The Old Bank Cafe

Bolton Hospice opened a new shop and café in April 2018 at the old HSBC bank, Hillview Road, Astley Bridge (next to ASDA).

The café is open 7 days a week and serves speciality tea & coffee, breakfast & light lunches and delicious cakes. Plus there's free Wi-Fi for customers making it the perfect place for a working lunch or meeting. We also pride ourselves on being a breastfeeding friendly cafe, and have even installed a potty in our toilet for smaller customers.
