Food & Drink

Whether you’re coming to a show or looking for an atmospheric dining spot away from the hustle and bustle, Riverside Studios is the perfect place for eating and drinking.


At the heart of Riverside Studios, you will find our flagship Studio 8 Cafe & Bar. From lunch until late, our open-plan space serves seasonal and continental dishes, with locally sourced, fresh ingredients. From a sublime Cauliflower and Butternut curry to a range of shareable small plates featuring Wagyu steak, baked camembert, or Korean Fried Chicken, we've got every taste covered, with light bites, hearty mains as well as quick pre-show options. 

To accompany all this, we have an extensive wine list, drinks for every taste and a range of craft beers, including Meantime, London’s first craft brewery.

You’ll find the Studio 7 Coffee Shop in a quiet corner of Riverside Studios. On offer is a range of freshly baked goods as well as a variety of drinks, including the freshest roasts from coffee connoisseurs Rocket Monkey and ethically sourced brews from Suki Tea.


Sam’s Riverside is the new restaurant run by Sam Harrison (formerly of Sam’s Brasserie in Chiswick & Harrison’s in Balham). Situated next to Riverside Studios with a beautiful river-front location, Sam’s Riverside is an informal yet glamorous brasserie style all-day 90-seat restaurant and bar, with an outdoor terrace (open from Spring 2020) and a private dining room.

The modern British menu – evolving throughout the day from breakfast to lunch to dinner – focuses on the best of local seasonal produce. Oysters and other shellfish will always be on offer. The wine list has been specially selected by Sam, with the cocktail list focusing on aperitivo-style drinks.

The private dining room, for up to 18 guests, is ideal for enjoying a special meal as well as for meetings and business use. There is a AV and sound system available too.
