The Box Kitchen & Bar

The Box Kitchen & Bar

From warming coffee and homemade cakes to tasty meals made from locally sourced ingredients, all served beneath a flotilla of giant ship's figureheads, The Box Kitchen & Bar is a great place for brunch, lunch or a snack, either while you're visiting our galleries and exhibitions or as a destination in its own right.

Tables are on a first come, first served basis and orders are taken at the bar. Our current opening hours are 10am-4pm Tuesday-Sunday and selected bank holidays (last orders for food at 3pm) and we look forward to welcoming you.
