Someone once described the Hub Cafe as the 'kitchen table' of the Hub, sitting as it does right at the heart of the centre, often bustling and always welcoming. After almost 20 months of closure during the pandemic, with a new manager (hello Sharon) and the building up of a new team, the cafe has finally got its aprons back into action and the kitchen back smelling of wonderful things!
Usually, we would be open four days a week providing affordable, home-cooked, quality food. (For now we are opening just 2 days a week whilst we rebuild our team- see details below.) Overlooking our courtyard, the Hub Cafe is a friendly, social environment where everyone is welcome (from tiny tots to seniors and every age in between!)
The cafe is headed up by a small staff team, alongside a "we-simply-couldn't-do-it-without-them" wonderful and hardworking team of volunteers. We believe that food matters and the majority of our food is homemade and freshly-made on the premises by our food-loving cooks. Alongside our scrummy homemade cakes, we also serve panini and toasted sandwiches, homemade soup & quiches, baked potatoes, daily specials, toasted tea cakes and scones. Oh, and we also have a 5* Food hygiene rating.
If you have little ones…
Our free soft play area might help make that cup of coffee that little bit more relaxing! Open Tuesday-Thursday 12 noon-2.30pm (term time) and 10am-2.30pm every Friday, under 5s are welcome to burn off some energy whilst you watch on. **(The soft play is currently closed- to be reviewed in the new year.)
In need of a listening ear…?
We have a team of volunteers waiting to provide just that. Once we a re up and running again, a member of our Listening Team will be floating in the Cafe for anyone who may be looking for a friendly face and open ears to sit down alongside. **(The Listening Team hope to restart sometime in the new year.)
The cafe will be open for 3 weeks before Christmas, 10am-2.30pm:
Tuesday 30th Nov, Wednesday 1st Dec
Tuesday 7th & Wednesday 8th Dec
Tuesday 14th & Wednesday 15th Dec.
It will then take a Christmas break before reopening Tuesdays & Wednesdays 10am to 2.30pm the w/c 10th Jan 22.
