In Eating

Looking for a bite to eat before that big musical or drama you’ve been looking forward to all year?

Forget jiggling food around your belly as you make a last minute dash from restaurant to theatre.

Make clambering into the stalls in a food sweat before the show a thing of the past.

You’ve waited so patiently all year for this, so why rush to the show in a post-meal panic over missing the opening number?

For those who didn’t know, Pier Eight Restaurant at The Lowry offers a pre-theatre dining experience that shouldn’t be missed.

Sit and relax in Pier Eight, a short stroll away from the stage, while head chef Oliver Thomas serves up some of the best locally sourced and seasonal ingredients from suppliers across Lancashire and Cheshire. His menu focuses on simple dishes and flavour pairings, using ingredients and produce that shine in their own right.

Chill out whilst you hear the front of house manager welcoming guests to the Salford arts centre and announce the auditorium as open before taking a leisurely stroll to your seat.

At a reasonably priced £22 for two delicious courses, or £27 for three, your visit to the theatre couldn’t be more stress free.

To top it all off, you can even have pudding in the interval.

Book a table either when you purchase your theatre ticket, call 0161 876 2121 or email the restaurant manager Mike Lee on
