The Restaurant at Natural History Museum

Squaremeal Review of The Restaurant at the Natural History Museum ?

Order at the counter, pay, find a seat & wait for delivery – that’s the drill at the Natural History Museum’s in-house eatery. The muted green furnishings in the spacious dining room complement the warm beige of the building’s stonework, but the lack of natural light creates a rather sombre & stuffy atmosphere – also be prepared for a high-decibel racket when the school parties & child-toting tourists descend. The menu reads like a not-so-thrilling roll call of junk-food clichés & old faithfuls, from stone-baked pizzas & cutely named ‘scoffasaurus’ cheeseburgers to shepherd’s pie & pappardelle in a creamy sauce – but with chefs from top caterer Benugo at the stove, freshness & quality are guaranteed. Prices won’t scare the dinosaurs, either.

Expensive. Tiny portions. Little different between child portion & adult bar price. Chicken undercooked & soggy skin. Kids didn't want to eat their food as it appeared so unappetising. Not value for money. Poor food quality. Will NEVER return

Half term week so the NHM was busy which is to be expected. We queued for a while (about 15 minutes) and waited to be served our lunch (about 15 minutes), but it was worth waiting for. The food was good, the staff were friendly, the environment was pleasant and our lunch was excellent value for money. All in all a great place to stop off for lunch during a museum visit.
