Stumbled across this delightful eatery whist having a day out.We had a light lunch including soup, pate, cake and tea. All tasted very good, good helpings. The display in the fridge and eyeing up the fare of people on the table next to ours suggested that the choice was all good. Recommended.

I highly recommend a visit to The Old Theatre Deli if you are in Southwell. I regularly visit with my family and friends and absolutely love the food and find all the staff very friendly. It is a shame that local competitors post bad reviews on here. I have never had a bad experience in all the times I have... More

The deli is very clean, nice atmosphere & very lovely staff. We only had a sandwich & the pate. Both of which were very nice and pleasant, good value for money. If you enjoy eating out at warm, lovely places, with quality ingredients then it's worth visiting. Will definitely return for coffee, cakes, brunch & lunch in the future. We... More

I had lunch here about a fortnight ago with a friend and we both opted to go with sandwiches. It does say something about the bread, along the lines of doorstop slices or similar but even so, there is just way, way too much of it. I had the crab sandwich which was nice but unfortunately had only white meat... More

We visited twice recently and thoroughly enjoyed the lunch menu sitting out in the lovely sunshine and enjoying the pleasant atmosphere. The food was exquisite and the service was very good and friendly. We will be back!

It's a great location and food looks and sounds good. We only ordered coffee and fruit bread toast, but no fruit in toast, though there were nuts(shouldn't these get a mention on the menu?). My Americano only three quarters full and smaller cup than the cappuccino. No greeting from staff when at the counter and no smile anywhere. Seems a... More

My husband and I visited here for coffee over the weekend. We both found our drinks to be nice and the staff seemed friendly enough. However, finding a seat was challenging. There are plenty of seats outside, but if the weather is looking a bit wet, it can be awkward to find a seat inside due to how busy it... More

There is nothing better than a pot of real tea (with leaves) and a breakfast at the Deli. All superb quality farm food. None of that supermarket rubbish. They will pretty much make what you want and nothing is ever a problem. Great selection of fantastic food. The best daytime food in Southwell.
