The Barbican is committed to quality, service and sustainability in the food and drink we serve at the cafés and restaurants in our venue


It is important to us that we offer a menu which is accessible to as many of our customers as possible. We take food allergies seriously and require our Catering Partners to comply with the Food Information Regulations 2014 and to design menus that consistently incorporate vegan and gluten free options to ensure that our audiences are well catered for, whatever their food preferences.
