Food and drink

Our vibrant and friendly Café Bar is the perfect place for a tasty bite and a drink when you're out and about in town, or before heading in to see a film or show with us. Pop in to see our daily selection of treats and follow us on social media to see what seasonal specials we're serving up.

By stopping by our Café Bar you will be supporting the Corn Exchange – every purchase you make helps us to deliver the range of shows, classes and events for all of the community.

Did you know that you can receive a 25p discount when you bring your own reusable cups for your hot tea or coffee. If you’re looking for something stronger, we have a great selection of craft distilled spirits, local ales from West Berkshire Brewery, an ever-evolving selection of wines and of course, some prosecco for those special occasions.

Autumn Drinks

This autumn we have a selection of seasonal drinks making their return with our Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate, Chai Latte and for something extra, you can spice up your drink with our range of syrups with chai, hazelnut and pumpkin spice and you can add a shot of espresso, whipped cream and toasted marshmallows!
