Eat & Drink

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 a wide range of spirits. Located on the bustling King Street, we're the perfect spot to enjoy a drink with friends. 


Mon-Fri 8.30am-late | Sat 9am-late

(food is served from 8.30am-4pm, with lunchtime options from midday). 


As a treat for younger visitors at our upcoming Family Day, we've prepared some delicious lunch packs to keep hunger at bay during your visit to Bristol Old Vic!

For just £4.50, you can pick up a bag including: a sandwich, a clementine, gingerbread, juice, and a box of crayons - as well as a bag of veg crisps to share. Just purchase from the bar when you arrive!
