Cafe at 20-21

The café at 20-21 is open. We have a layout and system in place to help keep staff and visitors as safe as possible, following the current guidelines.

We have reduced our capacity, and social distancing measures are in place. And of course there’s plenty of seating in our outdoor area. We’re happy to take bookings and orders in advance on 01724 297078.

While walk-ups are welcome, you may find that you have to queue outside to be admitted. All customers will have to leave their contact details for NHS Test & Trace.

Come along and enjoy good quality meals and Ruth’s prizewinning home made cakes and bakes in our 5 star hygiene rated café. We’re looking forward welcoming you back!

Cakes and Bakes in the 20-21 Cafe

Ruth, our Catering Supervisor is well known in the area for her scrumptious cakes and bakes. Her prizewinning recipes have deservedly given our gallery café a great reputation. When you visit why not treat yourself to her freshly baked scones, either just with butter and jam, or go all out with Rodda’s Clotted Cream? Enjoy with our speciality tea or coffee. Delicious!
