Redrooms at Perth Theatre
It might be easy to miss Perth Theatre altogether, so modest is its High Street doorway. But venture up a few red-carpeted stairs to discover Redrooms cafe-bar and restaurant. With its chandeliers and red velvet seating, the multi-level space reflects the charm of the Edwardian auditorium but with a contemporary feel. A large dining area is open for breakfast and lunch (and pre-theatre suppers on show evenings), serving interesting sandwiches, home-made soups and hot meals such as a chicken noodle bowl or hand-made steak burger using meat supplied by DG Lindsay, the butcher round the corner. Coffee is fair-trade, and served throughout the day in the anterooms and mezzanine areas, while the daily home baking is more than enough reason to pop in, whether you're going to a show or not.
