Here at the Buffini Chao Deck, we have a wide range of culinary options to meet every type of event. The NT Food and Drink Team - made up of Compass and KERB - can draw on everything from London’s top independent food traders to bespoke dinner menus designed by our Executive Chef.

Using organic and locally sourced ingredients is at the core of our mission; our aim is to provide food and service that reflect the National Theatre’s vision and quality.

The team’s love of the London culinary scene, combined with their creativity, offers exciting and inspired seasonal menus, whether it’s canapés and cocktails, a barbeque on the terrace with views of the River Thames, or a formal three-course seated dinner.

You can choose from our exciting menus or even talk to our team about creating something bespoke if you’re after something a little different. Alternatively, KERB - as the UK’s leading street food organisation, works with some of the best independent food traders in the country - some of whom are located right here at the National Theatre.

All of our packages can be tailored to suit your exact requirements and we’re experienced in delivering unique catering options for any type of event.

The Buffini Chao Deck has a fully stocked bar on site, staffed by our professional and experienced bar team. When designing your event, we can advise on great wines, craft beers and can even serve a personalised cocktail unique to your event.
