Whether you’re visiting to see a show, attending a class or are just feeling peckish, Z-Café at Z-arts is the perfect place to grab a bite to eat and something to drink in the beautiful surroundings of our 107 year old building.

Our café is fully accessible and is situated on the ground floor, just along from reception. We have interval ice-cream if you’re coming to enjoy a show and fabulous cakes from The Black Cat Cakery, which are a treat with our fresh coffee or a lovely cup of tea.

We serve food which is freshly made on premises every day, lunch is generally 12-2pm. We serve a healthy, light breakfast on Mondays and Saturdays. Mondays are always Meat Free.

Please note: our opening hours change from week to week. Unsure when we’re open? Give us a call!

We are family friendly

Friday nights are family nights. Join us for board games, Lego challenges, and music!  

There are baby-changing facilities, high-chairs, comfy sofas for when your little ones are in need of a nap, plus we have a kids corner with books, Duplo and dressing up! You are welcome to bring your own baby food, and we are happy to heat this for you.

Our picnic boxes are great value for money and are always available should the kids get hungry outside of meal times. The picnic box contains a sandwich, drink, and fruit plus 2 snack items.

Z-café bar

Our Z-Cafe transforms into a bar for grown-up events, with superb wines and bubbles by the bottle or glass, continental beers and British ales, and an extensive spirits selection so you can pop in for a drink after work. Cheers!
