The Top Bar
Start your evening in style with a visit to The Top Bar. Ideally located for theatre-goers within Guildford’s Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, The Top Bar has recently been refurbished and now boasts an exciting new menu with a focus on authentic Spanish tapas.
The Top Bar is the perfect spot in which to relax before or after a show, or simply to unwind with your friends after a long day. With a stunning view overlooking the River Wey, the atmosphere is cool and calm.
When it comes to dining, there’s an excellent range of tapas on offer – perfect for sharing over a glass of wine or two. Hot plates include lightly spiced chorizo in red wine, creamy garlic mushrooms, and king prawns with herb oil and black garlic. Alternatively, a selection of cold tapas, such as serrano ham, marinated squid rings, and top-quality olives provides the perfect accompaniment to a hot summer evening and a glass of chilled white wine.
The locally sourced Silent Pool gin is also a speciality at The Top Bar, and makes for a refreshing gin and tonic. Alternatively, if you prefer ale, try a tipple from Hogs Back Brewery – a Surrey-based brewery famed for its collection of distinctive, high-quality beer and ale.
With no advance booking required, a visit to The Top Bar can be a spontaneous treat. The bar is accessible via the stairs or lift, just off the foyer to the theatre.
