Ikon gallery and bar

First things first, what a beautiful building,  a victorian school house which has been converted  to a wonderful gallery by the addition of uber modern glass stairways and glass flooring upstairs but  maintains all the  old schoolhouse charm  at the same time. Light, bright, small enough to enjoy without missing any exhibits but large enough to  feel you’ve had a good mooch  and got your dose of culture in an hour, this is a gallery I shall be heading to on a regular basis. A lovely place to finish your tour of Ikon gallery is the café bar,   this small bar has ample outdoor seating,  a good menu and  friendly staff. 


   My take on Monet girl behind a bar.

We enjoyed a few glasses of wine here and some tasty nibbles but the full menu looks great and so many people were enthusing about the breakfasts at Cafe Opus I think I will have to visit again very soon.
Simple decore which is reminiscent  of a 1970s living room and not the most comfy of seats this little bar is the perfect end destination  of a tour of Ikon gallery and overlooking the square you could enjoy your drinks outside whilst people watching.

                  View of the square.

Being part of the Opus group you can use your Opus loyalty card here too.

A completely different  vibe to Bar Opus , Cafe Opus is relaxed and  family friendly,  the menu offers 3 course children’s menu for £6.50 and 5% of the money they take goes towards Ikon Gallery so you can feel good when you are enjoying a fish finger sandwich. Take the family and surprise  them with the  unique singing elevator, I know I’ve never experienced  anything quite like it!
