The Box Kitchen & Bar

The Box Kitchen & Bar is a dining experience that will make you want to return time and time again.

From delicious coffee and homemade cakes to unique dining experiences beneath a flotilla of giant ship's figureheads, our menu celebrates both classic flavours and creative dishes.

Stop for lunch while you experience the galleries and exhibitions at The Box, or why not treat yourself to a warming drink and cake during the colder days?

Tables are on a first come, first served basis and orders are taken at the bar. We look forward to welcoming you. Our current opening hours are 10am-5pm Tuesday-Sunday and Bank Holiday Mondays.
