Food and Drink
The Royal Albert Hall has a variety of dining spaces and bars across all levels, open to ticket holders.
Verdi – Italian Kitchen opens two and a half hours before concerts in the main auditorium, and our bars open two hours before events.
From Friday 4 December Café Bar will be opening again, to ticket holders only.
While we are running at a reduced capacity advance table reservations are required for our restaurants and bars. If you book for a restaurant or bar, you will need to order a substantial meal if you plan to consume alcohol, in accordance with government guidelines.
As a concert hall we are also permitted to sell alcohol and snacks to ticket holders 30 minutes before the start of the show, but you must be seated when eating or drinking.
Please note that we will be requesting cashless payment throughout the building. By which we mean contactless or card. If you arrive with three-penny bits (pronounced ‘thripenny’), six-pences, shillings, florins, half-crowns or crowns, your offer will certainly be considered (mostly by our archivists) but will inevitably be declined.
From three course meals to sandwiches, browse our range of pre-show dining options to make your evening extra special.
Bought tickets in the Grand Tier, Second Tier, or Loggia levels? You can order food and drink hassle-free directly to your box.
