About Art Lover's Cafe
Combining the amazing setting of a Mackintosh inspired house with fresh ingredients from the best local suppliers, our Art Lover's Café is the perfect place to relax and unwind.
We also offer a private dining area capable of seating up to 20 guests which is available for exclusive use, whatever the occasion.
Great food and friendly service are our number one priority. So why not join us inside or on our beautiful terrace in the park for a spot of alfresco dining.
Afternoon Tea is served daily 2.00-4.00pm
Staff member who served us could not have been more courteous or helpful. Food was delicious.
Lovely setting; service just a little on the slow side; menu is interesting with a few unusual combinations. Fishcakes were mostly potato with an occasional piece of fish; chorizo mash was disappointing -a few small pieces of chorizo with quartered roast potatoes.
I have visited the cafe on several occasions and have always enjoyed the experience.
How long does it take to top up tea and coffee?
some soft furnishings to absorb background noise would help. All of us are deaf and wear hearing aids. We all enjoyed our lunch nevertheless.
A perfect place for a celebratory lunch
Booked online and asked for a table by the window as it was my birthday and our wedding anniversary, having got married there 14 years ago. This request was totally ignored. Whilst I appreciate requests cannot always be accommodated but to not even acknowledge the request is not good. We asked to change seats but were told all tables were reserved. I find it very unusual that all the reserved tables had been specifically requested. The food was the usual good standard and service was fine but the lack of recognition for what was a special occasion was disappointing.
Beautiful café and lovely afternoon tea. So many cakes that my party and I ended up taking some home with us as we couldn't eat it all. Everything was delicious. Even though the cafe was busy with some larger parties, staff still tried their best to make sure all guests were happy.
I love the House for An Art Lover and have been to the cafe many times. However, I was unable to have lunch as the car park was jammed with people going to the football. The ski centre had someone monitoring their Car park and it would be great if you would do the same, as you must be losing a lot of trade on every match day
Beautiful afternoon, good reserving a table so I knew we wouldn't have to wait too long Good choice on menu. We had scones & Lattes - the best scones we've had in a while.
Booking a table is a pre requisite as it is so popular. The booking system is one of the simplets I have ever used. The light bites menu for older folk is fantastic both in terms of value but also in terms of diet. The service was unobtrusive and quite excellent. Well done guys.
My mum and I decided to take my Gran for lunch having been ourselves recently for a coffee. We all enjoyed our meals and the staff were very polite and accommodating.
Another wonderful lunch in the delightful House for an Art Lover cafe!
I was with an elderly friend and we had to stand for a significant period of time while the waitress attended to someone else. The restaurant was not busy when we arrived so there was no real reason for this. I feel they could have been more sensitive to the needs of an elderly person who walked with the aid of a stick. Also we had a reserved table and inquired about a table next to ours without a reserved sign. We had to wait again to see if it was free even tho it had no reserved sign. Every other part of the service was very good apart from the reception process.
We had afternoon tea and it was so lovely! Really enjoyed and will definitely be back.
My wife and I were celebrating our first anniversary having got married at the venue last year. The staff were very attentive and friendly, and had recognised that it was our anniversary prior to us arriving, which was nice. The food was outstanding as always, and it was another wonderful visit for us both.
We have never been disappointed. Lovely service, food and overall experience.
Had a lovely first time visit. Thank you.
The staff were pleasantly friendly and efficient. This is my second visit to the Art Lover’s Cafe, and I look forward to my next. PS. The banana tart tatin was delicious!
Delighted to eat here for a special occasion. Can't believe the venue has been there for 20 years. Service and staff as always are brilliant. The food remains a standout in a City full of exceptional venue's. Love it!
Lovely atmosphere, very relaxing, Visiting friends were very impressed.
