Food and drink at Bristol Old Vic...
You may have noticed that we've recently changed the name of our tapas restaurant. After working closely with Bristol's Cotham restaurant Flinty Red for the past three years, we will be continuing to deliver our successful tapas offering under the banner of Bristol Old Vic Restaurant. Flinty Red trained Chef Josh Albiston who trained under Matt Williamson leads our kitchen and he has a wealth of knowledge and a passion for serving exciting tapas dishes of quality and only using the finest quality ingredients. We hope you can join us soon for our popular pre-show daily Tapas menu.
Our Restaurant & Bar serves lunch and supper to both theatregoers and the general public on selected show days.
Please note that unless specified otherwise, the restaurant is not open in advance of Studio or Basement shows and events unless the show coincides with a Theatre performance.
