Waterloo Bar & Kitchen Description

It would be difficult to find a more conveniently situated restaurant and bar than Waterloo Bar and Kitchen. Less than two minutes walk from Waterloo Station and next door to The Old Vic Theatre. Having been there for some 8 years it recently changed hands and has been given a facelift, a fresh modern menu and a totally new Private Room.

This is the place if you are looking for the cosy, relaxed ambience of a bistro combined with that of an open kitchen, light, high ceiling large restaurant. The food and service match the ambience. The menu is simply cooked and presented and served by staff

who would grace any elite eatery. Head Chef, Milton Steiger, sources the freshest seasonal ingredients and insists on making everything himself; from pate or Cumberland sauce to lemon tart, or chocolate fondant, nothing comes pre-prepared.

Open seven days a week; customers who just want to chat over a bottle of wine will be as welcome as those eating three courses. In addition to the normal menu, an added attraction at the weekend are the tempting ‘all day’ brunches like smoked salmon and scrambled eggs or the good old ‘Full English’ When the sun shines there are even tables outside for the al fresco experience.

Situated in the basement is a private room which can accommodate up to 30 people for a sit down meal or up to 50 people for drinks or canapés. This function room is quickly becoming a popular venue for birthdays and leaving ‘do’s’. Businesses in the know also value the convenience of the location together with the projector, screen and private bar, ideal for meetings, lunches and dinners.

Where better to eat well and enjoy a drink or two in private whilst watching events like The World Cup - just two minutes from your train home!

“I originally visited the Waterloo area to eat at Waterloo Bar and Grill, but it seems to have closed down and been replaced by one of those ghastly chain places! And so I decided to explore a little further down the road and I came across Waterloo Bar and Kitchen. A brief glance at the menu and the nod from my girlfriend found us inside the rather busy restaurant. However, the smiling manager seated us quickly, our drink order was taken in minutes and the food not long after. We soon learnt that the business was due to the Old Vic theatre being next door, and we were thrilled that, once the restaurant emptied before it's second rush, we were offered a more comfy booth table. We went for the mussels and the pate to start with, both were excellent and tasty. The main meals of the lemon sole and lamb (both from the specials board) were also perfect - my sole was cooked to perfection. We had decided to take go for starters over dessert, but after seeing the next door table receive a warm chocolate brownie, we had no option but to share one with some double espressos - heaven! We washed the food down with a rather lovely Chablis and thoroughly enjoyed our evening!”

“Perfection! This is a restaurant we had not stumbled across before, but boy were we glad we did! The staff accommodated us despite a rather busy restaurant which emptied when the Old Vic theatre opened just after 7, and then filled up again. The wine selection was excellent, the dishes were cooked to perfection - especially my steak served perfectly 'blue'! A fab night.”

“Fantastic location. For my 28th Birthday I used the lovely new function room and for the first time in my memory everyone could find the place without dozens of mobile calls. Great service and food as well. The girl tending our private bar was tasty as well. What more can you ask? Try it.”

“Just wanted to pass on the name of this place as it's somewhere decent to meet near Waterloo. Manager said it has changed owners in the last few months. I took clients for a lunch which was going to be business so their well cooked modern food, excellently presented, fitted the bill. The wine list looked good. Will use it when we go to the Old Vic too.”
