Relax pre-show and indulge in a delicious two- or three-course set menu.
Coming to Bristol Old Vic for a show? Dine with us in the stunning 1766 Bar & Kitchen with the original theatre façade as the backdrop to your eating experience, safe in the knowledge that we’ll get you to your seat in good time for the performance. We can even serve your pudding in the interval.
Enjoy locally sourced, seasonal ingredients prepared with passion by our talented Head Chef Coco Barone and her team like our Festive Dinner Menu which is now available daily from 5pm. Start with the glazed confit pork belly, five-spice & honey, sesame pickled vegetables & hoi sin sauce (pictured), followed by our twist on a classic turkey dinner of crispy turkey breast in panko breadcrumbs, roasted new potatoes, cranberry & orange relish, spiced red cabbage & sultana, topped off with a decadent dessert, such as the Christmas pudding trifle, Bristol cream sherry, jelly custard and toasted almonds.
Whether it’s a family feast, pre-theatre bite or evening with friends and work colleagues, our doors are open, and the bar is buzzing!
