Why not treat yourself to some lunch at Food @ the Mercury before your matinee performance?

Our lunch menu is available from 90 minutes before the performance start time and includes cooked dishes and sandwiches. We also offer a children’s menu and snacks menu. So that you can keep your options open, we won’t take your menu choice in advance, but we do recommend you book a table.
