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

Attended for a celebratory afternoon tea for 40 people. Of course an area was reserved, but on arrival (yes, some 5-10 minutes before our allocated time - not unreasonable given the number of us preparing to decend), we were told the space would not be available until 3pm and could see there were 2 tables still in our area. eventually...

I am ashamed to admit that I did not know this place existed until my friend invited me to her 60th birthday lunch on a Monday in March. The house is magnificent typical over the top Georgian décor in a quiet Square in the centre of London and all to be viewed free!! Now the courtyard restaurant, set price limited... More
