COVID19: The Mansion House is currently closed, with all groups and activities on pause. Please see our news page for any updates and readings that may help.

‘One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well,’ so said Virginia Woolf in A Room of One’s Own.

The Reader Café is in the grand morning and drawing rooms of the Mansion House. Beautiful it may be, but it’s also friendly, welcoming and accessible – with plenty of plants and even an outside terrace.

There’s breakfast, lunch, sandwiches, salads, soups and dessert, plus our daily specials. Whether you’re sitting down, grabbing a bite to take away, or need a hot drink and something sweet for your walk around the park, you’ll find something to suit your tastes. And all profits are re-invested back into our community projects.

Dog-friendly seating is available in the Café and outside on the terrace. Four-legged friends and their owners can enter using the side door via the terrace. Dog owners with accessibility requirements and assistance dogs are encouraged to use the main entrance of the Mansion House.

We thank all dog owners for considering other customers by keeping dogs on leads at all times, including on the terrace.
