Our café is open from 8:30am – 6pm Monday – Friday and 10am – 4pm on Saturdays.  With our relaxed dog-friendly atmosphere, daily newspapers, a lovely view across Barnes Green and free wifi, it’s the perfect spot to have a coffee, an informal meeting, a catch-up on your emails or to grab a delicious healthy lunch. The café serves breakfast, homemade lunches (until 2:30pm), salads, quiches, cakes and coffee. If you would like to reserve a table for a large group or meet-up, please call ahead.

Our bar is open from 7pm on theatre show nights. We have one of the best wine lists in South London, courtesy of Berry Bros & Rudd.

Cheeseboards, with a wide choice of cheeses and fruit, are available to pre-order.

The OSO Jazz Band performs in the bar before certain theatre performances, so come along early to soak up the atmosphere before the evening’s entertainment.
