Nice Lunch

A friendly waitress cleared and wiped the table as we sat down. The noise from the espresso coffee machine made it difficult for me to make myself heard to the person taking orders at the counter, or to hear her (see the comment made by another reviewer about repositioning the till). We shared... read more

We were having an quick stop in Southwell and decided on here to have some late lunch instead of the usual pub choice. What a delight it was! Sat outside as it was a lovely afternoon. I chose the buffalo mozzarella and an apple crush. The mozzarella was unbelievable, possibly the biggest tomato I have ever seen and my partner... More

My financee and I have visited the deli a few times now and everytime we have been more than impressed with the food both visually and taste, what we found more impressive is how busy they are and how large the menu is. I have seen a few reviews about the staff and their behaviour but they have always been... More

The food and service here are brilliant. I have been many times and will return time and time again. My only fault - it is not big enough!! I wish you had bigger premises and we could always get inside on cooler days. Everything- totally delicious though so worth wrapping up in a blanket for!

Decided to pop into The Old Theatre Deli whilst in Southwell... What a delight! Beautifully set out very shabby chic/cottage feel. Tea cosys lined the top shelves with a selection of jams, wine etc to purchase on lower shelves. Seating snide and out and Waitress service with a smile. Steak pie and chips with a salad was delicious, a small... More

It look appealing from the outside, with a pavement cafe atmosphere and a variety of food being made available from sandwiches to hot main meals. I opted for the Stilton & Stout rarebit, and my wife fancied the roast beef with creamy horseradish sandwich on granary. We sat inside as outside still had a little nip in the wind and... More

Poor service which is a shame because the food is rather nice! Very pricey but great place and concept. We would stop by again but the staff need to learn to smile and exercise manners!

We wanted some food after our visit to the nearby Workhouse and this place looked inviting. The menu wasn't appealing to either of us though, so we opted for tea & cake instead. We had a good pot each in real tea pots, not those leaky metal ones, plus real China tea cups & saucers. The cakes were yummy, but... More
