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.
