Pre Theatre Dining at Kingston Theatre Hotel & Restaurant

Visit Our Award Winning Restaurant As The Matinee Performance To Your Evening Show

A theatre food menu will often not include the same level associated with a fine dining restaurant - and that’s why so many people choose to dine out in style before their trip to the theatre.

At The Kingston Theatre Hotel, we recognise this, and being so close to Hull New Theatre, we invite you to really treat yourself to a pre-theatre dining experience to set you up perfectly for your evening performance!

Pre-theatre dining should help you relax and get ready for your night - and that’s why our award winning Clapham Restaurant is the ideal location to begin. With a grand ambient feel and luxury decor, you can be sure to feel lavish as you dine.

The matinee performance is brought to you courtesy of our wonderful range of traditional starter dishes. Expertly prepared by our experienced head chef we promise to kick off the evening in the best possible way.

Next up, is the second act - or main course if you will. A selection of dishes that are both traditional and contemporary we cater for all kinds of preferences and our front of house staff will be serving with a smile and refilling drinks accordingly.

Finally, the denouement, which arrives in the sweet form of our desert menu. A selection of sweet treats that will really ensure your pre-theatre dining experience has been a performance to remember. 

Perhaps by now you’re calling for an encore? Well, you can most certainly stay for a coffee or even a drink in our bar before you head off to take your seats across the road at Hull New Theatre.
