Food & Drink

Theatre Royal’s Greene Room Bar offers a tempting selection of snacks and refreshments.

As we all become more aware of our impact on the environment at Theatre Royal we are reducing our carbon footprint by switching to locally sourced alternatives wherever possible. By decreasing our food miles, we are not only helping the environment, but also promoting the high-quality products of local businesses and partners in the East of England.

You may have noticed a change in our beers and spirits lately as we move to locally sourced products.

We are proud to stock Aspall’s Cyder from Aspall in Debenham, Niche Cocktails from Framlingham, Melford’s Gin and Venture Point Five from Long Melford, The English Single Malt Whiskey from Thetford and WhatAHoot Signature Vodka, Norfolk Dark Spiced Rum and Home Farm 0% Gin (all sourced from Norfolk).

Not to mention Greene King Beers – no other theatre in the land can say that their beer travels just 50 metres from source to serve!

Local Ice Creams

We now also stock ice-cream from local supplier is Ronaldo’s Ices.

Ronaldo’s are proud producers of Norfolk ice cream, with all of the ingredients for their products grown and sourced from just a few miles away from their factory. Even the oats in their vegan oat milk ice cream are grown locally. They have been making ice cream for over 35 years, and it is still as delicious as ever.


Plastic – But Feels Like Glass

No more glass, no more single-use plastic, just a great, environmentally friendly alternative.

As part of our mission to improve our green credentials, and make improvements based on feedback from our wonderful audiences, we now only serve drinks in polycarbonate glasses. Polycarbonate is as close to glass as you can get, without the risk! This means that you can take your drinks into the auditorium to enjoy during the show and the glasses can be cleaned and reused – preventing lots of plastic going into the bin!

So, when you come to the theatre for your visit, enjoy one of our locally-sourced beverages in a reusable, polycarbonate glass.
