Chatting Up In The Air
Restaurant manager David Williams talks about the RSC Rooftop Restaurant
by Daniel Douglas
Thank you very much. We've received a lot of feedback from customers, and generally it's been very favourable. There's something for everyone. Tender, succulent slow-roasted meat for the carnivores, unusual cuts such as pork cheek for the adventurous, curious combinations like rosemary syrup and beer sorbet, sticky toffee pudding if you're feeling traditional, chocolate mousse with tangerine compote for the sweet-toothed.
What did you learn from that feedback? Is there anything you think you need to work on?
The restaurant is still developing, and we are working on lots of different things. One is the lack of choice for vegetarians – there is only one option currently – and hopefully that will be rectified with our next menu change. Many people, including me, love the atmosphere and being able to hear some of the sounds of the theatre as they dine: the bustle, the noise, the laughter, and so on.
Anything to say specifically to RSC Key members?
Yes, there is something for every taste, and every budget here. It's possible to spend a lot of money here if you so wish, but the fixed price menu is only £14.95 for two courses, or £17.95 for three courses. And don't forget, RSC Key members get 10% off all food and drink.
