New Café Bar comes to West Bromwich!

The Public are pleased to announce that from Wednesday 1 December, it will be launching the Pink Tank Café Bar on the ground floor.

The new café bar will be run by The Public for all its visitors. Currently enjoyed by over 40% of visitors to the West Bromwich arts centre, the new look café bar is set to enhance the visitor experience for those looking for high quality food and drink in a relaxed environment.

Marc Warde, Managing Director from Couture said,

“We have been based at The Public since the building partially opened in 2008 and have been proud to have been involved in such a great project. Following a new business model we have been refocusing our activities over the last quarter and have decided to move away from some outlets and expand operations near our London and Manchester bases. We have thoroughly enjoyed our time in the area and will be sad to be leaving West Bromwich and wish The Public and Pink Tank every success for the future.”

Linda Saunders, Managing Director of The Public said,

“We have enjoyed great success and received outstanding feedback from visitors over the last year, and by the end of December we anticipate that around 140,000 people will have come into West Bromwich to enjoy our diverse activities including exhibitions, events, workshops, conference facilities and the café on the ground floor.

The launch of Pink Tank Café Bar is very much a continuation of this success and the next stage of our development as a business. Whilst we will be sad to see Couture leave, we are very excited to be opening the new look Pink Tank Café Bar and look forward to welcoming customers old and new to an important area of The Public experience.”

“The Pink Tank Café Bar will continue to emphasise quality, value and service feature locally-sourced ingredients. As a result of feedback from our customers, we are expanding our range to include a great selection of freshly prepared hot and cold snacks, paninis, breakfasts and refreshments, offering great value for money. Already a popular choice at lunchtime, The Public will not only continue to provide a relaxed environment for people looking for quality lunchtime experience, but also offer a fantastic new menu for conference bookers.”

As part of the launch, from Wednesday 1 to Sunday 5 December The Public are inviting people to join them for a free hot drink (excluding speciality drinks) at the new Pink Tank Café Bar and explore some of the great exhibitions and activities on offer including the Martin Parr’s, Black Country Stories, and the fabulous Winter Grotto. To take part in the offer, simply visit and download the free voucher, or pick up the latest copy of Go Public, due out 1 December for other great offers.

Please Note: The café on the ground floor of The Public will be closed on Sunday 28th, Monday 29th and Tuesday 30th for refurbishment.

On Wednesday 1st December, the café will be re-opening under the management of The Public.
