Primarily a cinema and arts venue, City Screen also has a very popular café serving cakes, hot drinks, sandwiches, soups and a selection of light meals. There are plenty of options for vegetarians. It has just benefited from refurbishment, so there are now more tables than ever and there’s usually space for buggies. It can get very busy at peak times.
Best for – Coffee and cake in relaxed surroundings or a lunch with riverside views. The lack of kids’ menu is disappointing but their chips are a crowd-pleaser whatever your age.
