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.

It’s not easy to book a table for 5 adults and 5 kids with high chairs but you were so accommodating and did everything possible to help out on arrival. Food is delicious also!
As I've written a few times before, I've come to tresure SPIRITLAND and count m yself a regular. The other lunch time was particularly lovely as I was hosting two friends and their 9 month old daughter...the care everyone took with us--as well as the excellent food--plus the always engaging atmosphere..reaffirmed my deep affection for Spiritland and created two new fans, three if you count the baby!
great location, was expecting good music to be playing but there wasn't any playing. Service was slow, we were offered free drinks on the house though. we wanted dessert at the end but no one came to offer the menu so we asked for the bill and left.
Good. Just what we needed for a meal before entering Festival Hall.
Lovely evening great staff. Literally the only place you can find any decent food on the Southbank.
Delicious food and cool atmosphere
service especially good - helpful, friendly and prompt. Food all great, and everyone left v happy !
Excellent Will definitely return Even adapted pasta dish so vegetarian Thank you
The service was attentive and helpfuland the staff were really charming.We thought that the menu was lacking in imagination and we did have to wait a very along time for our main course even though the restaurant was not busy.However when it did arrive it was very well cooked and we really enjoyed it .We thought that having to pay extra for sides and sauces was not acceptable.
Really great night out for a couple or a group, music really out of this world and such a talking point. We will certainly be back.
I was really impressed by the quality of food, its presentation and the atmosphere at the venue. The sea bass in particular was excellent. All in all I would come again and have recommended to colleagues.
Good service, chilled atmosphere just slightly set apart from the madness of the eateries at the festival hall. Service was good, food was ok...certainly not bad, but not amazing!
Came here spefically to listen to some jazz, DJ was excellent, loved the music. Place has nice laid back vibe,
This is the 3rd time I've dined at Spitland RFH - each time I've visited the atmosphere/ design is excellent, the food is great, but the service is terrible/ incredibly slow! The staff really need to sort this out as each time I've visited I've booked a table for an adequate time (e.g. 1 1/2 hrs) and mentioned that we have a show afterwards at the Southbank and so could the food please arrive in suitable time. Unfortunately the food never arrives on time, I have to ask the waiter can they check our food order, and we end up getting the food 5 minutes before we have to leave (and rushing to eat what is very nice food.) It's really disappointing and something that needs to be addressed -we can't be the only customers who book a pre-theatre table at Spiritland!
It was my first time at Spiritland and I was really impressed with the venue and atmosphere. The staff were amazing... friendly and attentive. Would definitely come back and recommend it to friends.
Has the potential to be a great place. Decor is nice, booths are comfortable and generally good music (although the DJ on our last visit was poor - huge variances in volume between tracks really ruined the atmosphere). The food is good / ok but the service can only be described as dire. The staff are pleasant but there's clearly something wrong with the systems. Nothing comes at the first time of asking (or even the 2nd / 3rd / 4th) and most reasonable requests cannot be accommodated (why service a whole grilled fish if you can't provide a fish knife!).
Rather lacking in atmosphere at Saturday lunch.
Felt that veg options wee not so wide as previous visits and therefore left with chicken chips or steak chips as the options . Menu needs a re boot ?
Such a great evening, food was great, atmosphere was great!
I stumbled across Spiritland when looking for somewhere to eat, near the Southbank Centre. What a find it was! Booking was easy and Iona was incredibly friendly. Sadly we were stuck in major traffic, due to an accident in the Dartford Crossing Tunnel, and thought we would have to miss our meal but a quick call to Spiritland saw out reservation able to be moved without a fuss. We were welcomed warmly and loved the decor, ambience and music (real vinyl!) There was a marvellous drinks menu with an impressive gin selection! Our waitress was warm, friendly and informative (especially when helping my partner select a beer. She explained that the team had visited the brewery and tasted the beers so she was able to advise more accurately. My partner loved the choice!) Our food* was sensational. It came out quickly and tasted amazing! We were just sad we couldn't stay longer but we will return... * Olives, pitta and hummus then squid ink pasta with crab, lemon and chilli and steak and fries!
Lovely relaxing afternoon listening to tunes from Chris Philips and Jez Nelson. Only the brunch menu was available so will to do a return visit to samplebthe dinner menu.
Great laid back evening at Spiritland Festival Hall, good food and wine and excellent DJ/music. Lovely staff, especially the person that greeted us at the front desk.
I love the atmosphere and the ambiance at Spiritland and this was the first time I came to eat. The menu is fairly limited, but the 5 of us were very pleased with the starters and the mains. We perhaps chose unwisely for the dessert as didn't match expectation - my firends were surprised by ice cream accompanying the chocolate fondant, which were quite strong flavours which they didn't like and had been expecting a more traditional vanilla ice cream. It would have been helpful to have made that clear on the menu. The cheesecake didn't quite work for me, but more the flavours didn't come together as I'd hoped.
Excellent pre theatre supper!
My new first choice for a meal before a concert at the South Bank. Music both interesting and not too loud, a welcome change from so many places. Food and wine very good.
