john gray left this review about The Understudy

Good addition to the Southbank.Good range of craft keg beers normally on but not that expensive considering the location.As it was London Beer Week they had 7 beers on from American brewer Rogue (go figure). £6.90 a pint but you got a free donut.I had Ansbach and Hobday-the Dated Dubbel (they should have given me a free pancake) as the beer was as flat as the proverbial pancake. Only £3 for my half of flat keg.Barmaid overcharged me as well.Tut tut.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Understudy

Craft beer bar, established in 2014, located underneath the National Theatre with a substantial front patio beside the Thames-side walkway so very busy in fine weather. Modern furniture and decor inside, with the main feature being two large Meantime 'brewery fresh' tanks. Good selection at a wide range of strengths from a total of 12 keg taps, but not cheap e.g. my pint of Beavertown 5.4% Gamma Ray APA at £5.60.
