After months of planning for the opening, I can’t wait to welcome guests to Boulevard. Every effort has been made to ensure our menu has something for everyone to enjoy at any time of day.

The Boulevard restaurant serves a broad range of dishes, with a conscious leaning towards plant-based cookery throughout. Choose from the traditional smashed chilli avocado on sourdough, to sumac oregano chicken, burnt aubergine and Iranian green pistachio, or roasted curried baby caulifower, black dhal, fresh coconut, crispy onions and lime.

For those guests enjoying a night at the theatre, they will be able to enhance their evening with a pre-show fixed price menu that will draw inspiration from the production they are about to see, whilst enjoying a carefully curated range of drinks promoting top-quality local suppliers and artisan producers. The Boulevard also offers a range of memberships, which give members exclusive perks and offers across the theatre, restaurant and bar. Find out more at boulevardtheatre.co.uk/memberships.

The innovative cocktail menu has been curated by renowned barman, Fin Spiteri, and ranges from classic cocktails finished with an unexpected twist through, to inventive and exciting new flavours and combinations including alcohol-free options. The carefully-selected wine list promotes top-quality local suppliers and artisanal producers, whilst the beer lists add some unusual, unconventional offerings to the mix.
