KERB at The Understudy, Upper Ground, London, UK

Enjoy a taste of London’s diverse street food flavours at KERB’s space at National Theatre.

The year-round kitchen is located next to The Understudy, National Theatre’s riverside craft bar with indoor and outdoor seating. Inside you’ll find a choice selection of local independent street food traders.

As of 2023 KERB at Understudy’s traders include the award-winning Bad Boy’s Pizza Soc, famous for their crispy square-shaped Pepperoni alla Vodka Sicilian Pie which won ‘National Pizza of the Year’ at the National Pizza Awards 2022. There’s also Mumbai Mix, known for their flavour-filled vegetarian Indian thalis and snacks and the famously spicy Nashville-style Lucky’s Hot Chicken.

In the summer months KERB spreads out onto the square in front of the iconic theatre building with a variety of food trucks and summer pop-ups.

Open all day long, this is a great spot to grab a tasty lunch on the go while strolling the Queen’s Walk or to enjoy a quick and casual meal before heading into a show.
