Remember the days when an evening out was an ‘either, or’ of theatre and restaurant – and if theatre came out as top choice, the best likely sustenance you could expect was a packet of peanuts and a dodgy sandwich? We love the Peyton and Byrne people for making that vision a piece of history. Now you can turn up a little early for the show at the Lyric and be served the likes of Suffolk Wagyu topside with watercress, or blackened fillet of sea bass with chilli pickle. If you’re a bit late and don’t have time for the full works, you can order various classy snacks (from bruschettas to sharing boards) to keep your tummy from rumbling in the quiet moments. Alternatively, you could eschew the theatre altogether and settle in for a full three courses, rounding off with gooey chocolate cake or Bakewell tart and ice cream.
