A great place to meet friends, colleagues or business clients.



All year round we are pleased to offer:

  • A fresh eat in and take away menu - sandwiches and toasties made to order
  • Open Monday to Friday 9am - 5pm, and Saturdays 9am to 3pm
  • Special meal deal offers
  • Loyalty scheme
  • Live music for your enjoyment
  • Free Wi-Fi facility
  • Complimentary daily newspapers

So, if you're shopping in town, meeting a colleague or business client, or want to catch up with friends why not consider dropping in to sample our artisan coffee from Moonroast and delicious homemade cakes or a light lunch.  Our licenced bar is open too.

Chatter and Natter

Each Thursday from 10am - 12pm a group table is on open reserve for the Chatter and Natter scheme - order your refreshments and then join the open table to chat to new people.  It's not a scheme to make friends, just to encourage some good old-fashioned chat!  For more information visit the national website:

Evening Show Service

The Bar is open an hour before a show on performance evenings and during the interval, and is the place to meet friends and fellow theatre goers.  Please note that the bar will be closed after the interval.

A small range of sandwiches, rolls, toasties and cakes are available prior to evening shows.

On summer evenings the canopied deck is the perfect place to enjoy a glass of chilled wine, a G&T or a long cold beer.   Drinks may be enjoyed before, after, and during most performances at The Lights.  Look out for our regular special promotions including guest beers, cocktails and feature flavour ice creams!

Interval drinks may be ordered at the Bar prior to evening performances.

The Arena Cafe Bar will be closed to the public on a variety of days throughout the year to enable Blood Donation sessions to take place.  Please click here for a list of dates.
