Eat & Drink

The B-Bar

Our lively, yet intimate bar is well stocked and has the best Thai food in Plymouth (and it's great value too) We also serve a delicious selection of tea, coffee and cakes! With regular live music, comedy and spoken word this hidden gem is also perfect to enjoy a pre-show drink or meal. They'll also supply the interval ice creams during certain performances!
