Centenary Lounge started with a first bistro café in Birmingham Moor Street Station in 2009. The business name honours the centennial anniversary of the station; opened by the Great Western Railway in 1909. In 2012, Centenary Lounge opened a refreshment kiosk at Snow Hill Station in Birmingham. This was the first replication of an early Art Deco fruit stall, which took inspiration from an Empire Fruit Stall at Paddington Station circa 1927.
Relive the style, glamour and sophistication of the golden age of travel as Centenary Lounge pay homage to GWR – the Great Western Railway; within which Worcester and Worcestershire played a crucial role for more than 100 years. A stunning recreation of a 1930s Art Deco Bistro that tastefully recaptures the décor of a First Class period railway buffet at its very best.
The building on Foregate Street was built around 1730; although there is evidence of stone, brick and other materials from the 1600’s being used in its construction. As a Grade II Listed building, a careful and extensive plan of refurbishment has given new life to this previously unloved city centre structure.
Centenary Lounge are passionate about serving a carefully chosen menu of freshly prepared food and drink. With a love to support local suppliers and – from the Worcester area – the team have brought together producers of smoked salmon, smoked duck, charcuterie, bread, salt, ice cream, cider, beer & gin.
Centenary Lounges offer breakfast, lunch and dinner, morning coffees, later cocktails and a quick snack service for those ‘on the go’. Every one of their English afternoon teas is a work of art and a social occasion to be savoured.
