Bar & Kitchen


The Royal Court’s Bar & Kitchen aims to create a welcoming and inspiring environment with a style and ethos that reflects the work we put on stage.

Offering expertly crafted cocktails alongside an extensive selection of craft gins and beers, wine and soft drinks, the Royal Court Bar & Kitchen provides a sanctuary in the middle of Sloane Square. To book a table please use the widget on this page.

Keep up to date with our social media on instagram at @courtinthesquare to stay in the loop.

All profits from the Royal Court Bar & Kitchen go directly to supporting the work of the Royal Court Theatre, cultivating and supporting writers – undiscovered, emerging and established. We look forward to welcoming you back to celebrate summer in the square with us again soon.

The Bar & Kitchen is taking reservations via our online booking system on this page. Our table reservations are for a 2 hour time slot. If you wish to stay longer, please let us know via email so we can check availability for you. We currently only accept bookings up to 6 guests via our online booking. For group bookings (2 households maximum indoors), contact us via

If you’re visiting our theatre to see a show we advise booking a table for pre-show drinks. All visitors will be seated and our waiters will take your drinks order, deliver drinks to your table and take payment. They will also be able to arrange drinks in reusable plastic glasses to take into our auditorium and can arrange bookings and pre-orders for post-show drinks. We allocate tables on a first come, first served basis and therefore booking ahead or arriving early is advised.

We currently don’t offer a regular bar service in our Bar & Kitchen or Balcony Bar in line with government regulations. Court in the Square, our outdoor bar, does offer a takeaway drinks service. Drinks purchased there can be taken into the theatre to enjoy during the performance. Our indoor bars in the basement and the balcony will open for bar service 30 minutes before the show starts and close at the start of the performance. Under current government legislation we’re not able to allow patrons to stand in our venue whilst drinking and after purchasing a drink we kindly ask you to take your seat in the auditorium.

The Bar & Kitchen is fully accessible from street level via our level access side entrance & lifts. If you would like to discuss your visit to the Bar & Kitchen in advance, contact us via email or call 020 7565 5000.
