The most theatrical café and bar in Bristol!

Make yourself at home in the beautiful surroundings of the Bristol Old Vic’s award-winning foyer and soak up some of that exciting pre-show atmosphere, any time of day.

With mouth-watering pastries to accompany your morning coffee, seasonal salads and tarts ideal for lunch, or our fantastic range of indulgent sweet treats (Dark Choc Vegan Brownie, anyone?) there's something for everyone.

What's more, we also serve local beers from Left Handed Giant, local ciders, and Christmas offerings including mulled wine and orange liqueur hot chocolate. Located on the bustling King Street, we're the perfect spot to enjoy a drink with friends over the festive period.
