Cafe, Bar & Shop
Our cafe is open 7 days a week. Customers can choose to sit in the cafe, in the lounge, under the terrace, on the lawn or to take away. Catering can also be provided in our meeting rooms and in the Connectors Workspace.
Our Connectors Workspace is a large open plan, airy co-working workspace within Crichton Central for members. It provides a lovely setting for mobile workers and for anyone who wants an alternative to working from home.
Lounge, Lawn & Outdoor Terrace
Our lounge offers a comfy spot to enjoy a coffee and catch up with a friend or colleague by day and doubles as a live entertainment venue for small functions and events in the evening. Our lawn also plays host to live performances throughout the year.
Crichton Central has four bookable rooms including three meeting rooms and Flexispace suitable for private meetings, interviews, training sessions and workshops.
Live. Streamed. Hybrid.

We are delighted to say that we have added a new Changing Places Toilet to the map in the South of Scotland here at Crichton Central. The building is accessible throughout and parking for blue badge holders is conveniently located just outside the building.
