The Reader Cafe


Offering breakfast, lunch, sandwiches, snacks, salads, soups and desserts, as well as two bookshelves full of books to enjoy while eating, the cafe is open Monday - Sunday, 8.30am - 4pm. 

Occassionally the Reader Cafe may close earlier if the weather is particularly terrible and even the most devout of dog walkers are avoiding the rain, but you can always call ahead to check that we're still open, 0151 729 2200.

Menus are regularly updated on a seasonal basis, with daily homemade specials to savour. Vegan and vegetarian dishes are available.


In our long-term plans for the building, we would like to offer another space adjacent to the café and courtyard where visitors could sit and eat in a more relaxed space. This will not be part of our provision for at least 2-3 years, as it is reliant on securing both planning permission and capital funding.
