The Beaney café is the perfect place to relax, unwind and contemplate.

Whether you are stopping by for your morning Espresso, utilising the Free Wi-fi or enjoying lunch with your friends and family, customers are able to enjoy an ever-changing menu of soups, cream teas, toasted Paninis, sandwiches and locally produced cakes and sweets.

The Beaney Cafe is located in the centre of the museum on the ground floor adjacent to the main information desk. A selection of the museum’s vintage bikes adorn the walls and visitors can also admire the fabulous Museumaker window designed by artist Laura Thomas to mark the reopening of the Beaney in 2012.
