These characterful railway arches “have offered food for decades in various guises” (currently, as an outpost of the ‘Black & Blue’ chain); “for a quick bite pre-Festival Hall” it’s mightily convenient, but otherwise “you wouldn’t rush back”.

Summary

“For meeting up with friends before a South Bank concert”, this outpost of the ‘Black & Blue’ steak ’n’ burger chain – under the arches by the Festival Hall – is certainly hyper-convenient; otherwise, though, it’s “nothing special”, and “expensive for what it is”.

Summary

Incredibly convenient for the Royal Festival Hall, this outpost of steak ’n’ burger chain Black & Blue occupies a series of characterful railway arches; it rarely excels, but it’s still “better than some of the places on the South Bank”.
