Square Meal Review of The Orangery ?

A beautiful spot for lunch or coffee in the heart of Kensington Gardens, The Orangery is probably worth a visit for its location alone – particularly on a warm spring day. Large floor-to-ceiling windows let plenty of light into the smart, white-painted room, which gets its fill of local yummy mummies & tourists. Lunch is a very English affair with sandwiches, scones & cakes on trolleys, while more substantial offerings might include smoked haddock fishcakes or a seasonal savoury tart with a light salad. Afternoon tea is also available for considerably less than you’d pay for a top hotel blowout. In summer, bag a table on the shady veranda (away from the kids’ buggies if possible) & survey the gardens below as you sip tea or a glass of something bubbly.

  1. Situated within the grounds of Kensington Palace which itself is set amid the parkland splendour of Kensington Gardens, Queen Anne’s 18th century Orangery is a great place for sharing that quintessentially English tradition of afternoon tea with out-of-towners in an historic London venue. It’s a smart spot to keep in mind when meeting with family and friends and a mere cuppa somewhere more pedestrian simply won’t suffice. I wish I would’ve taken my mom there last time she was in town...
