About Us

Designs Café has been open since 1996 and gained the reputation for being the place to meet your friends, enjoy good food and coffee, soak up the friendly informal atmosphere and discuss life. ...

We take the current pandemic situation, personal hygiene and social distancing extremely seriously, and the well-being of our Customers and Our Team are of paramount importance. With respect, we hope that you will too, and ask for courtesy and tolerance at all times.


We have put many tables outdoors in the beautiful garden, and spaced the indoor tables with screens between them.

We hope as always that you will enjoy what we have on offer. We are a small business and are always approachable if you have thoughts or ideas to help us improve.

Our ethos has always been to use the best affordable ingredients, free range and organic wherever possible, to minimise the use of additives and preservatives, and to produce simple, tasty, affordable home cooked food.
