welcome to our cool cafe at the Roman circus centre!
Today (7th September), the Trust’s new cafe at the Roman circus centre has been open for two weeks. So far, customer feedback about the cafe has been very positive, and we already have some regular customers! Customers can sit indoors, in our spacious and light room of 1937, or at our outdoor tables overlooking the circus excavation site where they can sit and admire the avenue of mature trees. The circus centre, site and excavation site are attracting interested visitors.
The cafe is staffed by Gemma and Nathan, and they say that they are both enjoying their work in the cafe. Gemma is a history graduate and Nathan is an archaeology undergraduate so, if you want good conversation as well as friendly service and freshly-ground coffee, then our cafe is the place to be…
Our cakes are currently supplied by a local cake-maker, although we will soon be selling our own home-made cakes, plus fresh sandwiches. The cafe sells all organic, Fair Trade tea, hot chocolate and freshly-ground coffee, ranging from a tiny espresso through cafe latte, cappuccino, Americano, etc to a large coffee, and we can replace milk with soya milk as required.
The circus centre and cafe are open every day (not Sunday), from 10.00am to 4.00pm. Free guided tours of the circus centre, excavation site and starting-gates are available on Saturdays, on request.
We look forward to seeing you!
