SquareMeal Review of The Cut



This buzzing theatre bar and café attracts a lively bunch of Young Vic patrons and locals from breakfast through to last orders. Start the day with a muffin and a stiff espresso, and end it with a hot toddy or a mug of chocolate. In between, well-made cocktails combine fresh fruit with premium spirits (Waterloo sun is a mix of vanilla vodka, apple schnapps, apple juice and cinnamon), and the good-value wine list includes a drinker-friendly choice by the glass; there's also a small selection of fine vintages, all from boutique producers. Hungry drinkers can nibble on Szechuan chicken wraps or load up with juicy burgers in Sally Clarke’s brioche buns; otherwise, the menu runs from Waldorf salad to Finnan haddock fishcakes and spaghetti carbonara. Should the sun come out to play, book a table on the first-floor terrace.

A lively and buzzy cafe/bar with a short but varied menu; vegetarians are particularly well looked after here much to the delight of my veggie companion on this occasion. Her portabella mushroom burger was a sight to behold, served with a generous helping of fries. My crab linguine was tasty and packed a real chilli punch but could have done with an additional ladel-ful or two to make it a more substantial main course. Service was efficient, engaging and friendly and I would certainly stop by again for a pre-theatre meal. Not sure of using it for anything else to be honest, as the seats seemed to have come straight out of a school classroom, so we were quite glad to vacate and move to the slightly better comfort of the theatre.
