Open Monday – Friday 10am–4pm, Saturday 10am-3pm
The popular Ropetackle Café is a real hub of the community. The large, light and airy foyer is perfect for enjoying a relaxing coffee, meeting with friends for lunch or getting some work done with our free wifi. A child-friendly area gives busy parents and carers space to relax while children are occupied with toys, books and drawing.
With new specials, gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options and even milkshakes for particular diets, there’s something for everyone. Any profits from the café go directly to the Ropetackle registered charity and are re-invested in our exceptional programme of events.
Daily soups and specials are created from fresh seasonal produce, and there is an extended range of scrumptious cakes to enjoy. There are vitamin-rich hot or cold Buddha Bowls available, as well as freshly-prepared sandwiches, paninis and jacket potatoes.

Only Guide Dogs allowed.
Our foyer and Box Office areas do get busy with customers and groups, so for safety reasons, we can only allow Guide Dogs into the Centre. Thank you for your understanding.
