About Cafe Football National Football Museum

Here is where we capture the very essence of football in our menu and restaurant design... fun, relaxed dining influenced by the spirit of the game!

Football fans and foodies will appreciate a diverse, rounded menu with subtle nods to the beautiful game. We don't take ourselves too seriously but when it comes to the guest experience, we want every visitor to feel at home.

We take traditional produce and transform it, by hand, into something a bit different. It’s wholesome food, but not quite as you know it.

It was all inspired by good, honest food which brings people together, whether in the stands or at home.

We took this idea of wholesome food and turned it into something a bit special. Cafe Football is a unique restaurant that feeds a love of food and football.

Staff were all excellent from waiting staff to chefs. They were genuine, friendly, welcoming and efficient. Food and drinks were also of an excellent standard. We would definitely recommend.

The food was great a lot better than I expected, it was just a bit quiet but it was a Wednesday tea time. I would Defo eat her again. I had the protein chicken dish with sweet potatoe and it was lovely. The ice cream sundaes were lovely but a little expensive as I have 3 children and it cat £6 each so next time I will get the children’s meals as the we’re very generous sized .

Lovely, friendly staff, gave us time to choose drinks and food. Food was reasonably priced. Nothing fancy, just good and plentiful. We got a good deal as we were going to an event at the MEN Arena...well worth it. Will definitely eat there again.

I took my son and daughter to watch the City game. The staff were unbelievably rude, lazy and did not ask us for anything we had to try and catch their attention in a polite manner. we eat out regularly and as we love the food at Cafe Football we decided to go out on Sunday. The blonde haired lady was the worst. She was only interested in serving a table of 5 gentlemen behind us and at one point stood chatting to them for 15 minutes plus, when our food order had not been placed and our glasses empty. There was no 'manager' visible. Maybe while the cat's away the mice will play?

Service was very friendly and pleasant - but we waited a long time for food - wasn't an issue for us as we were in no rush - but it was slow - Sat down at 12.20 and did not get mains until 13.25. Had a starter but still seemed slow.

Initially service was slow, 27 minutes to be acknowledged, but after the first round the service improved and we would return! Seemed to be only one lad on serving, and the manager doing front of house.

Rang the week before to say we had a vegan in our group and were told not to worry and the chef would be able to accommodate. When we turned up we were told there was not a vegan option. The child ended up with chips and beans!! Very poor especially as we had rang a week before to let you know!!

Good for a pint and the game. Found food to be very pricey for what it was. Don't get me wrong was nice, but just expensive.

Went on a Saturday afternoon. The cafe was busy but not packed. Menu is reasonably priced. Food & drink were really nice (Beef & Onion pie, mash & gravy). Service was excellent. Would recommend & will return.

The food was excellent which exceeded my expectations. Was good for the lads to watch the football while the girls had a chat so everyone was happy. Will recommend and will be back.

Unfortunately it took far too long for our meals to come, we were waiting an hour and with 4 children this definitely compromised the experience. We did however appreciate the apology for waiting but perhaps it would of been a nice gesture to offer another drink whilst we waited.

I am really sorry but this was my first experience at the café football and I was disappointed by the food. I had the beef and gravy pie and the crust was rock solid/over cooked and the gravy was incredibly salty. The beef in the pie was a strange consistency. The chips were ok but probably not enough of them. I also had the sticky toffee pudding. My partner had the HomeTeam burger and said it was ok. Service wise, there was one individual we felt was friendly and attentive but he only stood out as the others just wandered around. I wouldn't choose to eat here again, it is what it is, a café in a football museum, I had to keep reminding myself that,
