The Royal Festival Hall is a fitting setting for the second outpost of Spiritland, the music-focussed restaurant and bar. As with their King’s Cross location, this spot is moodily lit and full of a wide-spanning menu that jumps from sweet and sour pork belly to a kohlrabi, orange, and fennel salad. The drinks menu is extensive, which is perfect for when someone is on the decks in the evening, and the kind of experimental but all-encompassing menu makes it a bit of a no brainer whoever you’re with. It’s especially useful for when you’re on the South Bank, desperate for somewhere that’s not a chain restaurant filled with demonic children. Which could just be an us problem, but feels like an all of us problem.
