We are hugely excited to be working with iconic London restaurant St. JOHN to provide our food and drink offering in our beautiful foyer. Our café-bar is central to the daily life of our working theatre, providing sustenance to theatregoers as well as those who work around and pass through Potter’s Field and the vibrant river area.

Coffee and pastries

Throughout the morning join us for the favourite St. JOHN  pastries, freshly baked by St. JOHN Bakery just around the corner in Bermondsey, alongside expertly made coffee and teas, also available to take away. Throughout the day and evening there is also a changing selection of cakes and signature doughnuts.

Lunch and pre-theatre

At lunchtime and throughout the afternoon, for pre-theatre or get-togethers, the kitchen is open for light meals drawn from the much-loved St. JOHN repertoire, as well as sandwiches devised by Fergus Henderson especially for the Theatre. Please click here for the sample menu.

We do not take reservations at The Bridge but would advise to arrive from 5.30pm to ensure you secure a table.  Please note the kitchen is closed on Sundays.

Interval orders

Interval orders can be placed in advance at the theatre bar for drinks and St. JOHN Madeleines, these are freshly baked and also served hot throughout the day.


The bar features a carefully curated list of St. JOHN wines, local beers and a few classic cocktails, served daily from noon.

St. JOHN Label Wines are available to drink in by the glass or the bottle.

St. JOHN have developed their own label wines to be great  expressions of a particular region, working with a number of like-minded producers to create wines which are all about terroir and value. Above all, they are the wines which we like to drink! For our full wine menu click here.

Ice Cream

We are also very pleased to be working with Cambridge-based Jack’s Gelato, who will be delivering freshly made ice cream to us each week with a roster of seasonal flavours.
