Food & Drink

Union Chapel BarUnion Chapel Bar

The bar is located on the first floor in the Chapel’s original Lecture Hall.

Open to ticket holders only, the bar opens at the same time as the doors to the show.
Drinks served before, during and after the performance.

You’ll find many delights on offer – fine wines, a selection whiskeys and bottled beers including our very own beer, 1877 Union Chapel Pale Ale!

1877 is a pale ale brewed by the lovely folk at The Crafty Brewing Co.

The name reflects the year the Chapel was built and was chosen as the winner of a competition that saw over 450 entries. The label showing the Chapel was designed by Juliana Futter.

All the money raised from the sale of this beer goes towards the conservation of the Chapel so why not try a bottle next time you find yourself in Union Chapel bar!

Please note that alcohol is not permitted in the Chapel, so drinks should be finished in the Bar.

We take card payments and contactless payments in the Bar and there is no minimum charge.
