Open throughout the day and evening, the foyer of The Bridge Theatre will be central to the daily life of our working theatre, and serve as a local hub for those who work around and pass through Potters Fields and the London Bridge and Tower Bridge areas.

We are hugely excited to be working with iconic London restaurant St. JOHN on our foyer bar and café.

All our baked goods will be created locally at the St JOHN bakery, just around the corner from The Bridge Theatre in Bermondsey.

From the morning, we will be serving freshly made pastries and granola alongside expertly made coffee and teas, also available to take away. Throughout the day and evening, there will be a changing selection of cakes and their signature doughnuts.

At lunch and before or after theatre, there will be sandwiches such as Cold Roast Lamb and Aioli or Egg Mayonnaise and Cress. There will be small plates such as Terrine, Smoked Mackerel with Horseradish, Globe Artichokes, or Potted Beef. Nibble at Anchovy Twists, Crispy Pig Skin or Radishes and Butter to sustain you during the interval or over daytime meetings. A full menu is available here.

We also have a post show menu which can be downloaded here.

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

Interval and post show orders can be placed in advance for drinks and St. JOHN Madeleines, freshly baked and served hot throughout the day.

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.
