I've visited many different restaurants in London but I still think the Wallace is the best one from my list. I came back there for a familiar afternoon tea couple of months ago. I realized that never wrote a review for this place before: With no doubt, the best tea in London is here. If you are a tourist and... More

A rare find for us at Manchester Square was the Wallace Collection. It is an art collection in London open to the public, housed at Hertford House in Manchester Square, in the City of Westminster, the former townhouse of the Seymour family, Marquesses of Hertford. It comprises a world-famous range of fine and decorative arts from the 15th to the... More

a lovely relaxed lunch before joining the guided tour. The quiche of the day was Salmon and was served with dressed Iceberg lettuce. a lovely pot of tea. Staff were attentive and considerate. All set in a quad in the centre of this wonderful building.

I had lunch here with my friend this week and it was just as well we had plenty to talk about as the service was pretty poor. I think even the booking had been a bit of a stuff up on their part too. Food was ok , we were given some cold chips with our starters to compensate us... More

We visited the Wallace Collection at Hertford House and chose to stay on for a snack of Advocado on Toast, coffee and a hot chocolate. The service was slow even though there weren't many people in the cafe. The prices for the meals were on the high side. We ate in the snack section of the cafe, but there is... More

Lunched earlier this week with a friend before visiting the Collection again. The cafe and restaurant are both housed in the covered courtyard but are quite separate concerns with very different menus and, this time, we ate in The Wallace, the restaurant. Food is not inexpensive and the restaurant is part of a small chain - each restaurant that I... More

I had never visited the Wallace Collection but booked a table in the restaurant. The area is absolutely beautiful. Whilst the dinner menu was limited in choice, we chose different dishes and agreed that they were all delicious. The service was excellent, especially the attention from Ernest. Clearly the cafe/ restaurant is very busy during the day which left us... More

Would recommend to go see how beautiful the place is inside, so nice and english / European. We went for afternoon tea...the mini sandwiches were a bit bla but i would still go back and maybe try the menu next time. Walking distance from Hyde Park! Tucked away but near hustle and bustle so if you are nearby...drop by!

Ideal little pit stop tucked away from the crowd. Glass roofed courtyard so still great on a rainy day, but almost outdoors on a sunny one. Friendly staff, tasty cakes, a great find

The room is lovely. The location is lovely. Too bad the food and service are always average. Although, on this last occasion I had the afternoon tea and it was quite nice. But the service is never good...

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.
