Having wanted to go to and visit the Wallace Collection for a while, I thought I could entice my teenage son for company with a promise of lunch "out". We were not disappointed. I researched the menu on line first to ensure it fitted within my budget and was mildly surprised. £7.50 for very tasty quiche and green salad and... More

Ordered tea and cake, cake arrived after a couple of minutes pot of tea arrived twenty minutes later after making enquiries to find out what had happened to it . Milk for tea eventually arrived after asking twice for it!! We were then presented with a bill including 12.5... More

We arrived at 1 o'clock and we're served our one course lunch just after 2.30 after chasing it up every time a member of staff passed by our table. The food when it arrived looked delicious but my chunky roasted cod was grey and completely raw on the inside. I returned the dish but was told that's how the cod... More

We had to wait for 10 minutes to be seated as it was Sunday lunchtime, no problem to us, but the lady on the desk appreciated our patience,as some customers had been unappreciative of the problem. She arranged 2 tables for 2 to be pushed together for the 4 of us. Our meals came quickly as we had perused the... More

Third visit, giving it the benefit of the doubt. Such a wonderful room in a fantastic setting, but the service has always been dreadful and so unfortunately it continued in that fashion. A perennial central London problem in many good restaurants doesn't help; English not being the first language. When in Rome...yes struggle with communications, but not the City of... More

An early dinner last Friday. I have never eaten here before. It's a big room and it wasn't more than 15 per cent full. We had a warm welcome from the main man (so to speak). There were few diners and not many staff. 2 beers were produced very quickly and I ordered 2 martinis to follow straight on. Were... More

This is a place locals usually visit for an afternoon tea, a light lunch on Sunday, a baptism party or just to forget that outside is raining. There is a pleasant relaxed atmosphere and the quiet you will expect in a winter garden. The menu has French touches and the area is divided in two sections: 1- full menu restaurant... More

In the converted courtyard of the museum (free entry for a wonderful collection). Pleasant airy setting. It's popular even though it is off the main streets and is not signed. Call to reserve. Nice cafe menu. I had a good soup and a reasonable cheese plate. The other tables had pretty simple plates. All sort of cafe fare. The restaurant... 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.
