RSC Rooftop Restaurant

The Royal Shakespeare Company’s Rooftop Restaurant and Bar feels rather like a Manhattan loft conversion. Commanding superb views of Stratford-upon-Avon and beyond, it’s a bright, airy and modern space that was part of the £113 million refurbishment that took place at the RSC between 2007 and 2010.

The chefs here are committed to cooking with British seasonal ingredients and sourcing from local suppliers. For example, in winter you can expect dishes that use beetroot, grouse, quince and chestnuts. Suppliers include Paddock Farm Butchers. Expect plenty of light options that won’t induce doziness in comfortable theatre seats.

But food is just part of the Rooftop Restaurant experience. It’s a unique place. Glass, crisp surfaces and exposed brickwork dominate, and there’s an unrestored wall left in place to add character. This is a tasteful, contemporary and sophisticated dining area – the balcony running around the edge of the building provides a spectacular place to eat when weather allows.

Great Food Club’s reviewer wrote of the Rooftop Restaurant: “On our pre-matinee performance lunchtime visit, we chose a flavoursome butternut squash and sweetcorn risotto with Ticklemore cheese, and a superbly light pollock with Blackstick Blue that was very well cooked.

“Gazing out of the tall windows at the swans on the Avon, sipping a glass of Sancerre André Dezat, digesting your meal and looking forward to the performance is a wonderful experience.”

  1. Cakefan says:

    The standard of the cooking is very high, with some nice creative touches, there always seems to be a table available and the views are really special. The waiting staff are really considerate and they know how to ensure you get to the play on time. Good place to come with family or as a couple.
