The Dining Rooms & Bar are situated within the beautiful 17th-century Suckling House, featuring vaulted ceilings, stone arches and antique paneled rooms. They also encompass the John Hurt Centre function rooms, which are full of reminders of the city’s rich cinema history.


Our passionate and creative kitchen team serve a stunning seasonal à la carte menu, as well as hearty lunches, brunches, afternoon teas, Sunday roasts and a variety of bar snacks. We also cater for meetings, party buffets, large sit-down meals and wedding breakfasts.


The bar and courtyard regularly host live music and our long-running film quiz takes place every other Sunday. We serve a wide variety of wines, beers and spirits from our bespoke bar menu and make excellent barista coffee, with a long list of teas also on offer. There’s covered outdoor seating in the courtyard, hidden away from the hustle and bustle of the city, while our front terrace is a great place to catch the last few rays of sun before heading inside for a film. And if you’re just looking for a quiet space to get a bit of work done, stop by for a coffee and use our free Wi-Fi.
