The Riverfront is at the heart of the arts and entertainment scene in Newport.
A lively theatre and arts centre that brings as many people as possible into contact with the arts and creativity, with professional performances, film screenings and workshops.
The Riverfront is Newport's only professional presenting theatre and arts centre and has two theatre spaces, an art gallery, dance studio, recording studio, workshop rooms, conference room and licensed café.
The Riverfront Café is the perfect spot for pre-theatre food and drink, a catch up with friends or a casual business meeting.
Enjoy a late breakfast, lunch or a relaxing cup of coffee and piece of cake with views across the River Usk at The Riverfront Café.
Offering a selection of freshly made salads, snacks, delicious cakes and hot meals, free Wifi access, plus a range of coffees, speciality teas and drinks, the welcoming café on the ground floor spills out onto the outside terrace.
Each season The Riverfront staff hand pick a selected number of shows that will be perfectly complimented by an exclusive food and drink offer. All you have to do is add to your basket when you book your show tickets and we will do the rest!
The Riverfront Café is proud to serve a high quality range of products from a number of suppliers including Starbucks, Beth's Bakes and Tomos Watkin.
