Do you do food?

We have a café during the day that serves a wide selection of hot and cold drinks along with light lunchtime options and snacks.

On performance nights only, our café becomes a bar and we serve a full range of alcoholic drinks and light snacks for before a show and during the interval.

What is Hertford like?

Hertford is the county town of Hertfordshire, but is a relatively small town. It is a friendly place with lots going on, especially for families. There are other arts and heritage organisations that we work closely with, including Hertford Museum, Hertford Library and Courtyard Arts

There are very few high street chains and lots of small, friendly local businesses. There are 3 secondary schools in Hertford and 7 primary schools. There are lots of cafes in Hertford and a few boutique hotels including The Salisbury, Hertford House Hotel and Number 1 Port Hill. Hertford has 2 stations, both with regular trains into London Kings Cross, Finsbury Park, Moorgate and Liverpool Street. The journeys take roughly 1 hour. There is a taxi rank outside the theatre with local firms operating late into the night.

For eating before an evening performance, there is a wide choice of wonderful independent restaurants, along with some well-known chains. They are all in a short walking distance of Hertford Theatre.
