About our Cafe

cafeOur cafe is not for hire, but is an integral part of booking a room with us.

A warm, relaxing environment in which your guests can wait,

and have a coffee and get out from the cold.

The space has been used in the past as an exhibition area for local artists and photographers, owing to the vast amount of natural light which floods the area.

The Cafe has mosaic artwork of a Northumbrian Coble by Richard Flynn, a well known artist in the area. The piece on display in the centre used to be in Blyth Leisure Centre and was brought here when the Centre was renovated.
