Coming to see a show? Make a night of it and enjoy a bite to eat and a drink in our cafe bar

'Running along an entire side of the building, with floor-to-ceiling windows at either end — and the beautiful wood-panelled external curve of the theatre’s auditorium suspended beside it — this is a dramatic playhouse watering hole. In summer, punters sprawl around the landscaped terraces beyond.'
Evening Standard, Go London

From world famous Caravan coffee and pastries in the mornings to fresh sandwiches, salads and soups, all made onsite, and sweet treats and cakes in the afternoon, our Cafe Bar is open throughout the day stocking a wide variety of unique, quality products. We also have al fresco seating available on our decking outside the theatre.

Joining us pre-show? Our delicious selection of light meals, including sandwiches, sausage rolls and salads, is available into the evening. Choose a glass of wine from our carefully curated menu, a craft beer from Crate Brewery or a specialist gin and tonic from The Gin Bar. We have a range of interval treats from Jude's Ice Cream and and Portlebay Popcorn. And don't forget to pre-order your interval drinks to avoid the queues.

The night doesn't end when the curtain falls - our bar remains after the performance, with 10% off your first drink on presentation of your ticket.
