Add The Old Market Assembly to your Itinerary

The Old Market Assembly


At The Old Market Assembly you’ll find an independent venue serving delicious food, live music and a great sustainable cultural venue for people to come together. It’s also home to the Wardrobe Theatre.

The menu is seasonal and sustainable, offering plenty of vegan and vegetarian choices and delicious pizzas, with bases made from the Assembly Bakery next door. Their drinks and wine list is sustainably sourced with natural products and biodynamic wines, so it’s no wonder they were awarded the highest rating from the Sustainable Restaurant Association.

There’s live music every weekend with great live music to get you up and dancing, or stop by for a quiet coffee and catch up with friends. Guest DJ’s and a diverse line-up of live bands make Saturday night a great time to stop by.

At The Old Market Assembly you’ll find an inclusive community, with ‘Junior Jungle’, an early morning family rave, or family days full of activities, toys, crafts and colouring and a carefully crafted kids menu.
