StageSide Bar and Restaurant

Just over the road from our stage door on Thorp Street, StageSide is a casual, brasserie-style experience with a lively bar and quick service. 

Ideal as a place to meet friends before or after your Hippodrome visit, you might even bump into cast members and musicians as it’s a popular post-show haunt.  Pop in for a coffee or a drink, or a tasty dish or two from our simple modern British menu, all at attractive prices.  You can also book Upstairs at StageSide for a private reception for up to 60 guests.

"StageSide needs no help from Gordon Ramsay" Metro

"The food was absolutely superb and the service was the best I have had in all my years of going to restaurants. Can I assure you that we will be returning many times in the future." Mr K. Jones
