About KILN Café

MAC’s former café has been transformed into a vibrant and modern space with a refreshed, seasonal menu including stone baked pizzas using our very own MAC slow-fermented dough. 

We also serve a great selection of hot & cold drinks and beers, wines & spirits.

KILN is a unique dining experience for everyone, from families, to theatre-goers, to cinema lovers and all of you art explorers. KILN provides an accessible space for you to socialise, relax and enjoy delicious, homemade recipes.

Please note that menus are currently subject to change due to staff shortages and wider issues with the supply chain. Thank you for your understanding as we navigate some of the challenges being faced by many hospitality venues during this period.

KILN to Go

  • Our Express Grab and Go counter, located under our main staircase in the foyer, will be open everyday serving hot & cold drinks, sandwiches, salads, snacks and ice cream, to take away or to enjoy on-site at MAC.

KILN has been created with 2G Design and Build as part of a wider, ongoing redevelopment capital project, which began in 2018. The new café and restaurant is supported by Arts Council England (ACE) and players of the People’s Postcode Lottery through the Postcode Culture Trust.
