Restaurant description

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.

Dishes displayed on a la carte menus are representative of the type of food available at the restaurant.

    Very good for pre theatre

    Very busy on arrival at 6pm with the pre-theatre crowd but service remained friendly and efficient. Quietened down about 7.30 so if you want a quiet evening dinner with no theatre plans, book a bit later. Food was excellent, largely vegetarian but with enough range for all. My friend had 2 starters for main course, whilst I had a main and there were no issues with ordering this and the dishes arrived at the same time - which doesn't always happen and showed that not only had the waitress understood but she also passed it on to the kitchen.

    We both enjoyed the food I had Salmon and Pearl Barley Risotto my companion had Short Rib of Beef. Unfortunately there was a problem with the order not being put through at the time of order, so we had a long wait (over 30 minutes). Once we queried the delay we were dealt with efficiently and the waiter came to apologize personally and we were given complimentary desserts for the inconvenience. I was impressed by the way they responded to the problem.

    lovely relaxed cafe-style restaurant with friendly staff; its very central and handy and the price that is paid for that is that the tables are small and quite closely packed together
