My friend & I called in here before visiting the V&A Wedding Dresses exhibition. There was a large selection of hot food which looked lovely but we chose to have coffee & cake

It's self service. You queue up at one of many different service areas and make your choices. You then queue again to pay. Having said that we didn't queue for very long. We had a choice of at least 10 different cakes or muffins and our coffee was good and hot. We both enjoyed our raspberry & white chocolate muffins.

I love the areas where you sit to eat. Heavy dark wooden panelling and amazing William Morris freezes around the walls. Another area had lovely stained glass panels. My friend & I hardly spoke as we admired our surroundings

The tables are regularly cleared and cleaned & nothing felt sticky or dirty.

The only negative was the length of the queue for the (unisex) loos but that happens all the time in London I'm afraid.

A nice place to relax & refresh during a V&A visit!

You purchase your food at counters and then have to search for seating. It was really crowded and people were ready to kill for a table. There must be a better system

Very good Food. It is really exhausting to have to always comply with your characters requirements. I do not have time to extend my comments.

The dining room is marvelous in its decoration. We really enjoyed our lunch here. We both enjoyed our food. We remember eating here nine years ago and returned for another good meal.

Friendly staff, lovely customers, grand piano being played, excellent cuppa and scones, not as expensive as expected (same price as costa).
Will go again.
