Squaremeal Review of The Wallace ?

You wouldn’t know it from the outside, but as well as housing many covetable treasures, the Wallace Collection also boasts a unique & rather beautiful restaurant. Oliver Peyton operates a handful of such venues in auspicious public spaces, but this pink-toned, glass-covered internal courtyard, edged with columns & filled with trees, really is something rather special. Less trendy & more timeless than many nearby venues, the restaurant is full-on French, with the carte offering a riot of frog’s legs, rillettes, chèvre & fruits de mer, supplemented by bistro-style dishes such as roast corn-fed chicken with foie gras & spring greens or seared sea bream with lentil casserole & rosemary jus. Café options include breakfast, quiches & terrines at lunchtime, while afternoon tea is delivered in English or Parisian style.

Disappointing restaurant in beautiful situation

by   (4)

Jun 2013

Thought this restaurant would be a great idea to break up a visit to the wonderful Wallace Collection. There is so much there to see that it is difficult to take it in without a break. The situation is lovely, in the light-well of the building and it looks nice and feels airy. However as a restaurant I'm afraid it just does not work. Having been given our menus with no comment it was incredibly frustrating to be told on ordering that so-and-so main course was off. Why not tell us when handing out...

We chose the Wallace restaurant to celebrate a friend's significant birthday as it was supposed to be “special” Specially awful was a better description! Everything we chose from the menu was “no longer available” – this included starters as well as main courses. There was no menu du jour only the vegetarian menu. We couldn't have chips as the chip maker was not on duty. When I asked the maitre d' for an explanation, I was told that the restaurant had been very quiet over the Olympics so they had...

Not many people know that a few yards from the bustle of Oxford St is this oasis of calm and tranquillity, set inside a beautiful historic home, surrounding by a fascinating free museum. It’s not trendy, but it’s charming and attractive, with the courtyard feeling warm and cosy even in winter. It’s a great place for a casual lunch with a friend, but would feel an odd choice for a business lunch. The restaurant has two parts, a proper restaurant and a lighter food part. I ate in the latter and three...

    Whistle and Bango :: The Wallace Collection Restaurant | The London Whistler

    The Wallace Collection, a national museum in Marylebone W1 is not normally where I hang out on Saturdays, but I was recently told of the court yard restaurant – a hidden gem, a guarded secret, until now.

    The Wallace Collection’s stunning courtyard is the glamorous location for Peyton and Byrne’s French-style brasserie...

    One of the things I love about London is the many free museums and art galleries that one can go to and spend a few happy hours at.
    Hertford House which houses The Wallace collection is nestled in a quiet street just off the buzzing Oxford Street.The stunning historic townhouse is home to 25 galleries housing everything from world class armoury to Old Masters paintings.
