About Corn Exchange Kitchen & Bar
Situated in a prestigious Grade II listed building in the historic Market Place, the Corn Exchange Newbury is a flagship arts centre for the South East. All food is freshly prepared and their independent kitchen is a vibrant, informal and friendly eating-place.
American born Head Chef Michelle Charles packs the seasonal menus with fresh, local produce from small suppliers. The Corn Exchange is a creative venue, that loves to support innovative businesses who stray from the norm and strive to make a difference.
Outside of Kitchen hours, the bar is open seven days a week and you can grab a hot coffee or specialty tea. If you’re looking for something stronger, they have a great selection of craft distilled spirits, local ales from West Berkshire Brewery, an ever evolving selection of wines and of course, prosecco for those special occasions.
For larger parties, or to hire the balcony bar please get in touch on 0845 5218 218 (*Calls cost 2p per minute plus your telephone company’s access charge.)
Good attentive and friendly staff, food was good and plentiful.
Friendly flexible service
A very simple meal which suited us fine. Staff were friendly and helpful. Will be doing it again when we return fot the next show.
We waited quite a while for our food to arrive and when it did it was served to another table by mistake. We had to tell the waiter he had got the wrong table. The menu is very uninspiring, pretty much "fast food" and the selection of children's food very unhealthy. It is like the chef opened the freezer and cooked what he took out in the deep fat fryer. Service friendly enough but Pizza Express across the road would have been a better option.
The food we had was very nice but no puddings. The place is very nicely done but we were the only people there.
We had a lovely time at the Corn Exchange. We were tucked away so it felt lovely and intimate, whilst being close to the action, to keep an eye on the start time. The menu was a little limited - it would be good to include some more healthy options, but the children's portions were a good size and the service was excellent. I would definitely recommend it!
My son and I went to see Horrible Histories on Friday, which he has really been looking forward to. The seating area for dining was very cold and the the heating was not on despite it being below 5 degrees outside! My son ordered the pizza and it base was undercooked, he only managed 1 slice. His meal came with a cookie, which transpired to be a gingerbread man, which was so hard that even I struggled to bite into it! When the food came, the staff were confused which table it was for despite there only being 2 tables there. My food was average, the onion rings I ordered was saturated in oil. The evening was a Christmas present which was tarnished due to food and service. We will go to another restaurant when we go to the see something at the Corn Exchange again.
friendly staff. Good for a quick bite before the theatre
We came down from The Midlands to see our son in panto. After a 2 hour journey we were met with friendly staff and a warm , friendly atmosphere. The service was fast,the food was gorgeous and well worth the money. We shall be back and would highly recommend. Thank you everyone.
Service is excellent, very attentive and welcoming
Thank you so much for decorating the table and making a birthday show so much fun
We were a party of 8 on a Friday evening and we all had the comedy burger deal. Service was great and the deal is very good value. My lamb burger was delicious - including the banana ketchup!
Had to go downstairs to get a cup of coffee after our meal. Perhaps if we had preordered, a waitress might have brought it?
Great evening, food and service was really good.
Excellent food, very good value, highly recommend.
Food was excellent! Would highly recommend to anyone attending a show to try some food beforehand!
We were really delighted with the new restaurant on the 1st floor of the Corn Exchange. Burgers were the deal we were given and the meat burger was excellent, although my fish burger lacked a bit of texture, it was rather mushy, so would not have that again. Presentation was good, service very good, menus were exceptionally clean and interesting. My partners sweet was very good. I would certainly recommend it and would go again. Very nice to have something to eat before the show and prefer to eat upstairs rather than in the foyer. Hope you are successful. Best of luck, Maureen
Staff very helpful and friendly. We ate on a Comedy Burger deal - can definitely recommend the lamb burger.
Staff were very welcoming and helpful.
Lovely lunch at the Corn Exchange, the food is always so fresh and the staff are very friendly, we are working our way through the summer menu!
We are so glad you like it! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
The food was very good and good service value for money definitely come again
Thank you for your lovely comments, we look forward to welcoming you again soon!
