Eating & Drinking



We are delighted to announce our new tasty menus for the Kitchen and Bar from our Head Chef, Michelle Charles.

We love the excited atmosphere that our wonderful audiences bring to our busy arts centre. For some time, we’ve been finding ways to offer you more; to make this a beautiful venue you can really enjoy day and night, and whether you are attending an event or not. Why not take a look at our menu before your visit? Soon we’ll be launching a children’s menu too.

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

The heritage of our iconic Newbury building is something we take pride in maintaining and during the summer of 2015 we worked with designers to completely refurbish the front of house spaces, bringing out some of the original character, improving some practicalities and replacing the fittings and furnishings.

We will be as creative with the food as we are on stage, and all our dishes will be freshly prepared and using local suppliers where possible. Our Head Chef has hand-selected the produce from carefully selected suppliers to give you an high quality experience without breaking the bank.

One of the joys of being an independent 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.

The food offer is to complement the bar service we have been working on over the last two years to improve and get right. With a new food menu we have a new selection of wines on offer, a wider selection of draught beers and lagers as well local ales from West Berkshire Brewery. We, of course, have a bottle of sparkly stuff or two for those special occasions. Take a look at our Drinks Menu and Wine List. 

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! 

Our menus can be downloaded below, please do take a look.

At the entrance of New Greenham Arts there is a small bar, which doubles up as the box office, perfect for purchasing a drink to take into the auditorium while collecting your tickets.

We also have a selection of sweets and ice cream available from the auditorium entrance.


The fully licensed New Greenham Tandoori Restaurant serves the finest Indian Cuisine to the Newbury and Thatcham areas. Housed within the New Greenham Arts Centre, the restaurant is the perfect place for a meal before or after going to the theatre.
