Food Options

In addition to the restaurants you see here, the Globe’s own Lady Carolyn’s Pub features a full bar and selection of soup, sandwiches, and other tasty treats.  The pub opens 90 minutes prior to curtain in the evening, and one hour prior to showtime at matinee performances.  Drinks may be pre-ordered before the show so they are ready for pick-up at intermission.  Covered seating is available at the tables in the adjacent Stephen and Mary Birch Pavilion.

Food is not permitted in any of the theatres. Beverages with lids are allowed in the Old Globe Theatre and Lowell Davies Festival Theatre only. No beverages are permitted in the Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre.
