The Common Room at Omnibus Theatre is the perfect place to chill out before or after a show. Our seats are comfy, our WiFi is free and our sockets are plentiful.

Before an event make sure to take advantage of our fully stocked bar with craft beers, soft drinks and a great wine selection. Coffee and a range of teas are available too, if that’s more your style. And why not treat yourself to some posh crisps while you’re at it.

Opening Hours: 10am-6pm
The bar opens 1 hour before events
Food and Drink

Our Common Room serves seasonal dishes inspired by our theatre season, made with fresh, organic and delicious ingredients – perfect for a divine pre or post theatre bite. This October our menu is inspired by our season of Irish Theatre, which is running in our main house until 28 October.

Perfect for sharing, our mouth-watering Rustic board includes ham, full-flavoured cheese, hearty soda bread, picked onion and tangy red cabbage.

Rustic board for 2: £12
Rustic board for 1: £7

Vegetarian alternatives available.

Depending on availability, a choice of the items pictured will be on offer.

A Plateful of Jazz

Suggested £5 donation at the door

Come for music and our friendly bar, don’t leave till you’re re-charged for the week. This is where you meet friends, begin your novel, have a coffee, pen your symphony or just chill out.

Visual arts

The Common Room is an exhibition space for our exciting and diverse visual arts programme. Whether it be photography, paintings or installations accompanying our theatre programme, there is always something new and interesting to check out.

Theatre Cats

Arguably the biggest highlight of The Common Room are our two theatre cats, Molly and Tybalt. You’ll find them asleep on one of our comfy sofas, or asleep on the piano, or asleep under a table, or asleep in the middle of the room, just asleep basically.

Oh hi,

Molly and Tybalt here. Welcome to our theatre! If you see us in The Common Room, you can totally pet us if you like. We’re super chill. Please don’t feed us, we’re on a special diet, and sorry if we forget to retract our claws when we play with you. Our bad! Of course if you’re allergic to us, tell the front desk and we can be put in our special room. That’s cool, don’t worry about it.

Look forward to meeting you!

Molly and Tybbs
