Our cafe is on the ground floor, serving a range of quality eat-in and takeaway food made from British ingredients, simply prepared and changing seasonally, including:

  • hot soup
  • jacket potatoes with various hot and cold fillings
  • freshly-made delis
  • tray bakes and scones

Specialty drinks are caramel latte and mint hot chocolate (with the option to have marshmallows and whipped cream).

You can bring your own refreshments into the library, but please only consume these in the lounge areas on each floor. Vending machines for cold drinks and snacks are also available in the lounge areas.
