Description: 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.

booked in to an evening event for a 3 course meal, prosecco and view of the 'flower show' fireworks from the balcony. wonderful food and excellent service from all the staff.
really accessible for wheel chair users etc as part of the Theatre - including lifts and easy access to toilet facilities.
will definitely book again for this event next year and keep an eye out for other events they are holding.

Went here on Saturday evening before going to the theatre.

We were shown to our reserved table which as requested was wheelchair accessible.

There were about 5 main courses on the menu. Wife chose the steak while I ordered the pork belly. The pate starters were very good. Unfortunately the steak was not good, not sure how it was cooked, think it was fried in a frying pan using fat from the chip fryer, it tasted of chips and was soaked in oil. Wife sent it back. They offered to cook a replacement which we accepted, but the chef declined to cook another as he said it would be the same as we had returned.

We were given a complimentary desert and not charged for the steak.

Don’t think we will be returning.

This was my first visit to the restaurant and the Theatre. Reservation in order and shown very promptly to table over looking the river. Very pleasant. Small and compact, but big on service and quality. Friendly staff who were very organised and efficient. Here for lunch but varied menu. Courses arrived in quick order. Great food. However, there was no Pinkster Gin!!!!

We have been coming here for the past two years and the food is consistently excellent. Friendly staff and lovely atmosphere. A real treat before a night at the theatre.

We first ate here in June 2016 and felt that our meal was as good as we had experienced anywhere. We visited again for a pre-performance meal and I'm happy to report that The Foundry is still a great place to eat. Choice from about five main courses, plus daily specials. I had sausages on an excellent mash with greens; my partner had sea bass on an excellent creamy risotto. As before, excellent, attentive service from the young staff. A real treat before watching an opera from the ROH. We shall return.
