Had tea and cakes as a pick me up as we were visiting the Wallace collection. It was only early afternoon but they had run out of some cakes. A reflection on the demand from customers. What we had was very good. I got the impression that many people come here to eat without visiting the house so it can... More

Beautiful place for afternoon tea. Delicious scones and cream, nice tea selection. Disorganized staff, nobody really seemed to be in charge here, we had to ask twice for plates, cutlery.

Booked afternoon tea for a large family group for my birthday. We arrived and the table was all set up and ready, due to having lots of us with dietary restrictions the hostess was very accommodating and gave us a few different options to accommodate us all. We had mentioned some of them previously over the phone so that they... More

The restaurant is in a lovely courtyard flooded with light from the huge lantern overhead. The menu is interesting but somewhat pricey for what you get. We have been here for coffee and for lunch on a couple of occasions and have found the service to be rather inefficient (and not particularly friendly). The chili con carne was tasty (small... More

This is located right in the museum and you have two choices. The Bistro or the regular restaurant. The restaurant is more expensive than the bistro. I would recommend the avocado toast. It was wonderful. We also had their soup of the day which was butternut squash and carrot which was absolutely delicious.

My husband, our three kids, my in-laws and I had lunch at the Wallace recently. The booking was made for 1pm but was easily changed to midday. The restaurant area is gorgeous. Service was good. The kids menu is not extensive but definitely had great choices for my 3. Two had pasta, one had fish & chips. The adults were... More

Booked by telephone in the morning, with a friendly and cheery voice,upon arrival was told the booking system was down, but the lady remembered my by name, and couldn't have been nicer. Very nice starter and mains for the five of us, and generally unobtrusive service, but don't keep asking how things were, please. Not a cheap meal , but... More

Dinner on Saturday evening at the Wallace was a pleasant affair, and it was difficult to understand why the place was so empty. (We spoke to the maitre d' after our meal, and he said Friday nights are very popular, but it's harder to get people in on a Saturday.) The menu was an original display of mostly Mediterranean inspired... More

Have eaten at the Wallace on several occasions and yesterday was the best. Excellent fish starter and very good lamb cooked nicely pink (plenty of it too). Loaned-in young manager from the National Gallery is clearly making a difference. Great ambience under the glass atrium but not a venue for hot summer days NB. under-floor heating makes for a comfortable... More

I came for afternoon tea with friends and was very disappointed. The service was possibly some of the worst I've ever experienced, miserable, rude unhelpful staff. Because some of us shared a plate tower our scones were put on the same plate which was fine, but when we asked for more jam and cream (because we were supposed to have... More

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.
