Even though there have been countless opportunities for me to do so, this was my first visit to the place. A mixed arts space, the complex includes a range of flexible performance spaces. At the front, there is a spacious and bright cafe, which I found full to brimming with lunchers, today.It’s table service, so I took a seat and considered the menu. My eye was caught by their specials board, which offered broccoli and coriander soup and a roast chicken, pear and walnut salad. I ordered them both from the friendly waitress.
The soup arrived accompanied by good looking bread. It had a good chilli kick to it, but was a little thin, texture-wise. It was a promising opener, though.The main course salad was very good. It combined a number of different elements and brought them together in a well-balanced dish. The chicken was plentiful and delicious. I was really pleased with it.
So overall, I was glad to have finally visited the Storytelling Centre and was impressed with their cafe. It’s a lovely space, the welcome is warm and the food on offer is delivered to a very good standard. I’d be happy to visit again and would recommend you pop in next time you’re in the neighbourhood.
