The Waterloo Bar & Kitchen / Restaurant décor creates a very relaxed and intimate dining experience, yet our high ceilings and open kitchen keep the room fresh and spacious. The floor staff are efficient and professional and they understand how to be attentive without being intrusive.
We pride ourselves in the quality of the food we serve in our restaurant. Our Head Chef and his team source the most fresh and seasonal ingredients, creating twists on home-made classics from Chicken Liver Pate with Toasted Onion Brioche and a Cranberry Port Sauce to a Lemon Drizzle Cake with Creme Fraiche and Lemon Coulis. The restaurant also features various specials everyday.
The restaurant is the direct neighbour of the Old Vic Theatre and it is only two minutes walk from Waterloo Station. Many Old Vic customers join us post-theatre as the restaurant is so close to many transport connections.
The Waterloo Bar & Kitchen is located a short walk from Waterloo Railway Station.

                                                                We had a reservation for the Waterloo Bar & Kitchen for Monday evening before going to the Old Vic Theatre. The email confirmation arrived the day before. I found my friends standing in front of the closed and shuttered restaurant at 6pm. No sign of life. No apology from Open Table. And this website is still taking reservations for WB&K-- I just checked. Not good. Thankfully we managed to get the last table at La Barca and had a wonderful Italian meal. But I am not happy about this.

Why do you book people into restaurants which have closed, don't you check? Not going to book through Open Table again.

They immediately acknowledged both and scrambled to take them off but it was a slow evening, very few customers, no excuses for a mistake like that. Check your bill, people!

Friendly, informative and we felt that she genuinely was enjoying her interaction with us. The food was fab, the wine recommended was perfect. 3 courses and a glass of Prosecco for £25 was great. We'll definitely be coming back.

                                                                We enjoyed a delicious meal at Bar & Kitchen Waterloo which is just next door to the Old Vic--it couldn't be more convenient for a pre-theatre supper. I had a lovely artichoke/olive/tomato salad followed by some grilled cod which was excellent. Service is always quick and efficient. My friends had never been there and really liked their meal too. Highly recommended.

It was just what we wanted and we were all impressed with the quality of the food. The thai spiced sea bass with coconut rice was superb! There were cocktails on special offer and I would recommend the one with gin, cranberry juice and lime.

Service was poor - seemed disorganised, would bring food over and then we’d have to ask for cutlery, wine glasses. Staff weren’t rude just some didn’t seem interested. The restaurant was very quiet (although we were there midweek).
