About 1766 Bar & Kitchen

Set in the stunning front of house redevelopment of the historic Bristol Old Vic Theatre, 1766 Bar & Kitchen is a warm and welcoming all day dining destination in the heart of the city serving everything from morning coffee right through to evening pre-show dining.

Expect delicious breakfast options, served six days a week, including dishes such as waffles fresh of the press with smoked streaky bacon & maple syrup or the tasty vegetarian option of fried halloumi, smashed avocado and roasted vine tomatoes on chargrilled turmeric & chilli bread.

At lunchtime, you can choose from our daily changing salad bar or our Set Menu priced at £9.95 for one course, £13.95 for two courses or £17.95 for three.

In the evening, our Theatre Menu offers a more extensive three-course Prix Fixe, including dishes such as Homewood Cheese ewes curd, pickled beetroot, almond crumble & orange to start and 28-day dry-aged Sirloin of Hereford beef, beurre 1766, fries & baby gem to follow.

We take Sunday Lunch very seriously, with a choice of three roast meats accompanied by duck fat, rosemary & garlic roast potatoes, Yorkshire puddings, seasonal veg and delectable gravy. A gluttonous dessert menu will finish it all off nicely and we will always have a vegan roast available.

Great pre-theatre food. Service was great too and we like the way that interval drinks are served at the table we dine at.

Just perfect. Great that you can book a meal the same time as booking theatre tickets. Delicious food and drink and the waiting staff were more than ready to help. Thank you

Good pre theatre lunch in a pleasant atmosphere. We were really well looked after by Satya, who also kindly organised a table and interval drinks. We would definitely eat here again

Delicious food and great service. We were very late for our table due to traffic but it was not a problem at all. Staff were very attentive and timing was not a problem. We ate slow cooked lamb shoulder with Puy lentils and sirloin with fries followed by sticky toffee pudding and choc mousse - all wonderfully tasty and perfectly cooked. We will definitely be back!

Excellent meal with very amiable and pleasant service. Slghtly more than I would pay normallty for a meal as the extras added almost as much again (small glass wine, tea and pudding). Noisier place than I prefer but that is the way of the world. Imaginative food and good veggie choices. Definitely will be back. Thanks

Great food in an exciting environment. Food beautifully presented. Loved the Cheesy Ewe Balls starter. My main was Duck which was exquisite. Nicely finished with an affogato
