We didn’t have a reservation but got a table in the bar and were content. The food was very good and wine too. The staff so and so, a little distracted but pleasant.

As you first enter The Wolsey it makes you feel proud of all things British and of London. Lovely surroundings and great selection for a breakfast/brunch. Service could be slightly improved.

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of
London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is
haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is
vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even
