An incredible Paula Rego mural fills one wall of this airy restaurant/café in the Sainsbury Wing of the National Gallery; apart from that it looks safe & smart, with comfortable leather chairs & ever-so-trendy filament light bulbs. The restaurant deals mainly in lunches & follows the gastronomic trend for patriotic seasonality, sending out crab with pressed leeks & marinated pea shoots in summer, & venison loin with cider reduction come autumn. Alternatively, take the cheap, swift option by using the daytime bakery, where you can eat pulled-pork & pear-relish sandwiches, bacon & egg tart with thyme, British cheeses or all manner of cakes, buns & cookies from the Peyton & Byrne ovens – afternoon tea is quite a goer. To drink, around 20 decent wines are served by the glass.
