Eat and Drink
The Visitors Book Café
The Visitors Book Café will be open when Woolwich Works is open. So you can swing by for a coffee and cake during the day, but also pop in for a drink and a nibble in the evening.
We’re looking forward to working with some of our local friends to bring the menu together. Our main courses are made up of signature dishes from some of Woolwich’s best chefs: up first will be a Nepalese recipe by Tenzin Dakpa from Kailash Momo and classic Eritrean cooking by Shewa Hagos from Blue Nile – with dishes and more guests to be announced soon.
Alongside those are a selection of small plates: handmade dips, patés, cheese and charcuterie, perfect to enjoy with a drink after work or before a show, or as a selection to share. At the weekend, we’ll serve a small but banging brunch menu. Children are very welcome until 8pm. We have a kids’ menu, and microwaves and bottle warmers if you need to bring your own for the smaller ones – along with high chairs and some lovely things to colour in.
On Saturday afternoons, you’re welcome to drop in to listen to some of the best emerging talent from the National Youth Jazz Orchestra - just part of our free performance and visual art programme, which you’ll be able to enjoy in the Visitors Book Café every week. You don’t even have to buy a beer (but if you want to, we’ll have some good ones – and some cracking wines and cocktails too).
The Workers Bar is a vast, glass space looking out onto our courtyard which serves lovely drinks and snacks when you come to one of our Main Space shows. For most performances you can visit the bar or order directly to your table during the show; if there’s an interval you can also pre-order drinks to collect. The opening times will vary based on show times and activity in the buildings.
