Afternoon tea was way below expectations but maybe I should have been warned by the price

As the locals around us looked pleased to be there, perhaps my expectations were too high - 1. bread for sandwiches (smoked salmon, chicken, egg, ham and cheese) were super dry, like they had been sitting in e wind for too long 2. scone (1each) was nice, but perhaps we were not sued to the jam... read more

This was our first time to The Wallace Restaurant; we have visited for a lovely afternoon tea experience last Sunday. The location is fabulous and we were welcome by 2 members of the team who made us feel very special. The afternoon tea was first class and the scones and cakes were lovely and home made. The setting was very... More

The food was excellent. The moules mariner was great and the portion size was spot on. The kids loved the fries and salads and the ice cream and cakes were fab. The bonus was the museum with some surprisingly famous painters and paintings.

In the middle of what is a beautiful courtyard, could anyone not enjoy themselves here? It's the setting that wins all the awards here. The food was very good, it's not going to change your life but the cocktails were slurpilicious, service was friendly, and everyone else was just so damningly happy. Would I go back? Yes.

We met with 4 other friends for afternoon tea at The Wallace, which is situated at the back of the Wallace Collection gallery in London. Its in a wonderful position and the setting is amazing under a triple height atrium. The sandwiches had obviously been done in advance and were a touch dry. The scones, ok although not enough jam....

the food is unquestionably above-average; prices are above-average too but understandable in splendiferous surroundings - the problem was the long, long waits between courses and what should have maybe been a two-hour long meal ended up as three hours - i don't know why things were so slow - it was crowded, but ...???

Excellent in every respect and pull off the delicate balance of location and ambience. Thoroughly enjoyable coffee prior to Museum visit, light lunch to follow and this week-end a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon tea with my aged mother. I look forward to dinner in the near future.

Worst experience I have had in a long time. Mid-afternoon, by myself, after visiting museum I wanted a late lunch and a glass of wine. Wandered into mostly empty eating area - no signs up saying where to eat for 'real' food and wine (as opposed to cafe) or indeed what was on the menu. Sat at a table in... More

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.
