Mega Brunch Returns! | BetaCafe

This month in the BetaCafe we have some exciting new things!

Mega Brunch is a full brunch menu that is available the first weekend of this month. The menu will consist of pancakes, breakfast sliders, topped ciabattas and bagels!
The months Mega Brunch will be on the 4th+5th August from 8:00 until 13:00, if you missed out last month come and give it a try. Every other weekend egg or/and bacon sandwiches will be available also from 8:00-13:00.

There will also be the introduction of the BetaCafe afternoon tea deal available between 2pm and 4pm every day! This deal includes any cake/cookie and any tea including teapigs.

PIZZA NIGHTS are now only on Thursdays from 6-9pm.

Many of you will have noticed we have switched from plastic water bottles to glass water bottles. This is just one more step to becoming a plastic free cafe. Both waters now come in two sizes, small and large at £1.00 and £2.00. All we ask is that you keep them off of the mats and floors, the best place to keep them will be on top of the cubby holes in the middle of the centre. Feel free to borrow a sharpie if you want to write your name on it!

We apologise for the low number of fizzy drinks at the moment as our supplier is low on stock due to CO2 shortage.



Bouldering Club | GetClimbing!

Although normal NICAS and NIBAS sessions are on hold until September, we are running bouldering and climbing club sessions every week during the summer break.

You can just come for funsies, or, use these sessions to catch up on, or get ahead with your NICAS and NIBAS levels:

  • Skills
  • Techniques
  • Logbook sign offs

All sessions are taken by our NICAS and BAS approved instructors, so every climb counts! Click here to learn more!


Round 4 | SBL18

Jason Pickles was in da haus setting, and in such hot conditions! He did his best to set blocs that would be climbable whilst also dealing with the adverse conditions, throwing in big powerful moves and nice big holds.
