The NVA CaféBar - situated above the NVA lobby - is the perfect spot for people watching over a fine coffee, or playing games with a pint and a pizza toastie!

Food and Drink

Click here to see our Food, Drink and Games menu.

We love our toast, from the simple satisfaction of a Cheese Toastie to the adventurous Nacho Toastie, but it’s not the only thing we do! We offer a full range of freshly ground coffees, and a selection of teas, cakes, and snacks for your delight.
If it’s time for something stronger, we’ve got you covered there too: we stock local, continental, and craft ales and lagers, as well as spirits, wines, and ciders.

Gluten free options are available by request, please contact us ahead of your visit if you have any specific dietary requirements.

Fun and games

The NVA CaféBar has consoles and games galore for you to play on whilst you enjoy your food and drink. Don't worry if the game you want isn't out, consult our constantly evolving game menu to find what you need. If you're not sure what to play, just ask and we’ll be happy to recommend something. Oh, and as everything is free to play, you don't need to worry about the pennies!

Not only that, but we also have a great selection of classic and modern board games.
