Delightful café area with outside terrace seating for when the sun shins and indoor options for those chillier days. Dogs are welcome within the upstairs seating area. We can cater for groups of walkers, cyclists and coach parties, serving breakfasts lunches and afternoon teas. An ideal place to meet your friends and colleagues. Watch the world go by through the magnificent gothic windows and enjoy the wonderful ambience of this fabulous building or enjoy the lovely view of the Hosemarket from outside on the terrace when the sun shines. Offering weekly specials as well as an appetising menu, the café offers local Lincolnshire produce within its tasty homemade dishes. We will cater for special requirements and always try to have gluten free cake available.

Fascinating place. Community project at its best. Opened in 2011. Incorporating library, local history exhibition and good value tea room. All assisted by volunteers. Well worth a visit. Tea and scones recommended.

Visited today with a group of 6. Quick friendly service and delicious home cooked food. Believe it is run by volunteers. Only one small negative the soup was far to hot, almost at boiling point but once cooled enough to eat it was very tasty.

I have visited a few times & have always found the service on offer really good. Good espresso & cake, what more could a hungry cyclist ask for when exploring the local area? Will return.

I have been using the Heritage Centre since it was first opened, and more and more I invite clients to join me there for a coffee and meet. Always well looked after by Stephanie's and Penny's team.

Lovely setting with the sun shining down on the patio area. Art exhibition on. Food nice but service a tad slow. Suggest the venue reconsider the advertising hoardings on the railings - does seem to spoil the view to and from the patio area. Lovely...More
