Here at the Maltings, food is never far from our mind and with the sunnier climate in full force, we are always looking at ways that we can expand our seasonal dining offer. In case you don’t know about our food and drink options or want to find out more about the new things we’ve introduced, take a read below to whet your appetite!

barbecue at grills & guitars

During our free live music season every Friday in July and August, attendees are able to pre-book a barbecue meal cooked by our Riverside Café team. Options include grilled meat such as Sausages and Jerk chicken, and Vegan options including Roast vegetable frittata and BBQ Fennel & black olive dressing. The barbecue is served from 7.30pm, ready to feast before the music starts at 8.30pm. Don’t forget to pre-book your barbecue by midday of the day before! Take a look at the full line-up of Grills & Guitars 2019 on our music page.

sharing boxes at outdoor cinema

As we launch our outdoor cinema this summer in the courtyard, we felt the need to create a bespoke dining offer that would suit the relaxed vibe of the auditorium and would be easy to eat on deckchairs! Visitors to the outdoor cinema will be able to dine on delicious tapas sharing boxes, featuring a meat and vegan option. These will include a selection of olives, bread, peppers and dip alongside meat and cheese for the meat box, and Vegan spring rolls and Vegan cheese for the Vegan box. Yum! Available to book when you purchase your tickets.

daily specials & pre-show dining in the Riverside Café

Our Riverside Café serves daily specials cooked simply with local seasonal produce, prepared to order sandwiches and homemade cakes. Specials you may have seen recently on our board have included Watermelon, feta & mint salad, Hummus & roasted vegetable wraps and Sweet potato & coconut soup. Selected shows in our main programme also feature a pre-show dining option available to book when you purchase your tickets. You’ll see the little eat symbol in our brochure next to those events with pre-show dining as an option. If you’re a regular to the monthly Stand-Up Comedy Club, you’ll have seen that you can pre-order a delicious curry to eat before the show begins in our Cellar Bar. Our film maltings programme on a Wednesday also offers a homemade pizza before the 8pm screening. Enjoy the hassle-free experience by just wandering out of the Café and straight into your chosen show!
