Dining at Hever

Dining at Hever


We delight in seeing your elegant array of picnics on theatre evenings. The castle site provides a selection of idyllic settings and you are welcome to picnic before evening (from 6.30pm), and after matinée performances (until the castle closes at 6pm).


PRE-THEATRE SUPPERS are available before our evening performances in the Guthrie Pavilion Restaurant. If you choose to book pre-theatre supper then you can arrive from 6pm onwards (except for the play matinee days when you can arrive from 6.30pm). There are no specific time slots for suppers, we do recommend you arrive no later than one hour before the performance start time to ensure you do not have to rush.

We offer just the table booking with your ticket purchase, the restaurant will take payment for your supper on the night, but we will be confirming your reservation in the weeks leading up to your event and asking that you pre-order by email at this time. If for any reason you are not going to be able to attend pre-booked supper, please do not contact catering direct, email us so we can inform the kitchen and manage the waiting list; boxoffice@heverfestival.co.uk.

Situated in the Italian Gardens next to the walled Rose Garden, the Guthrie Pavilion offers picturesque surroundings to begin your evening at the Theatre. Pre-theatre suppers can be enjoyed inside the elegant dining area, or outside on the paved terrace, both offering views of the lake.

Please reserve your table in advance when purchasing your theatre tickets to avoid disappointment as table to go fast for many sittings.
