Situated in the Florence Hall, on the first floor of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), this elegant dining room is a haven of peaceful luxury. Grand proportions, floor-to-ceiling windows, sumptuous semi-circular banquettes and a stunning wood and marble floor set the mood, with regularly changing architectural exhibits adding a special charge and an alfresco terrace for warm days. Allcomers are welcome at lunchtime, when the kitchen conjures up a broad mix of international dishes with a European bias: starters of ham hock terrine or poached salmon with seaweed and lemon jelly might precede shepherd’s pie (made with slow-cooked Texel lamb shoulder), saffron linguine, beer-battered cod or seared sea trout with hollandaise sauce. Note that the dining room is open from 8am for visitors who want to eat from the menu in the adjoining all-day café.
