The National Cafe & Bar
Offering all day brunch (from 9.30am - 5pm) to exhibition-inspired pre theatre dinners. Join us for dinner any night of the week and delve into our menu of British and modern European dishes. Our head chef is truly passionate about quality British ingredients and sources all our meat, fish, dairy and veg directly from artisan producers. Our location makes us a great choice for quick pre-theatre meals, but we’re best enjoyed when you have time to soak up our lovely surroundings and wine list.
Excellent service and response to single diner. Food a real surprise in quality and price. Will definitely return.
Great food excellent service and comfortable surroundings. Nice feeling of space.
Excellent restaurant for a pre-theatre meal after spending a couple of hours in the National Gallery. Quiet, smart, yummy food and excellent service. Highly recommended.
The National Café came up trumps for a quick business lunch near Trafalgar Square. Service was extremely efficient and courteous, especially impressive as we needed to eat early and quickly. Menu is limited, but the dishes ordered were very flavoursome. Two or three course options are available. Ambience is fresh and lively but not noisy, with comfortable seats and the tables well-spaced.
Really lovely afternoon.
Great food, service and location. Ideal for pre-theatre dinner
Attentive service and not too crowded. Interesting menu. Will visit again when in central London.
Outstanding location with cozy seats and friendly staff
I am a regular customer and have recommended the NG Cafe to my friends and family many times. The food is reliable, the atmosphere has a low key buzz so that conversation is not impeded and the service is always friendly and polite. The perfect pit-stop for a culture day out.
The advertised menu (brunch, salads & sandwiches) was no longer available, forcing us to have a set 2-course meal which they struggled to serve in the tome we had available.
Good as ever. A favourite lunch place between exhibitions.
