Food & Drink

Our Café is open Monday - Saturday, 10am – Showtime or until 4:30pm on non-show days.

The Café will remain open for the interval of any applicable shows.

There is no requirement to book a table in advance and you don't need to be coming to see a show to come in during the day, just come on in!

Enjoy a selection of hot and cold drinks, as well as snacks and light meals, homemade sandwiches, jacket potatoes, and freshly toasted paninis. There is also a daily selection of croissants, cakes, and other baked goods, with vegan and gluten free options available.

Perfect to meet friends and family in town, or log in to our free WIFI and ‘work from home’ with us! 

The Riverside Garden at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre

Our riverside terrace garden is also a beautiful spot to stop on walks, and well-behaved dogs are more than welcome in the garden!

We are also now offering takeaways for those on the go, so even if you’re in a rush, you can still swing by and pick up something delicious!
