“Wee Bit Snooty for my Liking”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

Food is nice, but very overpriced for what it is. Put off by the snooty exclusive attitude of staff. Probably earn five times as much as them anyway ha ha.

“Educational Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2012

The word 'Cafe' is an understatement for the lunchtime experience we had there while visiting to see an Exhibition of Art from West Africa.(that in itself is worth a visit).
The soup was delicious as was the freshly made bread. Steak sandwiches on ciabatta with a savory salad was beautifully cooked and we ended with a Mocha coffee with a brownie to share.
First class cooking with friendly service made this a really pleasurable visit, worth every one of the 5 stars we gave them. The cost was really resonable.

“Unexpectedly good gallery cafe.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2012

This place really ranks as a near perfect place to lunch or snack while out wandering through a gallery. As good as anywhere as I have eaten in such surroundings and easily on a par with the basement Whistler in the Tate Britain or the Portrait on top of the NPG. Smaller and a little bit squashed in but spilling into the foyer and outside on fine days. Fresh tasty imaginative and excellently presented food and drink. Highly recommended.
