About Loungers

About Us

The Lounges are informal neighbourhood café/bars, open all day every day, where families, friends, and local residents can come for a coffee, or a drink or something to eat in a relaxed and comfortable environment. The menu is available all day and offers a wide range of dishes including our famous breakfasts and burgers an eclectic array of tapas, sandwiches and panini, and a variety of fuller dishes, prepared using great quality fresh produce.

There is an extensive selection of coffee and loose-leaf teas, cakes & pastries, freshly squeezed juice and a great selection of wines, draught beers and cocktails. The interiors are comfortable, inviting and a bit eccentric with a strong use of reclaimed and antique furniture and fittings. The photos, the great majority of which feature Dave's grandparents and our very own MD, are fun, distinctive, and sometimes a little weird. There is also a variety of board games for children and adults, daily newspapers, free Wi-Fi, highchairs and a free neighbourhood book swap facility where customers can bring in an old book and swap it for one in our bookcase.

The Future of Lounging...

Since that small, quiet start in Bristol back in 2002, Loungers have taken the café bar world by storm, and are now to be found all over the country. There are around fifty Lounges these days, and we are opening about twenty more every year: there is no shortage of progression and opportunities with a group that is growing that quickly!

We have scooped a host of awards including the R200 'Operator of the Year', the M&C Report's 'Retailers' Retailer of the Year', and most recently won the prestigious 'Best Pub & Bar Award' at the Cateys. We can't keep growing without some great new talent though - and hopefully that's where you come in!
