  • A warm welcome to Ovation, Mayflower Theatre’s onsite restaurant!

    Just a few moments from your seat

    Situated on the third floor of our beautiful theatre, our restaurant offers you the most relaxing pre-show dining experience possible – with our friendly team aiming to provide you with a delicious dining experience – as well as ensuring that you get to your seats in good time for “curtain up”!

    No need to worry about your food being ordered in time, or rushing to get the bill – what could be better! You can even choose to return to the restaurant in the interval to enjoy your dessert and coffee, or finish your bottle of wine – all will be ready and waiting for you.

    Mayflower Theatre aims to be fully inclusive and accessible to all and Ovation is easily accessible via a lift direct from ground level. We will happily discuss any access requirements in advance of your visit to ensure that you and your party are fully at ease.

    Our menus

    We offer a menu selection, tailored to our audiences, that simply offers the best in seasonal produce, supplied locally wherever possible – and beautifully prepared and served by our team of expert chefs. Our children’s menu includes firm favourites – and we have highchairs and booster seats so the whole family can feel comfortable and “at home”. We also cater for any special dietary requirements and our waiting team will happily display their in depth knowledge of each dish if you have any questions – or any preferences in how you would like it to be served.

    We frequently offer menus that are themed to the production on stage that week – so you can really be absorbed in your theatre experience from the moment you step into the building. 

    On selected Sunday performances, we also honour that great tradition of the Sunday Roast.

    Murder Mystery and Themed Events

    Alongside our theatre dining offering – Ovation also acts as a stage for our themed events. These are extremely popular and a brilliant choice for birthdays, anniversaries and family get togethers with a difference. We are hosting  our ever popular Murder Mystery Evenings in the next few months.

    Part of your Mayflower Theatre experience – the show starts on your plate!

    Whether having lunch with your family, or celebrating a special occasion, we are confident that, after your first visit, Ovation will become an automatic first choice for all your theatre visits.

    Tables in Ovation tend to get booked very quickly – so make sure you make your reservation here or when you book your tickets to avoid disappointment.

    We look forward to welcoming you to Ovation very soon.
