Concrete Cafe

Take a moment to watch the world go by with a drink or a bite to eat in our Queen Elizabeth Hall Foyer.

Looking for the perfect place to take a break? Our glass-fronted Concrete Cafe is the ideal spot to recharge, or catch up with friends, whilst the bustle of Central London and the River Thames carries on around you.

As well as getting your caffeine fix with Well Grounded coffee, or relaxing with a brew, you can enjoy favourite light bites from our Royal Festival Hall’s Riverside Terrace Cafe, including seasonal soups, sandwiches and bakery treats, with plenty of vegan options. There are also a number of new additions to the menu for you to discover.

Refurbished in 2018, with rich indigo blue glazed tiles, and satin brass features, the Concrete Cafe also serves as a stylish evening bar. What could be better than a cocktail or a cold beer as the sun goes down over the Embankment opposite?
