Lasdun at The National Theatre

A seafood-led British brasserie restaurant from the team behind critically acclaimed Hackney Public House, The Marksman’s.

Named after the National Theatre’s architect, Denys Lasdun, this restaurant takes inspiration from the modernist design and the rich, diverse culinary history of London, with a menu reminiscent of an old English grill room. With seasonal, locally sourced ingredients, showcasing the very best produce Britain has to offer through a classic yet contemporary lens.

In a nod to the riverside setting, British seafood features at the forefront of the menu and there's a marble Oyster counter, with a fine selection of seafood whilst London cured smoked salmon and smoked eel will be on display in a bespoke fridge. Some of the Marksman’s signature classics are sure to be on offer, including seasonal pies to share, buns and a new take on the famous Brown Butter & Honey tart. Grilled chops, baked whole fish and classic sides will also feature. 

The design incorpoates the existing brutalist aesthetic, reinstating some of the original features with added elements of wood and brass to create a dining room in keeping with the building’s heritage.  Open for dinner between Monday and Saturday, and for lunch in tandem with matinée performances on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
