The Cut says
We are an independent bar, restaurant and café housed in the Young Vic theatre's award-winning building just off the South Bank. An airy open space with an exclusive terrace in the vibrant neighbourhood of Waterloo and Southwark, we have been a popular destination for theatre-goers, local workers and our neighbours since our opening in 2006. Known as the UK's outstanding theatre bar we have been serving an eclectic mix of guests to eat and drink surrounded by London's outstanding cultural institutions such as Old Vic Theatre, National Theatre, The Globe, BFI and Southbank Centre.

Our drink selection celebrates the best of both local and global. We work closely with several breweries to bring in the very best beer on our rotating taps. Our cocktail list is well crafted, unique and fun. We have worked with Allpress Espresso in Dalston for several years for our house coffee, with guest beans coming from Copenhagen’s remarkable Coffee Collective roastery. Our independence ensures that we have the freedom to find and offer quality products which we are proud to serve.

The kitchen is all about fresh and seasonal food from organic, free range and sustainable sources. We work hard to get our hands on the best ingredients we can, and we never buy from anyone we don’t know by name. Book for breakfast, lunch, burgers, à la carte, our famous tapas or simply reserve an area for drinks.

Really good food, amazing drinks, stylish atmosphere, super nice staff, inside of the coolest theatre venue: I think I like this place... :)

It’s no wonder even people who are not watching anything there still want to hang out there. The Young Vic has amazing productions, and it is truly delightful to be able to get there early and have dinner before and/or have some drinks after a play; it really complements the experience. Super recommended!


Great bar, delicious food, lively atmosphere - what more do you need?! The burger is always excellent and when the salad contains a poached egg it is also very happy days. Good selection of wine and beer, plus fancy coffee. Lovely little balcony/terrace overlooking the cut for a bit of 'fresh' air.
