After more than three years since its closure, the restaurant at Theatre Severn, Shrewsbury is set to reopen, offering theatre goers a pre-show dining experience including 2 and 3 course menus and more. 


Theatre Severn, which is owned and managed by Shropshire Council, put a tender out for a new operator last year, and the former head chef of the town's Beefy Boys, Liam Tinsley, won the lease. Now executive chef at The Restaurant at Theatre Severn, with plans to revive the restaurant back to its former glory, Liam has worked in some of the finest restaurants in Shropshire including the Peach Tree, Lion & Pheasant, River Town and the Mytton & Mermaid.


Liam Tinsley said: “I am so excited to be taking on this new venture at the fantastic Theatre Severn. With the restaurant just steps away from your seats, and a balcony offering some of the best river views in Shrewsbury, I am thrilled to be able to offer theatregoers a chance to dine at the venue again. We will be offering a bistro style menu, which will change to accompany the different performances. With the option of 2 or 3 courses we will ensure customers are seated, served, and finished just in time for the show, so you never have to worry about missing the main event”. 


Venue and Programming Manager David Jack said: "Following a long absence we are delighted to be able to offer pre-show dining experiences again. We know how much our customers have missed the convenience of being able to enjoy a meal at the venue just steps from their theatre seats and we’re very excited to see what Liam has lined up on the menu”.


The Restaurant at Theatre Severn reopens on Thursday 9 November and is now available for online reservations at
