Kitchen closure

Regrettably the Maltings kitchen will be closed from Fri 08 October until further notice. Since reopening the building in May 2021 we have delighted in sharing our new menu with you. We’ve all enjoyed delicious open Danish sandwiches, freshly made salads and specials.

You may be aware of the challenges facing the catering sector at the moment in which recruitment of staff is proving very difficult. Despite advertising in every conceivable way and reaching out to our membership, we have been unable to recruit a chef.

During the kitchen closure, you can still enjoy hot and cold drinks, sweet and savoury pastries from our Foyer Bar. Our suppliers – Good Taste, The Bread Factory and SØDT bakery – produce mouth-watering handmade, artisan cakes and pastries. Our regular opening hours are Monday to Saturday. Please note that we are generally not open on Sunday, unless there is a major event or festival taking place in the building.

Please be assured that any pre-show dining that has already been purchased will go ahead. The bar service for programmed events remains unaffected.

Our café is central to the maltings open space and we hope that we bring news of a reopening soon. Thank you as ever for your support and patience as we work through these tricky times.
