Open all day
This bar is attached to the theatre and is a long thin shape. At the far end of the picture is the restaurant with plenty of seats and tables for 4.
The food (served lunch and evenings till 8pm Mon-Sat & 2.30 Sun) is imaginative, especially for vegetarians (Mediterranean/Mexican style food) and is reasonably priced, though costs more than a Wetherspoon would.
The bar is two rooms, though act as one with the second slightly offset. Entrance to the Playhouse Cafe Bar is on the left of the picture, though you can usually enter from the Playhouse theatre itself. The opening room has a light wooden floor and a step up, so not too good for the disabled, though there is another entrance and disabled toilets attached to the theatre. The bar is in this section slightly to the right and has at least four guest ales on plus a few regulars. All well kept and topped up without sparkler.
On Sunday's there are free papers to read with your pint.
For the summer there are tables and chairs outside on the plaza away from the traffic.
Car parking can be difficult and we recommend finding a car park and walking here. Too far to walk from the station unless you are crawling Nottingham as the Playhouse Cafe Bar is at the top of town.
Children are allowed in the restaurant.
