Getting two watches mended ...note to world, there is a great watch-mender concession in the Debenhams store on Oxford Street (use the entrance opposite the little chapel where William Boyce was organist). So while I wait for the mending to take place thought coffee at the nearby Wallace Collection might be a nice treat. 'Wait' is the mot du matin!... More

We had expected to be charmed by the courtyard setting but found ourselves tucked away behind a palm tree facing away from the restaurant so unable to 'people watch' and somehow felt unsettled by this. The menu looked a little unbalanced, two fish dishes on the main a la carte, and less on the prix fixe menu, so we decided... More

The ambience is very good, the restaurant being situated in a glass-roofed and airy courtyard. Service was quick and attentive, though we arrived early for lunch and it was not busy. By the end of our light meal in the cafeteria section (table service), it had become fuller but the service continued to be quick. Two stars lost, though, for... More

Called into the tea room after visiting the Wallace Collection. The "outdoor" setting was very nice. We were told to sit where we wanted but none of our choices were acceptable to the staff. Eventually we agreed on a location and we asked for English breakfast tea for 2 with Victoria sponge and carrot cake. The Victoria sponge was off... More

We went there after reading a recommendation review online. Very disappointed, to be honest. The tea set cost £17.5 per person, excluding 12.5% service charge. The set is simple, and the cakes were tiny (finger size) and the worst in the set. Truly you can get better cake from anywhere. Finger sandwiches were supermarket taste. Scorns were OK. Earl grey...

For a decade my wife and I have loved the Wallace Collection in London and its excellent restaurant. The art, furniture, and porcelain are world class; the dining is a superb compliment to the collection. On Saturday, August 8, I had a two hour layover between two trains. I decided to make a quick visit to the Wallace, by tube... More

After a saunter around this breathtaking museum and art gallery, and being stunned by the fact that "The laughing Cavalier" is on the wall, something i would have thought would have been found in The National Gallery, and seeing some spectacular oriental armoury a step through a door to the quadrangle and lo, a glazed courtyard, superb cakes and food,...

We met with our friends for a reunion lunch on Tuesday 11th August 2015. The service was polite but very slow The food was delivered to a serving station and sat on the tray for a good 5 minutes, while the staff in question served the desert to an adjoining table. When served with the food it was cold. When... More

I like Peyton and Byrne restaurants and food so when I saw a photo online of this restaurant at the Wallace Collection I was keen to try it. We were in London just for a weekend break and looked forward to seeing the collection and having afternoon tea after shopping on the Saturday. The glass roof and trees in pots... More

Having visited the Museum we called in just for tea and cake. This is a lovely conservatory setting, old fashioned and stylish with excellent service. It attracts a certain clientele making the whole experience just, very nice indeed.

Staying in Marylebone

Neighborhood Profile
Marylebone
Marylebone offers what so many London neighborhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.
