Step backstage at the National Theatre’s new restaurant, The Green Room.
Don’t miss your guide the best happy hours in London!
Taking a trip to the National Theatre is always at the top of our to-do list and thanks to new restaurant The Green Room, it’s a trip we’ll be making far more often!
The perfect winter hideout, with exposed beams, alpine décor and roaring fire pits outside, The Green Room’s interior also gives a cheeky nod to its theatrical roots, with playbills and posters scattered around and memorabilia-filled prop tables that you can eat off.
The casual menu, developed by the NT’s Executive Chef Simon Flint (formerly Head Chef at The Groucho Club, Le Caprice and The Ivy), focuses on locally sourced ingredients and is full to the brim of winter warmers that you’ll want to nibble on pre or post-theatre.
We loved the baby back pork ribs, slow roasted and marinated in their secret recipe BBQ sauce, while The Green Room Burger, made with Prime Buccleuch beef, Monterey Jack, pickles, onion marmalade, was good enough to make us start planning our next visit back there and then!
Inspired by the NT’s Prop Store pop-up bar, The Green Room is a collaboration between local social enterprise Coin Street Community Builders and The National Theatre, and is the perfect Thames-side neighbourhood restaurant we’ve been waiting for.
