The Terrace

National Theatre, South Bank, Upper Ground, London SE1 9PX
Weekdays 17:00-20:00. Sat 12:00-14:00,17:00-20:00



The TerraceSet on the Lyttleton side of the famous National Theatre, Terrace Bar and Food is a popular addition to the South Bank icon. With views over the Thames and a warehouse feel to the simple, modern d?cor the Terrace is a chic, urban hangout where young professionals and arty types come to enjoy a few drinks and nibbles before a show or just because. The concrete ceilinged dining room is always busy and buzzy but in the summer months the action moves out on to the terrace where the sun is soaked up and London views taken in. In addition to nibbles with a Middle Eastern flavour and a don't-miss-it mezze board heartier meals can be enjoyed as a full dish or as smaller mezze portions.
