Thanks for filling in a Library You Said We Did card a few weeks ago – my apologies for the delay in this reply finding its way to you. I’m delighted to hear that you love the Martyrs Research Reading Room so much – we like it too.
I can’t say 100% that hot drinks will never be allowed in the reading room but for the time being we have no plans to change the current policy. Given the proximity of the foyer where drinks are allowed and the potential damage that could be caused in the event of spillages within the reading room, we believe the current arrangement is appropriate.
Thanks again for the comments and I hope that you continue to enjoy using the room despite not being able to have your coffee at your desk.
