Pre and Post-theatre dining at Shakespeare’s Globe

Located at the Shakespeare’s Globe, Swan Bar and Restaurant offers a wide range of pre and post-theatre dining options for all performances in both the main theatre and the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse.

Our pre-theatre dinner menu is available in our main Restaurant from 5-7.30pm (last orders 6.30pm) Monday to Saturday. This three course seasonal set menu includes three options for each course and changes with each production. Alternatively, you can join us for full a la carte dining after any performance.

Should you prefer pre-theatre afternoon tea, you can book to join us in the Balcony Room overlooking St Pauls for a traditional spread of classic sandwiches, warm scones and delicate patisseries with a wide choice of loose teas and perhaps a glass of fizz.

Downstairs in our bar, we offer our regular bar menu of modern British dishes, including salads, sharing boards, fishcakes and steaks.

Alternatively, the Café Foyer Bar next to the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse offers a range of sandwiches, cakes, beers, wines and hot drinks.

Finally, gourmet hot sandwiches from our barbeques and a full bar are available on the outdoor Piazza during the Globe’s season form April-October.

Pre-theatre dining and afternoon tea is extremely popular, so we strongly recommend booking on 020 7928 9444. Please note that we do not take bookings in the bar for groups under 10 or the piazza, so please just show up.
