Refuel and relax in the welcome space or in our peaceful garden!

Our redeveloped welcome space includes a new refreshment area. We offer a selection of hot drinks, soft drinks, cookies & muffins, crisps as well as healthy snacks and fruit.

A selection of sandwiches and children's rolls are now available from Tuesday to Sunday.

Hot and cold lunches are available in the University bar next door.

You are welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy in the garden, where several picnic benches are available.
