In The Cafe



What can people expect from your menu when they come in to the café?

Your favourite foods, but better! I am a great believer in the comforting power of food, especially during the colder months – foods like lasagnes, casseroles and curries. In the summer it’s great to have fresh, homemade quiches and salads. I also love to try different things and experiment.

What sort of food will the café be serving?

I’m aiming to have a varied menu using locally sourced ingredients, plus specials that will depend on the season. You’ll be able to get a really good home-cooked meal when you come to BAC.

What are you most looking forward to about running the cafe?

I am looking forward to getting to know what our customers and finding out what they enjoy!

What would you say to people thinking of popping in?

Come in and say hello! The food will be excellent quality, value for money, and delicious. I have very high standards and that’s what people can expect from us. And always service with a smile!

If you could go on any TV cooking show, what would it be?

Anything with James Martin – he’s a great chef except he likes a bit too much butter!

The Bridport Arts Centre Café and Bar is open from 10am-4pm, Tuesday-Saturday, serving a range of home-cooked meals, cakes and drinks.






We now offer suppers before selected events each season. Visitors can choose from a two or three course option and enjoy a delicious meal in the comfort of our Café before the show. The bar will be open, so why not treat yourself to a drink as well?

Be sure to book to avoid disappointment! £14.95/£17.95 per person


Opera and Ballet lovers can enjoy a two-course meal when attending one of our popular Event Cinema screenings. Food is served during the interval – it’s a great chance to discuss the spectacular productions with fellow diners before heading back into the theatre for the next act.

Advance booking is required £14.95 per person
