West Cafe

We’re excited to announce that we will be opening West Café on Wednesday 5th August. We know that you’ve been wanting West Café to open just as much as we had, but we wanted to ensure all the correct safety measures were in place for your safety as well as the health and wellbeing of our staff.

West Café will be open for shorter hours to begin with and we will let you know when this changes. Opening hours will be 10am-2pm, Monday to Friday.

For the first two weeks of opening, we are running a very special offer where you can get any hot drink for £1!

As you would have expected, there will be changes to how West Café operates. These changes are outlined below:

  • A one-way system will be in operation, which is clearly marked out for you to follow
  • Take-away products available only at the moment. We will still be offering a wide range of sandwiches, paninis, salads, cakes and other snacks, as well as hot and cold drinks.
  • Card payments only, we are going cashless

We ask you to:

  • Wear a face mask while you’re in West Café
  • Clean your hands with the anti-bacterial gel offered upon entry
  • Keep 2m distance from other customers and staff; we have placed floor markings to help with this

In return, our staff are:

  • Wearing the correct protection and face masks
  • Regularly washing hands
  • Regularly cleaning surfaces
  • Working extremely hard to ensure West Café remains clean to ensure the safety of health of our customers and fellow staff
  • Happy to help with any questions you may have


We look forward to seeing you next Wednesday!
