It’s ok here and the location is good but the food is ok but not brilliant. We have been a few times and will go again. It ought to be as good as the best gastro pubs with great burgers and cool nibbles but it somehow hasn’t achieved that yet.

There is a new burger menu but my classic was average. The duck burger my friend had was better. The rest of us drank and ate happily but it wasn’t the food we remembered first.

Great service but poor food - had the baked fish with veg - both of which were seriously overlooked. Made me think it had just been reheated which is disappointing, particularly for the price we paid. Also, felt they wanted us to finish up quickly and leave...

Great place, but very overpriced for what it is. £7.50 (if memory serves me correctly) for starter of some raw veg, small pot of humus and some cold flatbread is a bit much. The burgers at an average of £15+ were tasty and good quality, but small. Great location and staff though.

The perfect spot for supper before going to the theatre, but I'm sure it would also be a place for a more leisurely casual meal too, especially when the weather is good. Very friendly and efficient service which is what you need when you are under a time constraint. Good burgers. Fun atmosphere helped by the sunshine.

The Green Room has the best chocolate chip cookie (offered as choc chip cookie and milk dessert for two) in London if not worldwide! Have taken several to try it and so far no one is disappointed.

We've been here quite a few times recently before going to the BFI and it's always been an enjoyable start to our night. The food was ok but service on this occasion was pretty poor - you got the impression they were maybe a bit short staffed - unopened bottle of wine plonked on the table, really slow, no water top-ups and our food was only just warm thanks to sitting under heat lamps for 5 minutes.
We'll book again as it's a great location and usually a good atmosphere but it'll probably be the last time if there's a repeat performance of last Friday!

We thought the Green Room was a really good alternative to eating in the National Theatre. It had a lively, buzzy ambience. Unfortunately, the table next to us was a birthday party and it was just TOO noisy. We asked to go near the window, but the folding doors let in a gale, which the staff tried to ameliorate with sticky tape. Our pork belly was not hot enough, but the staff were good and said next time we are there, to remind them and they would give us complimentary drinks. The food was acceptably average, but the staff were great and efficient.

My second visit to the Green Room but very disappointing. We went for a pre-theatre meal and as we arrived so did a party of about 20 people. We told the waitress we would like to order before the party did as our time was limited. Our starters came promptly and were very nice. The party did not order starters and we had to wait until all their dishes had been served, in fact we had to ask for our main courses. When they arrived my veggie burger was cold and my companions beef burger was over cooked. We were offered replacements but did not have enough time to wait again so they took the drinks off the bill, which was fair. I don't think we'll be returning in a hurry.

Nice enough place, but don’t open on 27th December if you don’t have any ingredients! The duck, the salmon, the pumpkin pie was not available - leaving one option for non meat eaters.

Not very good.

Good food, good service good location and prices you’d expect from this type of restaurant in this area (certainly not cheap but not extortionate either). Great for a pre-theatre tipple or nosh.

Just across the plaza from The National Theatre, The Green Room, provides delicious food with an eye on the clock. We made it to our curtain perfectly on time, even though the weather was filthy and every kind of transportation was delayed. Treat yourself to the chips. They are divine!

Sunday evening pre-theatre meal.
Chicken wings and calamari both delicious.
I was told the burger was decent.
The salmon burger was weird. A reconstituded patty heavily seasoned with chives and onions, which didn't really taste like salmon. Not horrible... just not as delicious as a salmon burger seemed on the menu.
Peach Melba desert was well received.
Mint tea was, sadly, from a teabag.
Staff really nice.

Had a tasty pre-theatre dinner on the outside terrace. On such a lovely sunny evening, the food was a great compliment. We shared delicious calamari to start with. The crayfish macaroni was a large portion and very tasty. My husband had the salmon caesar salad, which he also enjoyed. I would recommend the ambience here for outside dining during the summer.
