Description: He Foundry Restaurant is a cafe by day offering a great selection of teas, coffee and cakes complete with a seasonal menu to suit all tastes. As the day evolves to evening The Foundry transforms into a relaxed restaurant atmosphere where we offer a great pre-theater experience with stunning views of the river Severn. We have daily specials championing local and seasonal produce, and serve deserts and drinks for the interval. The perfect way to enjoy a night out at the Theater.

Modern medium sized and although we were seated at the end of row j we still had a very good view of the stage. Interval drinks from the bar were served very quickly and although we didn't eat there the menu looks very good. It is a very clean theatre with good signage and very helpful staff. Will definately visit again for another production

The staff were very rude! Everything was a big effort, we felt like we had put them out by going in for lunch. Lunch was very poor, very simple order but only half of what was order came . When we asked for condiments it was a big struggle. Wouldn't go back to the café.

Ate here with some friends before a show and while we didnt book our table the staff very kindly managed to squeeze us in.

Firstly, the service here is second to none. All the staff (even the staff who dont work in the restaurant) are really polite and sooo friendly and welcoming. Next, the food is sublime! Maybe a bit too fine dining for a preshow meal, we were expecting something a little less formal but it was incredibly well presented and packed full of flavour none the less. As we hadnt booked a table and were a bit late sitting down the guy serving us offered us the option of having our desserts in the interval instead of rushing, which we thought was a great idea!

I cant reommend this place enough for the service and the food alike! I will most certainly be back and will be bringing friends!! Keep it up!

Rude,very rude.
Ordered just a coffee and was told we couldn't sit down as the tables were booked for 8,it was only 5:15 !! Ok so took it to the foyer.
Some snooty women who clearly emailed me on here begging to take down the review just stared at is whilst drinking !
If eating/drinking in the area or before your evening show try other places first !!!

Regrettably, this users original review was removed due to inappropriate/abusive language.

We are concerned to read the reviewers comments and will seek to maintain our welcoming and high standard of customer service.

The café restaurant at Theatre Severn is open for lunch and hot/cold drinks between 11am-4pm Monday-Saturday. Evening service for pre-show meals commences at 5pm and ends at 7.30-8pm when performances begin. Diners for pre-show meals tend to arrive between 5-6.30pm to ensure service can be completed before the show commences at either 7.30pm or 8pm.

Hot/cold drinks are available from the restaurant post-5pm, although tables will be prioritised for diners booked in for pre-shows meals. Pre-show, the restaurant is often fully booked, so customers wishing to purchase hot/cold drinks only may be offered alternative seating on Circle level, which is both ample and comfortable.

We apologise if this was not clarified for the reviewer upon submitting their drinks order.
