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 had dinner at The Green Room before going to see a play at the NT so it was ideal, as it's just behind the theater. The service was fast and very friendly and the food was excellent. I had the lamb flank and the waitress felt she had to warn me when I ordered it that it was a fatty dish, as some people don't like that. I thought that was good of her. I'm guessing some people have complained before because of this issue. Personally, I didn't mind it at all. I thought the meat was tender and very juicy. I enjoyed it very much. I would definitely go back to eat there

    Pretty perfect. The grilled padron peppers were deeply addictive. My lamb and rosemary hot dog was tasty, though next time I'll ask for it not to be smothered in gummy onions. The fries were swell, my partner's cod with mushy peas was flavourful and the special Angels in America brew was great. Service was great!!!

    Fantastic food at very reasonable prices, friendly and helpful staff (nothing was too much trouble for our waitress) and so close to the Southbank. I would definitely recommend The Green Room to anyone. We've been a few times now when we've been visiting family in London and are always impressed. Thank you.

    A Monday night. 8.30. Quiet. Very spacious room. Short menu . Helpful and chatty staff made us welcome. Unhurried and a generally laid back atmosphere. Food well prepared. Nothing to spook the horses. Useful for the NT, BFI opposite. Good value.

    Excellent Caesar salad....tho' gf simply means they leave out the croutons...not that they make gluten free ones! Very convenient location for theatre and awareness of theatre time by staff.

    More than delightful attention from a "budding" artist. And efficient too with a charmed prehistory, a combo involving Hackney Cream, Kiev Downs and/ or Cornish Chickens or some such. We were wittily confused. Lovely beer but comestibles a tad dry, too long under the lamp perhaps but we enjoyed ourselves. Diolch yn fawr. Tim D

    Well located next to National Theatre. Spacious, buzzy restaurant, friendly service and great food - sharing starters like chillie squid with dip & mains like grilled hake with samphire..

    Good to have a choice for vegetarians - staple very nice vegan burger and also something seasonal. Save room for a dessert.
