Towngate Café bar

A great place to meet, eat and drink…


Following the latest Government advice regarding Coronavirus and the potential impact on theatre audiences, the Towngate Theatre Cafe Bar will be closed to the public until further notice. We are sorry for any inconvenience and disappointment this may cause, and we look forward to welcoming you back to our Cafe Bar as soon as it is safe to reopen.

Located in the centre of Basildon, the Towngate Theatre Cafe bar is the perfect place to enjoy a spot of lunch, grab a coffee with friends or enjoy a pre-show meal.

A vibrant and modern bar, we offer an extensive food and drink menu throughout the day, with some main courses available for a little over £6.
