Eating & Drinking



Where possible all our food is locally sourced from small suppliers and freshly prepared, our independent kitchen is a vibrant, informal and friendly eating-place. One of the joys of being a self-sufficient business is that we can offer our diners, drinkers and audiences alike a truly tailor-made experience. For example, if you are dining with us before a show, we’ll make sure that the food is served in plenty of time, you can even order your desserts before the show and enjoy them during the interval.

Food is available Tuesday to Saturday, 12pm - 2.30pm and Wednesday to Saturday, 5pm – 8.30pm. In addition to these opening times, from Friday 30 November 2018 to Sunday 6 January 2019 we will also be serving food before each afternoon and evening performance of Jack and the Beanstalk. Please see below for our panto food menu. During this period we will only be serving the Jack and the Beanstalk menu and the full menu will resume on 11 January 2019.
