A “nice setting” – especially if you can nab “a window seat to enjoy the view” – boosts a visit to the RSC’s large and airy rooftop bar/restaurant, with outside terrace overlooking the swans gliding along the Avon. The food is not really the point, but by most accounts it’s “perfectly decent – especially for an institutional restaurant”.
“Make sure you have a table with a view” (“it’s worth going just for the views of Stratford”) if you stray up to the RSC’s rooftop venue in the gods of the old theatre. It’s not a foodie destination, but it’s consistently well-rated.
Set in “fascinating” and “iconic” surroundings – the gods of the old theatre – the RSC’s rooftop venue is a real “treat” offering “very thoughtful service and well-above-average food” for an arts venue. Try for an outside table in summer to enjoy splendid views across the river.
“Go for an outside table in the summer with the views across the river!” if you visit this rooftop restaurant, sited in what used to be the gods of the old theatre. The “thoughtfully sourced British food” is “ambitious” and while “it doesn’t always quite work”, it’s usually very “decent”. (“We eat here regularly and the RSC should be praised for their efforts – they could have outsourced this operation to one of the corporates but, instead, it is all well run in-house”).
