Square Meal Review of The National Dining Rooms ?

An incredible Paula Rego mural fills one wall of this airy restaurant/café in the Sainsbury Wing of the National Gallery; otherwise, all is safe and smart, with comfortable teal leather chairs and ever-so-trendy filament light bulbs. The restaurant deals mainly in lunches and follows the gastronomic trend for patriotic seasonality, sending out anything from crab salad with Jersey royals and seaweed ‘popcorn’ in summer to roast rump of lamb with cockles, samphire, saffron potatoes and wild cabbage come autumn. Alternatively, take the cheap, swift option by using the daytime bakery, where you can eat smoked salmon and beetroot salad, quiche, chicken and butterbean stew, artisan cheeses and all manner of cakes, buns and cookies from the Peyton & Byrne ovens – afternoon tea is quite a goer. To drink, around 25 decent wines are served by the glass.
