“Brilliant Cuppa”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

The cup of tea is tasty and the lemon drizzle cake is enjoyable, and such a great location, sitting in the wide expansive courtyard.

Elegant dining with good food and a great location! Whilst meandering thru the museum, this was a wonderful spot to sit, absorb the surroundings and enjoy a delicious lunch (or tea)!

“Not good value even by London standards”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Four of us went here for lunch for on a cold Saturday a few weeks ago. Lovely setting,relaxed environment and sensibly spaced seating arrangements are the principal plus points but the quality of the food on this occasion in no way measured up to the gracious surroundings or indeed to some of the more lavish praise heaped upon the place in other reviews. More specifically,two of the principal dishes were seriously sub-standard.The ham and potato croquettes lacked,almost entirely,any porcine content and the papardelle with mushrooms and truffles were absolutely minus any sign of the latter!! Pasta with mushrooms alone while of good quality far from justified the hefty price tag.Likewise potato croquttes sans jambon. We eat out in London a fair amount and,on this showing,you can find better quality at lower prices not far from here.That said, the service was generally good with a few minor lapses only and the wine list offers a reasonable range at slightly above average prices even by London.standards. It may be that the underlying food quality is good but on this showing it would be difficult to offer a recommendation unless you are just passing through.

“Very surprised by the quality”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Annoyingly we had to order 2 courses but my main (homemade pasta with mushrooms and truffles) was worth it.
