“An absolute treat of a covered courtyard nestled behind one of London’s oddest museums” – the Wallace Collection, off Oxford Street, which mixes fabulous Old Master paintings with fine furniture and armour from the age of chivalry. But despite the “polished” setting, “the menu is unenterprising”“a shame because it is a very lovely space to eat in”. Top Tip – go in the afternoon – “there’s a wide selection of teas” and the cakes are fine.

A “real hidden gem” – the spectacular glass-ceilinged atrium at the Wallace Collection is a “great place to bring visitors to London”, just off Oxford Street; and serves breakfast, coffee and lunch every day, plus dinner on Fridays and Saturdays. For a full-blown meal, its “unhurried” service can grate, as can cooking that’s only “so so”. But where it undoubtedly scores is as a “lovely setting for a classic relaxed afternoon tea”“all very nice and proper”“with an excellent museum attached...”

The beautiful glass-ceilinged atrium of the Wallace Collection museum in Marylebone provides the “perfect atmosphere for tea – very civilised and respectable”. “The café’s food (from caterer Peyton & Byrne) is hit and miss, service not brilliant but the space is really impressive”. “Always does the trick for a business meeting – so much better than sitting in a coffee shop”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
