Where can I take my dog in the Hub?

Since our refurbishment and Cafebar extension we are now able to welcome well- behaved dogs and their owners to eat and drink in the café atrium and on the outdoor jetty.

Please keep your dog on a lead at all times and refrain from letting them on the sofas. During busy periods, if the atrium is full, we kindly ask you do not move in to the main area of the café. Remember not everyone loves dogs. If your dog is nervous around others we would recommend visiting during quieter periods.

Dogs are not permitted in the main café area, shop, workshop, studio or galleries. Assistance dogs are welcome everywhere
