Enjoy coffee, breakfast, sandwiches and pastries in our café, or fresh hot dishes, pizzas, salads and family meal deals in our bistro.


There’s lots to do and see at the museum—when it’s time for a break, take a seat in the Warehouse Café and grab a bite to eat. We serve hot and cold drinks, sandwiches, breakfast bites, hot pastries, cakes and snacks.

Our new bistro on the first floor offers a range of dishes cooked from the finest seasonal ingredients sourced from across the North West. We’ve taken inspiration from the city's industrial heritage, with the design featuring exposed brickwork, a stripped timber counter and modern grey hues for the tiles and floor. We’ve also introduced table service, preparing our dishes to order.

We've something for every taste and budget, from hearty pies and healthy salads for the grown-ups, to fish and chips and pizzas for the kids. Family offers are available daily, and we also offer a dedicated children's menu

Our emphasis on high quality, locally sourced ingredients means that our menu changes on a regular basis.
