The Design Museum Café is a beautiful, unusual environment for relaxation and discussion. The 42-seat café faces
out towards Michael Hopkins's Round Building and in summer the doors slide open to provide extra seating on the
terrace. Designed by Corin Mellor the café is itself a fine example of informal modern dining style, equipped with
the best David Mellor tableware.
The café serves delicious lunches using mainly local produce as well as specialist teas, coffee
and an irresistible selection of homemade cakes. The menu changes daily according to the season.
The Round Building has received numerous architectural and countryside awards, including the
BBC Design Prize. Free of charge guided tours of the factory providing an overview of the company, building and how David Mellor cutlery is made are available on Saturdays and Sundays at 3pm.
