Café opening - Click here to see our Covid 19 Risk Assessment
Great news! The ACT Centre café re-opens for business on Monday August 3rd. We would love to welcome customers old and new.
We will be open between 10.00 and 4.00pm initially and are asking people to book their table on 01263 733385. We would also be very grateful if people could use contactless payments. As with other cafes and restaurants we are following government guidelines and taking the names and phone numbers of everyone who visits the centre.
The menu will be limited to start with, but will include our popular daily specials at a price of £7.50 for two courses. We are working on an exciting new menu which will be introduced as we widen our opening hours over the coming weeks.
Our centre is for everyone, so please come and see what we have to offer. Over recent months we have been busy delivering meals to people’s homes – and we will continue to do this for people who would like a hot meal at lunchtime. We have also introduced take away fish and chips on a Friday which can be collected from the centre, as well as a range of take away cakes and whippy ice creams from the special takeaway door!
We are offering a limited lunch menu to start with:
Home Delivery Service
We will continue to deliver lunches and teas for those people who would prefer to eat in their own homes and do not yet feel ready to return to the centre. We are currently delivering about 200 meals per week. Please call Alison on 01263 733385 if you would like to order meals to be delivered.
Lunch club members pay £6.00 for their meal which is 2 courses (the price includes delivery).
We are also delivering a tea option for £4.00 which we deliver with the lunch. This includes a sandwich, a savoury, cake and a drink.
Anyone in the community can order a lunch though and the cost is £7.50 for 2 courses including delivery. We deliver to Aylsham and the surrounding villages, which currently include Buxton, Swanton Abbott, Tuttington, Erpingham, Marsham, Hevingham and Cawston. We are planning to deliver in the North Walsham area if there is enough demand. Please call Alison on 01263 733385 if you would like to know more or fill in a form at the bottom of this page.
There are lots of people who order lunch for just one day a week and some who have lunch every day.
Our normal service before the lockdown was as follows (we hope that we will be able to return to this at some point):
Our cafe at the ACT Centre is open for everyone to enjoy. We offer home cooked food and a very warm welcome. There is plenty of parking just outside the door, and dogs are welcome too.
Our main menu offers a wide selection of hot and cold food. We also offer a take away service, and you can phone through your orders in advance when you are in a hurry. All dietary requirements are catered for.
We offer freshly cooked two course lunch specials for £7.50. There is something different every day, but on Wednesdays we serve a roast dinner and on Fridays we serve fish and chips.
We offer a wide variety of hot and cold food; including salads, baked potatoes (various fillings) hot sausage rolls and toasted sandwiches, freshly made sandwiches and rolls and hot delicious soups made with fresh ingredients.
Our choice of home made cakes and scones includes delicious carrot cake, flapjack, fruit shortbread, ginger cake and chocolate brownies.
We offer catering for functions such as children’s parties, special occasions and funerals. There is a large function room for hire here at the centre, but we can deliver outside catering for your event as well. We can provide you with sample menus, but also offer a bespoke service to meet your individual needs. Please contact Liz, our catering manager, who will be happy to discuss your requirements, on 01263 733385.
