Nuffield Southampton Theatres (NST) today announces the opening of the café bar Tyrrells at its new venue, NST City with award winning chef to the stars Jay Geddes in the kitchen. The new look theatre café bar will be serving healthy seasonal Hampshire food designed to mix and match and share.
Southampton chef Jay Geddes has cooked for Adele, Rihanna, Beyoncé, the England national football team and the royal family. He has also worked at some of the south’s top restaurants and hotels and is a keen advocate of local produce. At Tyrrells, he has designed a menu of mix and match small plates divided into land (meat), sea (fish) and earth (anything grown naturally) with many choices for vegans and vegetarians.
Jay Geddes, Chef at Nuffield Southampton Theatres said “I have designed a menu featuring small plates which can be enjoyed and shared when time is short; at lunchtimes and just before a performance. With this concept, I can also change the menu regularly and seasonally. All of our food is made fresh and sourced from a small radius, within 25 miles. ”
NST City opened earlier this year in February. The venue in its first seven months of operation has sold over 35,000 tickets and received national critical acclaim for its NST productions The Shadow Factory, Streetcar Named Desire and SS Mendi Dancing the Death Drill. NST’s current world premiere production, Women in Power (running till 29 September) is a musical comedy. NST runs NST City alongside its existing theatre, NST Campus, on the University of Southampton’s Highfield Campus.
