I have lived in London for 20 years and find standards of customer service very high in most places around town. Rarely do you experience a member of staff demanding a customer to rudely leave as they have entered the premises with roller blade wearing child in tow (it's a park after all). A quiet polite word would have sufficed.... More

Visited today to meet friends. A tiny bread roll with pulled pork and none of the promised cabbage coleslaw was £9.50. When I asked where the coleslaw was I received a teaspoon full. Flavour was pretty bland. Small plastic bottle of water £2.00. You have to queue and order from the till so its hardly relaxing place to eat. Tourists... More

Great place for lunch in the park. When sitting outside the birds can be VERY problematic. The food is light, fresh, creative. The beer selection is small but good.

This spacious, open-plan kitchen and coffee bar is situated right beside the Serpentine in Hyde Park, on the Park Lane side. It offers a really lovely place to relax and enjoy a drink, light snack or a more filling main meal. There is both a take out or eat in service with seating inside and outside too-depending on the weather!... More

The location is nice considering you can eat outside. The dishes are of good quality and the choice is wide.

Came on a cold wintery January Saturday morning, I had a bacon sandwich and my partner had the Eggs Benedict and Salmon. She had the same dish in Fortnum and Masons the day before and didn't even come up to the same mark as the Chefs in the Serpentine Bar and Kitchen. She was so impressed that she made a... More

Food poor and tasteless. I found a weird wild herb inside my rocket salad. Expensive for what they offer. 2 vegetarian burgers and 2 wines more than £40

Great views but very expensive. £10.20 for 2 coffees and 2 biscuits. Very busy but plenty of outdoor seating and near to toilet facilities

After a stroll up and down the South Bank and a vit of shopping it was time for lunch. A short walk through The Rose gardens of Hyde Park and you come across the Serpentine Restaurant. This is quite possibly the best location in London to lunch, enjoying a drink and lunch overlooking the always busy Serpentine lake is something... More
