Eating & Drinking



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. Value for money is at the heart of our Kitchen & Bar, so we promise our food and drink menus will be offered at a reasonable price. 

Food is available Tuesday to Saturday, 12pm - 2.30pm and Wednesday to Saturday, 5pm – 8.30pm. 

During Newbury Spring Festival (12 - 26 May) we will also be open on Monday 12pm - 2.30pm and Tuesday 5pm - 8.30pm.

Outside of Kitchen hours, our bar is open seven days a week and you can grab a hot coffee or speciality tea. 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. 

Like setting the theatre lights, we know that getting the atmosphere right for eating and drinking is really important. We pride ourselves on offering the best customer experience we can and we look forward to extending a warm welcome to you soon!
