For over one hundred years, the name Tyrrells was synonymous with Southampton, an ever-present on Above Bar Street through times of prosperity and adversity. Opened in 1897, Tyrrell and Green was one of Southampton’s most famous department store names renowned for its quality and service, with a proudly local Southampton twist.
In early 2018 the grand old name will return to Above Bar Street. Reinterpreted, but with the very same principles at heart - quality and service – Tyrrells will bring the finest local food and drink and speciality coffee to the heart of Southampton’s new Cultural Quarter, overlooking Guildhall Square.
A restaurant, a bar, a cafÃ©.
A restaurant that takes inspiration from the finest locally sourced food from around our county served with our city’s best hospitality at heart.
A bar that serves up beers from some of our city’s most exciting breweries alongside fine wines and crafted cocktails.
A cafÃ© that serves deicious coffee and the finest loose teas alongside home-made cakes, afternoon teas and light bites.
All within a landmark building overlooking the stunning Guildhall Square and central parks, whilst neighbouring one of the most exciting theatre developments in the UK, NST City.
Tyrrells will be open every day, for exceptional food, a coffee with a view, a post work drink or as an accompaniment to visiting the theatre. We look forward to welcoming the people of, and visitors to Southampton in February 2018.
Sam Hodges, Director of Nuffield Southampton Theatres, said, “Reconnecting communities with the rich heritage of this city is very important to us as storytellers and theatre-makers. The launch of Tyrrells on the original site of one of Southampton’s landmark institutions from the past as part of what we hope will be one of its landmark institutions of the future feels absolutely right.”
