Dining Location Recommendations Close to Premier Inn County Hall London

My wife and I would appreciate dining recommendations (restaurants or pubs with good food) within a short walk or perhaps a short tube ride from Premier Inn County Hall London, where we will be staying. We prefer outside dining if weather will allow us to do so in the first week of October. Please advise if reservations are needed. Thanks!

You will find a Nando’s inside Waterloo Station.

3 pubs The Camel and Artichoke, The Duke of Sussex and The White Hart are within walking distance of the Premiere Inn. Each serve food.

Vaguely remember a Japanese restaurant in the area as well.

Meson Don Felipe is a gem. Tapas, so that might not suit your dining style, but a great spot.

The Anchor and Hope is somewhere I've been told is good, but never eaten there. The street where it resides, The Cut, is somewhere good to walk to if you don't have reservations and want to take a chance on a walk up, as there's several places.

I'm a fan of Turkish food, so if I was in your position I would consider trying Ev.

Cubana is a fun little spot. I've been there for drinks a few years ago, as it's one of the best late night joints in that area, but the food seems to be well regarded.

Padella is somewhere I have eaten, again some years ago, but it still gets good reviews. I can confidently say it doesn't accept reservations. They have some sort of "virtual queue" using an app these days rather than standing outside waiting for a table.

Somewhere I've been for drinks that is very close is BFI Riverfront. I went there for a drink after a screening at the BFI some months ago and had a pleasant walk along the Southbank, a couple of whiskey sours down, on the way home. Their menu looks good to me and there's definitely outdoor dining potential, if luck is on your side in October.

These are all what I'd consider walking distance. The world is your oyster if you decide to take a tube journey elsewhere.

There’s a selection of decent chain restaurants under the Royal Festival Hall with seats and tables outside with riverside views. This is on the South Bank walkway. It’s a very short walk east along the river from your hotel. There’s also a fancier restaurant and a bistro within the Royal Festival Hall itself called Skylon which has lovely views.
