Recreations Crockery on TV!

We were delighted to see our Recreations crockery featured on Channel 4’s Amazing Spaces – Shed of the Year. We think our crockery would enliven any shed or cosy space.

Not only did William Hardie the presenter mention the GWR crockery on television, he also chose to have his cup of coffee from the replica mug – he sure has great taste we say!

We would also like to welcome a new retailer on board joining our list of proud stockists of the range, Fawley Hill Museum.

The weather is getting well and truly chilly, what with winds, rain and red skies at noon. Just the excuse to warm up with one of our autumnal drinks.

We’re particularly excited about our new blueberry muffin flavoured white hot chocolate! Come in and try it, you won’t be disappointed.

And for a happy Halloween, our homemade Spicy Pumpkin Soup will be available once again to keep you warm on the spooky day.

As Christmas approaches, we will of course be bringing back our popular Christmas menu. Sign up for our newsletter for details.

Meanwhile, stay warm!

Centenary Lounge is Rated Among ‘Top Hot Chocolate Stops’ in Birmingham

hot-chocWe’ve been rated the fifth best place to stop for Hot Chocolate in the whole of Birmingham!

The Scene Birmingham website recently published its list of the top six ‘hot chocolate stops‘ in Brum and we’re very chuffed to be on the list.

Scene describe us as ‘Birmingham’s Art Deco retreat with beautiful architecture and character that creates a cultured atmosphere for you’ – we couldn’t agree more! They give a special mention to our Flavoured Hot Chocolate which has marshmallows, Belgian chocolate curls, cream and a choice of mint, hazelnut, caramel, praline and cherry. ‘Mmm,’ is their verdict, and we think yours will be too!

Browse our hot drinks menu, including hot chocolate as well as coffees, teas and liqueur coffees and hot chocolates.
