Food & Drink

Fancy a little something while you’re here?  Whether it’s lunch, dinner or a snack, stunning views are also on the menu!

We’re sure you’ll agree that a trip to the Theatre isn’t complete without a pre-show tipple, an interval treat or a post-matinee show meal to round off a fantastic day.  Here’s some more info about the tasty options we’ve got for your visit to the Theatre.


Our Café/Bar space sells hot and cold drinks, pastries, chocolate, crisps and the all important tubs of ice-cream supplied by local ice-cream maestros Stewart Tower Dairy!

We have some fantastic gin pours, a curated wine list and cocktails, as well as soft drinks to inspire.  Grab a drink before curtains up, or just grab a seat and enjoy the view, either in the foyer or laze outside on our deckchairs.

Our café/bar is open 10am – 5pm Monday to Saturday on non show days.

On show days we are open 10am – 10pm Monday to Saturday.

On Sundays we are open 12 – 4pm for matinee performances and 6pm – 10pm for evening performances.


The Riverbank Hut

We also open the Riverbank Hut in the summer, where you can grab snacks and drinks as you watch the world go by.  Open 12 noon – 8pm Wednesday to Saturday.

Vegetarian Menus:

Our food and drink offer is full of locally sourced fresh bakes made in Pitlochry, Brodies bean to cup ground coffee and fresh produce from around Scotland wherever possible.  Food and drink is available whether you are visiting our Auditorium, Studio, Bandstand or the Amphitheatre, and there will always be a snack and drinks offer when the Theatre is open.  For those of you who are regulars to our Theatre, you may notice that we no longer have a full restaurant offering, this is to reflect our new spaces, and is influenced by the need to begin Phase 2 of our Capital project.  We will however always endeavour to have a high quality and varied offer for your visit.  We are also delighted to recommend a number of local restaurants around the area, which you can read bout HERE

At Pitlochry Festival Theatre we feel passionately about contributing positively to our environment wherever possible.  With that at the forefront of our minds, we have made some bold decisions around packaging, presentation and our offer going forward.  From now on we will be asking our suppliers to share their environmental credentials around packaging and delivery.  All of our cups, plates, and containers will be 100% biodegradable.  We also won’t sell bottled water, but we will have a cold, fresh water fountain, so please bring along your reusable bottles too.
