Definitely my favorite tearoom I have been to so far, the Wallace Collection Restaurant provides a beautiful atmosphere for a afternoon tea. I have been here three times now and each time have had a delicious and pleasant experience. I usually get the Cornish tea: a pot of English breakfast tea, four finger sandwiches, and a scone with clotted cream... More

Recently, after many years, revisited the Wallace Collection. It was better than I remembered, and there was the added attraction of a restaurant. I was not aware of this, so we had brought some sarnies with us for lunch. As we were still peckish, I decided to push the boat out, and we went for afternoon tea. The setting is... More

I have to go along with some recent reviews complaining about long waits. I was eating alone at about two o'clock and wanted a light lunch so sat in the cafe area. I ordered poached salmon and a cider. The cider arrived promptly, but not the salmon. Eventually - after about ten minutes - I was approached to be told... More

I have no idea why some people have complained about this restaurant or the service. This is a lovely, calm and civilised oasis in the heart of buzzing London and the service is very friendly and efficient. Evelyn, our lovely French waitress made everything possible so my friend and I will spend few relaxed hours talking and drinking. The food... More

Today, 4th June, I took my wife to the Wallace Restaurant in Manchester Square, London to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. I made the booking at around 10:30, but when we turned up at 12 there seemed to be no record of the booking. Luckily there was still a table available and we were quickly seated. We were given a...

We just dropped in for a cup of tea. Lovely tea room. Nice staff. Cakes and bits were good. This is a great place to escape the bustle of the West End.

We went to the Wallace restaurant as a party of 3, last Sunday. We opted for the restaurant rather than the snack area. We took starters and main dishes (22 GBP for the 2 courses menu) Outside the grandiose setting, the whole thing was a terrible and frustrating disappointment. First, we had to wait forever for our dishes (45 minutes... More

We had booked a table for 2 at 1.00pm and arrived on time and were seated within 10 minutes! Drinks were served promptly and meal ordered and then we waited and waited; the restaurant was not exactly busy and we did not understand the delay; after 45 minutes our starters arrived and the main courses were well-timed. We did have... More
