Surrey-based caterer Caper and Berry has won a three-year contract at Yvonne Arnaud Theatre in Guildford from incumbent operator Kudos.
The deal, worth £2.1m, will see Caper and Berry operate the theatre's 70-seater restaurant serving a menu of modern British, locally-sourced food.
It will also manage the venue's 100-capacity café, with a home-made food and sandwiches offer, as well as the foyer Champagne bar and private members' club.
Caper and Berry managing director and co-founder Tim Brennan said: "I believe that we won this contract as we have the small company approach that makes us responsive.
"It gives us the ability to be in tune with the theatre management to provide a constantly changing offer that works with their constantly changing schedule."
