Sample Tapas Menu

 

Flinty Red have taken up residence in our upstairs café-bar/restaurant, providing the Bristol Old Vic with delicious seasonal tapas and an exciting array of drinks.

Flinty Red is a collaboration between chefs Matthew Williamson and Claire Thomson and wine merchants Dominic Harman and Rachel Higgens of Corks of Cotham.

The restaurant on Cotham Hill opened in October 2009 and has since won numerous awards.  Notably, a Bib Gourmand and a Red Grapes symbol from the 2011 and 2013 Michelin guides. Its first year of opening also saw immediate inclusion into the Good Food Guide 2010. Flinty Red was recognised as the best Bristol restaurant by Bristol and Bath's Venue magazine in 2010.

The Flinty Red restaurant & bar is open serving 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 events unless the show coincides with a Theatre performance). 

RESERVATIONS RECOMMENDED: Call 0117 987 7877 or email flintyred@bristololdvic.org.uk to book your table. You can be seated at your table from two hours prior to each show. (Please only email up to 24 hours before the performance).
