We went for lunch again at gallery mess and had an amazing lunch. We chose a two course meal and a glass of wine for £26.95. It was absolutely delicious and a really good sized portion. The service was great and surroundings very relaxing.

A very thoroughly and precisely prepared food, tasty brassiere dishes, a little bit too pricey. Had only the main course the duck and a fish and the apple crumble dessert, was enough to make us very full.

I have been in many museum cafes around the world and never seen one that is so different. The food and service are great. After spending the morning at the Saatchi Gallery I have my lunch at the Gallery Mess. I especially recommend the burger.

Fantastic location. Delicious food. Great staff. Best poached eggs and asparagus. lovely fish. Good coffee. the space is very well thought out and even with a lot of people it is not loud. Tables are well spaced out.

Food good but nothing out of the ordinary for Chelsea. Quite good wine list, very pleasant service and attractive decor. Reasonable value for money for location.

Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's
upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops,
eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at
its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely
unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this
showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price
tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down
pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal
