pre-theatre dining

If you’re attending a show why not start the evening by visiting the new Simply Classic Bistro and indulge in some pre-theatre dining?

The Simply Classic Bistro will be open two hours prior to most performances and will take orders until thirty minutes prior to showtime. We highly recommend reserving a table as already most performances have reservations, reserve a table by calling 01282 477114 or emailing burnleymechanics@burnley.gov.uk

Since the launch of the Bistro on the 1st June 2015 we have developed a reputation for offering great food and service in a very different atmosphere not found anywhere else in the town centre. The comfortable and relaxed atmosphere along with fresh food prepared on site allows you to sit back and thoroughly enjoy the evening ahead.
