a changing daily menu featuring sandwiches, panini's, homemade soup and jacket potatoes. We work with local suppliers to ensure fresh, high quality ingredients. We also serve fresh ground coffee, a range of loose leaf teas and a delicious selection of tempting cakes. All food is prepared on the premises and we are able to accommodate special dietary requirements.
We welcome families and offer bottle and baby food warming facilities, plus activities to entertain children during their meal. Children's lunch boxes are available at the price of £4.00 and include a freshly-made sandwich, box of raisins, fruit juice and a piece of fruit. Also included is a colouring book and crayons.
Please note that during weekend opening hours we serve a reduced menu of hot and cold drinks, snacks and a delicious array of cakes.
