The Russell-Cotes Café serves a delicious range of light lunches, teas, coffees, and cakes. 

Café at the Museum opening times are 10am – 4.30pm Tuesdays – Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays

Situated in the light and airy modern wing of the museum, the Café is the perfect place to enjoy some refreshments, surrounded by art exhibited in the Café Gallery.

All profits from the Café go directly to the charity – every cup of tea and slice of cake you enjoy helps us to preserve this unique and beautiful piece of Bournemouth’s heritage.
