very elegant but relaxed setting, good atmosphere, afternoon cream tea excellent, service excellent. Not cheap but good value for a treat. Very pleasant occasion, much enjoyed overall.

    Really impressed with the Christmas menu. Service and food excellent. Could have been warmer in the restaurant, so wrap up!!

    Lovely 3 course set meal. The atmosphere and setting of The Great Court was bliss. Arrived 30mins early and not a problem sitting me earlier than my prebooked time given the restaurant was busy.

    On a cold day, the restaurant was cold - but the food was excellent and we love the idea of the themed menus to,accompany whatever is the current major exhibition. Service was excellent too.

    Nice ambience, very friendly service. Never rushed us. Portion sizes a bit small but tasty.

    Only major criticism was the restaurant was freezing! We had to keep our coats on. Food was good, also the service was cheerful. Rose wine was disappointing.

    An excellent Restuarant in the British Museum but set away from the hustle and bustle of the museum activities. Friendly and helpful staff serving very good food from a well designed menu. A perfect rest in a busy day at the museum. My wife and I both had fish - well cooked and presented.

    The food was over priced and very average. Sandwiches were stale and did not taste good. Service was poor, staff were disinterested and slow.

    Cold temperature. Good first and second courses. Dessert bit of a nightmare.
