Welcoming, affordable and tasty - you can't go wrong
Bantock Park Café is one of my favourite places to go out for lunch in Wolverhampton, so I've always been surprised by how little you can find out about it online. Be it a relaxed, drawn-out weekend lunch with family, or a lovely place to meet friends during the week, this café is the place I often turn to.

As a student, the price of anything is of enormous interest to me – almost to the point of obsession, I admit – so personally this is one of the first things I like to find out about places. Even in my miserly opinion, the prices at this café are very reasonable: you can enjoy a very filling meal and a drink for around £6. If I had to choose, I'd recommend the feta, caramelised onion and hummus pitta, and also the jacket potatoes (this sounds boring, but a really good jacket potato is GREAT if you can find one).

The food is consistently tasty and the menu is varied enough to cater to a wide range of dietary requirements – if it is able to satisfy my vegetarian, gluten-free, onion-intolerant mother, then there is certainly something for everyone.

The staff are always friendly and there are places to sit inside and out. Relatively recently, the café was expanded, which transformed a rather dark library into more dining space. This new area is lovely and bright – though it can get pretty stuffy in the summer, so you're generally better to nab a seat outside on warmer days if you can.

This café really feels like a place for the community. Bantock Park's history gives you a strong sense of connecting with Wolverhampton's past, and anyone of any age is made to feel welcome here.

There's a useful website with information about the park, the house, and any events coming up, which you can check out here:

This website is also promising a page about Bantock Park Café soon, where you will be able to find additional information.
