“Vibrant stuff!” – the Lovells’ “buzzy” Middle Eastern venue (there’s also a sibling in Clifton) turns out an impeccable array of shakshuka, mezze and hummus and is particularly of note for its “very enjoyable brunch”; a location opposite the Tobacco Factory makes it ideal for pre-theatre dining.

Darren & Ella Lovell have raided the former Ottoman Empire to create a good-value menu of “vibrant, tasty and imaginative Middle Eastern dishes”. It’s opposite the Tobacco Factory, so “great for pre-theatre dining” – the only quibble is that sometimes it’s “too popular for its own good: amiable but cramped”. There’s now a branch in Clifton that also sells hard-to-find ingredients.

A good “cheap ’n’ cheerful” pre- or post-theatre venue for The Tobacco Factory opposite – Darren & Ella Lovell’s acclaimed street food spot offers an adventurous menu cherry-picking from the whole ex-Ottoman Empire (with “very good vegetarian” options in particular). A Clifton sibling, which also sells supplies, opened a few years back.
