We will be closed for a private event from 7pm on Sat 20th July

The bar

In addition to the cinema we have another beautiful space - our bar & restaurant.

Inspired by the original curved ceiling, the decor celebrates the heyday of cinema with velvet, beads and the best bar lamps ever! Making your visit to The Castle Cinema a truly memorable occasion that harks back to Hollywood's heyday and the picture palaces of the 1920's.

Catch-up with friends before the film begins and after the credits roll pull up a chair to discuss what you loved. And even when you're not joining us for a screening, it's perfect for getting a bite to eat and a drink or two, or three. We’re also fast becoming the go-to place for a little ‘work from home’ action with our wifi, chilled vibes and creative atmosphere.

We serve the awesome Dark Arts coffee (and we don’t charge extra for oat milk!), and have an array of cakes and pastries with plenty of vegan options. In fact, even our pick-n-mix is vegan! We have a range of toasties, including the famous ‘Kimcheese’. Check out our full bar & cafe menu here.

Fri-Mon evening, the incredible LUK BROS take over our kitchen.
Luk Bros are an independent, family-run modern Chinese kitchen & convenience store, who have been providing the hungry of Hackney with delicious dumplings & scintillating small plates since 2023.
Luk Bros service times
Fri-Sat: 5.30-9.30pm
Sun: 3.30-8.30pm

If your thirst needs quenching, then we have cocktails, a great wine selection and an amazing line-up of local beers, with everything from lager to porter and plenty of seasonal specials.

Members - remember that you get a 10% discount on EVERYTHING (including Luk Bros)! Flash your card and be awesome.

The cafe-bar is open daily from 10am until late.

We don't do table reservations, but if you'd like to hire out the whole space we'd love to have a chat. Check out our Private Hire page for more information.
