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.

We have eaten there before and will again. staff very helpful
We had a really good pre show meal. Interesting menu with, the usual (fish and chips) and something a bit different ( teriyaki chicken salad with crispy noodles) the food was fresh and ‘clean’ . We go to the Watermill quite a lot and we preferred your food. Downside, we were the only ones eating, so poor ambience. Maybe you should consider ticket/ meal deals.
Good burgers. Limited choice but fine for pre theatre meal when time short.
Very pleased with the whole booking, all staff were brilliant. Me and my partner were very impressed with the organisation of the whole evening from the food and drink to the comedy show. On entering the theatre we felt very welcomed, staff member was very helpful and really showed he wanted to help us with showing us to are seats.
The food and drink options were good. The coleslaw was really good, however the buns were really cold. It would be really good if the bun could be warmed before serving, or at least at room temperature.
Excellent service all round. Staff very helpful
We had a very nice burger meal deal before a show. Great VFM, good food and excellent service. Highly recommended.
Good service, very helpful server. Jovial and had a conversation with us.
I've used the bar during the day and like it so a friend and I decided to try a kitchen meal prior to an evening performance. Booking a table online was easy. Staff efficient and friendly. Food simple but very tasty, nicely served and portions generous (we had a burger meal). Great to find a veggie burger on menu and good to know fresh local produce is used.
Our second pre-show meal at the Corn Exchange. Nice food, good service, but this time perhaps lacking a bit of atmosphere - we were seated downstairs.
My friend and I had dinner before the Claire Teal concert on 26 May. Food was delicious, service was quick and efficient and everyone was friendly and helpful. Prices very good as well. Couldn't fault a thing. Definitely planning another visit
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?
