6 of us had lunch there today. The weather outside was warm and sunny and under the glass roof it became almost unbearably hot. We all ordered our food and one starter didn't arrive. When we finally managed to grab a waiter's attention it turned out that the particular order was not on their list. So, 15 minutes after everyone... More

Formed from the very large courtyard behind the mansion, with a very high glass roof, forming an atrium. Airy and light, quite unique. Good menu and excellent food. The service is casual and slow and frankly sloppy. Only go if you have plenty of time to kill.

A first class restaurant within the Wallace Collection. Lunch included seafood salad with finely shredded salad and an excellent dressing, poached Turbot in a wonderful slightly hot and spicy sauce and with seafood filled Ravioli, then to finish Peach Soup with Raspberries a kind of smoothie. All first class with good bread brought to the table with butter to start.... More

I went here with my parents and my fiance and his parents - the parents were meeting for the first time!! It was a really lovely place for this special meeting. The restaurant was so light and airy, it felt like being outside but under the covers of glass ceilings. We all had afternoon tea - it was really lovely... More

This is a lovely setting, outdoors with roof cover, and nice light. The food was really nice, the wine was nice and the bread was really good. Our food was excellent but it appeared that the staff was overwhelmed. We had four or five different service people and they seemed stressed. Perhaps the museum is on budget and cannot afford...

A lovely, airy place for lunch. We arrived before our husbands, ordered a drink and waited in this pleasant space. We opted for a light lunch, the smoked salmon and the salmon & dill tarts were excellent, expensive(this is London) but good, we followed this with slices of delicious cake! Overall, a lovely experience. By the time we were leaving... More

The perfect end to a tour of the Wallace Collection, either lunch or tea. The desserts are delightful as are the fresh salads. The location in the museum itself makes it a natural for a great afternoon.

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.
