Visit our family friendly cafe


Welcome to The Ark

Bring the whole family along to our family-friendly cafe! Enjoy a homely cooked lunch or grab great coffee and cake, whilst your kids enjoy our range of toys including our awesome soft play!

How it works

We love being able to support our community and so we've tried to keep costs down as much as possible. For just £2.50 PER FAMILY you can enjoy The Ark all day long, AND even get a free hot drink with that! There's no further obligation to buy further food or drink, but in case you do fancy something, we've got a great menu filled with reasonably priced sandwiches, meals, and kids' food. We're also more than happy to mix and match items on our menu in case you're bringing any picky eaters.
