The Green Room in London serves ethically sourced British food in a contemporary and theatrical space. In collaboration with local social enterprise Coin Street Community Builders, the National Theatre presents an innovative restaurant, bar and garden, where all profits support the National Theatre and local communities.

Mixing American diner dishes with British classics, The Green Room menu is packed with mouth-watering meat, fish and vegetarian dishes. Meat-lovers can try slow-roasted pork ribs marinated in barbecue sauce, or the signature burger made with prime beef, Monterey Jack cheese, and an onion marmalade. Equally enticing are the hearty grilled calamari with pesto and slow-cooked winter vegetables, and the spicy vegan sloppy Joe with black beans, jalapenos and chipotle.

Inside The Green Room from the National Theatre, props and scenery from the theatre’s shows create a unique dining space. Outside, a sustainable garden creates an urban oasis a stone’s throw from the Thames.

A short stroll from The London Eye, The Green Room South Bank is a 6-minute walk from Waterloo Train Station.

    We always book this place before going to the theatre. Staff are always friendly and the menu is small but interesting. They have great cocktails and mocktails. Three of us ate, sharing two starters between us worked perfectly. The two veggies had spinach and potato dumplings in a delicious pea sauce. Hubbie had steak, perfectly cooked he says

    Good food served promptly. Vegan burger was excellent.
    Only problem is the noise level which as it gets busy makes conversation difficult.

    We had a lovely lunch here - delicious food, (amazing to have a vegan roast!) friendly staff and great atmosphere. And we could bring our dog Ted who made it onto your Instagram page! We sat out on the terrace in the lovely garden but loved the inside design of the restaurant and looking forward to coming back in the winter to eat inside with TedDog.
    We will definitely come again and recommend to friends.
    Thank you
