Old Theatre Deli

This is a slick, modern-feeling deli/cafe in the centre of town, a stone’s throw from the magnificent Minster, making it a great place to refuel after a visit to Southwell’s stunning 12th century religious building.

Old Theatre Deli – so called because it is housed in an old Georgian theatre – clearly sources its food and drink carefully, finding top-notch, often local ingredients and showcasing them in the deli and on its menus. Amid the ladies who lunch here you’ll find shelves stacked with the finest biscuits for cheese, preserves, chocolates, oils and other delicacies. There are also artisan loaves from Hambleton Bakery and nearby Welbeck Bakehouse, while behind the polished glass of the deli counter are the likes of Hockerton Ham and other cooked and cured meats, plus fine cheeses and pastries. If you’re dieting, the homemade cakes will shatter your resolve in seconds.

The cafe menu – covering breakfast and lunch – changes regularly.

The coffee is good, it’s fully licenced, and the atmosphere is pleasant. There are also a number of outdoor tables if the weather’s good.

    This is one of my favourites. There is very limited seating inside, so I would advise advance booking if you are going for lunch. There is also outdoor seating, but that’s not so great in less favourable weather.
    I have been here for cake and morning coffee, brunch and celebratory lunches. Loved every single one!

    Great veggie options and lovely atmosphere. I would give it 5 stars if they opened upstairs for lunchtime seating, instead of just for functions.
