Food and drink

Our café

Our spacious, welcoming café has elegant furniture, a mini-exhibition of some of our wonderful historic collection on the walls, a brand new entrance on Princess Street and a fantastic menu that features everything that’s great about Great British food.

What’s on the menu?

• Signature soup: classic homemade favourites with a twist
• Our own freshly ground coffee blend and sumptuous loose leaf teas
• Hot and cold sandwiches, baguettes and paninis, all day, every way
• Sweet or savoury afternoon teas (bubbles optional!)
• Wines of the month, wines by the glass
• Sticky, mouthwatering treats crafted by our resident baking genius

Eat in or grab and go!

10am-5pm Saturday and Sunday

Pick up a loyalty card on your next visit (you’ll get a free and rather delicious slice of cake for every eight hot drinks*).
