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.

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 the menus? Then to compound the issue the bottle of wine we ordered was also off! Mind you, when we did get a bottle it was parked in its ice bucket yards away from the table so we had to chase the waiters when our glasses were empty. The food was – well small! Tasted and looked good but just felt seriously poor value for money. My Italian friends were impressed with the coffee which really did not make up for the rest of the meal. With about 40 restaurants within a 5 minute walk there really is no reason to go to the Wallace for lunch – even if visiting the Collection

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 cut back on buying in food and had been caught on the hop the day we went because “so many people had turned up” However, if we were happy to wait, she would pop over to Waitrose and get something…! The birthday celebration turned out to be a bit of a damp squib and The Wallace has lost 7 potential repeat customers.

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 of us emerged for only £19 with main courses but no drinks. Service was fine and I would definitely go again
