About Spiritland Royal Festival Hall
Come home to music.
Spiritland Royal Festival Hall brings an early-morning to late-night celebration of food, drink and music culture to Europe's largest arts centre with a 2:00am licence for extended aftershow drinking and dining.
We offer a breakfast, lunch and dinner menu, as well as brunch at weekends.
The new space offers deeper culinary discovery by way of newly-appointed Group Head Chef Moondog (The Providores and Tapa Room) overseeing our open gril. Our New Zealand-born chef brings his intrepid antipodean nature and flavour-forward style to a fresh and inspired menu of sharing plates and unapologetic twists on classic favourites.
There's coffee, juices and freshly baked goods for takeaway during the day, and if you're just after a pre- or post-show drink we also offer an extensive cocktail menu.

Great vibe from the music. Good portions.
Not very attentive service when it came to taking order and asking if we needed more wine, etc. But the food and music scene is inviting.
I should start by saying I had a 6pm booking last Friday and had no trouble at all. Unfortunately this Friday was a different story altogether. Our order was given at 7:10 and the food didn’t come until 8:00 (after we reminded the team twice). We had two/ three mains slapped on the table at 7:56 and the third dish+ sides turned up a few mins later. This forced us to wolf down our food in 15 mins so we could pay our bill and get to a 8:30 show. Not really anyone’s idea of a good meal. Your staff are perfectly pleasant but there also seems to be an insufficient ratio of waiting staff to diners. One of the people I was with, reminded me that we had a similar experience when we were there at the end of April i.e. waiting ages for food and not being able to find waiters when we needed them.
We absolutely loved our ladies lunch spent with you yesterday. The food was delicious and well explained. We had a vegetarian with us who was delighted with the selection on offer. We drank sparkling water with a squeeze of lemon which was perfect. Thank you. We will come again.
Attentive but not smothering service. Food reasonably priced and good portion sizes, comparatively expensive drinks (£6.75 for a pint of draft). Good atmosphere, music initially great but then volume was increased (20:00) and it was too loud (even as music lovers). Would recommend. Would return.
Service was super slow. Food ok but we made it very clear that we wanted a properly rare steak but it came very medium. Main reason for visiting was the music but was very disappointed that, for the second time, the main system and living voice air partner speakers were not in use.
We had a late night dinner at Spiritland. The quality of the food and ambience was very good. I would definitely visit again and have recommended Spiritland to friends. Thank you for making our visit a memorable one.
Food and drink was great, brilliant vibe too. Only let down was particularly slow service. It wasn't a busy night but between every course we needed to try hard to grab someones attention. This was frustrating but something that could be fixed. Next visit will be to the bar as opposed to food.
Food was so so. The Calamari w Aoli was okay but for £6.50 it really could have done with something else on the plate for presentations sake - even just a few nice crispy dressed leaves would have elevated it adequately. My main course Sea-bass fillet was cooked well but poorly accompanied by dry unimaginative roasted fennel. Either braise it or use a lot more oil whilst roasting. Fennel is a fibrous plant and requires those fibres to be broken down sufficiently before serving. Disappointing. The £5 side portion of “Israeli chopped salad” lacked character. Just a basic preparation of tomato/cucumber/onions - which could have been great if the ingredients were of quality but this stuff looked like it’d come from Lidl, and it looked tired and bored - like it had been hanging around in a fridge for a few days. Was it even dressed? We didn’t bother ordering dessert. Also, at one point a roaming waiter almost snatched up my glass of Kombucha for no apparent reason, then another cleared my friends starter plate whilst I was still eating my starter. This is really basic stuff. Perhaps less floor staff and better training is the way forward. The £1,000,000 sound system sounded good but shame there wasn’t a dj spinning some vinyl at 6pm Thursday in central London - it doesn’t seem like a lot to ask.
The steak was very very chewy. The burger was dull and without any greenery. The steak came alone so any sauce, chips or veg was extra making it very poor value for money compared with other similar restaurants in the area. Service was over attentive, I can poor my own water thanks.
Great atmosphere, great music, great food!
The Music was far too loud; our waiter either forgot to put in our order or / if it was as he said - the chef forgot or misplaced our order. We waited far too long for our mains in an atmosphere where we could not chat because of the music. Finally our waiter should have cautioned us that the sides were enough to share, we ended up with fries for two and new potatoes for at least 3 or 4. Had we known we would have ordered one potato and one veg, we chalked that up to his inexperience.
Enjoyed a few drinks in the bar, good value and great atmosphere. Will be back!
First visit! Brilliant, I have already recommended this to my colleagues and will be returning very soon. Bev
Nice place with good music, food and drink. A little bit pricey and whilst tasty the portions are small. Staff really friendly but not quite on the ball enough to make it a seamless experience. Would definitely go back.
Had a wonderful Sunday night in Spiritland - superb chicken roast with veg, followed by an evening with Jarvis Cocker. More of these types of events please!
Excellent cocktails and everyone commented on how cool and welcoming the staff were. Music sounded great and lovely atmosphere in the space. The whole grilled seabass was particularly good.
Everything great but music was a bit loud for us. Possibly because of our seat location which was near the speaker. Food was fantastic though!
Beautiful space and atmosphere, only issue was the music was *very* loud for a Sunday lunchtime when there were only a couple of people in there. Appreciate the sound system and DJs is integral to the space and concept, but a touch quieter and it would have been perfect
Food absolutely superb, interesting wine list with a welcome presence on German, Austrian and Hungarian wines, music and ambience excellent, service informed and careful (there was an allergy to take into account). Highly recommended.
The best place on the Southbank to get a great cocktail along with a wonderful meal. Just a really relaxed vibe with a great wine list & wonderful service that hits that perfect balance between attentiveness & allowing you to enjoy yourself.
A lovely brunch, very friendly service
