More tasty investment at the Metrodome

Rigby Café and Lounge at the Metrodome Leisure Complex in Barnsley has reopened after a major refurbishment.

The Café and Lounge formerly known as Rigby’s is almost unrecognisable after it has been given a contemporary makeover with brand new furniture and layout to increase capacity in line with customer demand.

The venue has benefitted from a new partition wall and bar to house private functions to enable catering for up to 200 people; new wooden floors have been laid throughout; and complimentary WIFI is now offered – whilst a new state-of-the-art adaptive lighting system has been installed which helps create the perfect ambiance for any event.

The venue will now offer both a Café and Lounge format to suit the requirements of every type of customer.

As well as eat-in options, the Café will boast a ‘Grab and Go’ facility for those wanting a quick coffee and freshly made sandwich or panini to takeaway. (Monday – Friday 9:30am – 3pm, Saturday 11am – 3pm).

The Lounge will offer traditional and contemporary culinary delights with a ‘2 for £10’ deal which will include sizzling plates, homemade pie, hunters chicken, pastas, flame grilled burgers and a selection of vegetarian dishes. (Mon – Fri 3pm – 8.30pm).

The venue will also continue to offer its popular Sunday Carvery between noon and 3pm every week.

Michael Hirst, trading operations manager for BPL who run the venue said: “The Rigby team is extremely excited about the opening of the new look Rigby Café and Lounge and we hope our customers are too.

“The main reason for the development was to increase the use of the venue for functions from birthdays to weddings. We can now offer a multitude of different options for occasions, with a private bar, bespoke lighting schemes, and a variety of menus from finger buffets, canapés and traditional pie and pea suppers to bespoke tailor-made dinner menus.

“Every function will also benefit from a dedicated Events Co-ordinator who will ensure everything runs smoothly from the planning stages right through to the event itself.”

Rigby Café and Lounge has also just received a five star Food Hygiene Rating accredited by Environmental Health.

Michael concludes: “We are delighted to have received the highest possible rating for our food hygiene. We pride ourselves on our freshly cooked dishes.”
