Visit Centenary Lounge Worcester Today

Have you ever been to Centenary Lounge Worcester? An amazing award-winning, unique collection of café-tearooms and vendors. They are passionate about celebrating the history of GWR, Art Deco and the 1930s.

This was a company, style and era all known for the highest quality of design, ambience, standards of service and wonderful attention to detail – perfectly reflecting our values. Their first café opened in 2009 at Birmingham Moor Street, on the centennial anniversary of the station’s opening by the Great Western Railway (GWR), hence the name ‘Centenary Lounge’.

Their ground floor café has been refurbished in the beautiful Art Deco-style we are passionate about and renowned for, whilst a small area of Victorian tiles behind the bar has been restored, continuing to provide you with an authentic experience of what it was like in the bygone years of Britain’s railways, its definitely the place to be!

Then its time to wind your way up the stunning sweeping staircase, an architectural feature inspired by the grand style of the Queen Mary ocean liner, to the first-floor tearoom. They honoured the building’s Georgian heritage, featuring the stunning original 1730s original wall panels and fireplace, to keep it with the decor, design and history.

Within their grand five storey building you will find the Centenary Lounge headquarters as well as two further rooms complete with all original features, including another Georgian fireplace. These two rooms can be hired out for private events for up to 15 people and are accessed via the original Georgian staircase at the back of the building.

Sample their sophisticated three-course menu and light elevenses menu, both designed by Head Chef, Elson Castro who was classically trained by two Michelin starred chefs. With exquisite attention to detail, Elson has created authentic dishes inspired by the original 1930s GWR Railway Dining Car menus, including classic English and continental dishes.
