The Restaurant at Theatre Severn will offer a two or three course menu option, as well as catering for meetings and conference bookings at the Shropshire Council-owned venue.

The theatre’s new executive chef said:-

“I am so excited to be taking on this new venture at the fantastic Theatre Severn.

“We will be offering a bistro style menu, which will change to accompany the different performances. With the option of two or three 3 courses, we will ensure customers are seated, served, and finished in time for the show, so you never have to worry about missing the main event.”

Robert Macey, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member for culture and digital, said:-

“We are delighted that our audiences at Theatre Severn will be able to enjoy pre-theatre food in our fabulous restaurant overlooking the river. We have taken our time to make sure we find the right partner to run the restaurant, and we are confident Liam will deliver the best menus and service for our theatregoers.”
