The Remembrance Centre Restaurant & Coffee Shop


Enjoy a mouth-watering lunch or rest mid afternoon with a refreshing 'cuppa' and a slice of home-made cake in either of the two eateries, the Restaurant and the Coffee Shop, where the food and drink served are freshly prepared by their onsite chefs. Dogs are welcome at the coffee shop.


The Restaurant, located in the Remembrance Centre, is open between 9am and 4.30pm daily. 

Plan your visit over a hearty, freshly-prepared breakfast, or enjoy a  tasty lunch menu including homemade soup, roast lunches, hot dishes of the day, vegetarian options and a fresh salad bar. 

Afternoon tea is available from 2pm, along with a selection of hot and cold snacks. A variety of beverages are available to purchase including fresh bean to cup coffee, fragrant teas and wide selection of chilled beverages. Children's options are available.


The fresh coffee beans used in the Coffee Shop, located in Heroes' Square, are hand roasted in Staffordshire by our coffee supplier Chartley Coffee. As well as serving a range of barista crafted coffees and iced drinks, a variety of snacks and sweet treats are available to purchase in the Coffee Shop. Dog-friendly.

100% of the proceeds from the Restaurant and Coffee Shop support the work of the Arboretum.
