Welcome to the beautiful Swan Cafe.

Royal Shakespeare Theatre from the Bancroft Gardens

Restaurant, Cafes and Bars closure

Following government advice, all RSC theatres are currently closed. This includes our bars and the Rooftop Restaurant. Our Riverside Cafe is open from Tuesday to Sunday for a takeaway service.


The perfect place to start or finish our exhibition, The Play's The Thing, to enjoy your Swan Theatre interval drinks, or to drop in during the day for coffee and cake. 

Set inside the wood panelled walls are 20 cabinets featuring stories and objects from the RSC Collection.
