Published : 29/Jul/2020


To all our OMH customers old and new, we thank you for your support and patience during our recent closure. We're so happy to announce that we're now able to welcome you back to the Old Market Hall... OUTSIDE!

We're bringing the Cafe Bar to you, with the introduction of tables and seating outside in the heart of Shrewsbury's historic square, where you can enjoy our wide range of fine teas and coffees, locally made food and cakes.

To safeguard the well-being of both staff and visitors as the Cafe Bar re-opens, we have also made a few other changes to our usual set-up:

  • Upon arrival, please wait to be seated and use the hand sanitiser available

  • We support NHS Test and Trace as part of the ongoing response to COVID-19. You will be asked for a few details on arrival but it is optional whether you provide them

  • A table service will be provided by a designated member of staff. Please use the disposable menu provided to make your order

  • Card payments only, preferably contactless

  • Please maintain 2 metre social distancing during your visit

Our team have undergone extensive training in order to work safely to Covid-19 regulations which includes extra hand washing and sanitising, personal protective equipment and social distancing.

OMH OUTSIDE will be open 10am - 4pm, Monday to Saturday.

Whilst we are still unable to re-open our cinema right now, you can now enjoy film on the big screen again at Theatre Severn.

We can't wait to see you all soon, we've missed you.

Best wishes from all of us at OMH
