A well kept a secret - a bit too well kept

I was really pleased with the service and the food but it was a good job we were a party of ten as the place was almost empty but for us and thus lacked atmosphere.

We had lunch in the Wallace Collection restaurant. I guess the price for a limited selection 2 course meal was not too bad for central London (£19.50). What was a bit annoying was that they added a 12½ % service charge. Nevertheless the food was very good. My wife had liver and I had hake, followed by a blackberries in... More

The food was OK.....but the venue is special.....somewhere quite different to go, yet just moments from Oxford Street bustle to the genteel atmosphere of this famous gallery. It reminded me of being on the continent.....too easy to forget you are in the centre of London. On entering, in the far right hand corner, is a very large corner table with... More

We ate here on Sunday as a paty of 8, including two children. The setting is excellent, in the Courtyard under a glass roof, and the tables are well set out. The food attempts to be trendy high class French, see website, but is only average. As is common the very first thing they do is try to get you... More

It is a fabulous place to have afternoon tea the cakes are mouth watering and the range of teas and infusions are all excellent. It is open daily. It can get... More

A delightful setting to have a civilised lunch. The menu was interesting without being "showy" and the liver we chose from the fixed price option was beautifully cooked - so often it can resemble leather in lesser restaurants. Staff were polite and timely. Only irritation - mentioned by others - is the 12.5% "service charge" which does not get to... More

My wife and I chose to book afternoon tea at the Wallace Collection restaurant. The very airy room is an attractive environment to enjoy a meal or just a tea or coffee. Staff are friendly and professional, though they did make a bit of a mix up with what they thought was a voucher I have them, when it was... More

Cafe and restaurant with different menus, but both waiter service, in glass-roofed courtyard. Friendly staff. Busy at lunch time but seated after short wait. Excellent celeriac soup & crab salad on cafe menu.

Staying in Marylebone

Neighborhood Profile
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.
