    Lovely dining room

    A nice dining room, location chosen for its proximity to Buckingham Palace for our visit later. Great value carvery lunch for £24 for two courses. Nice atmosphere and very attentive staff. I have also had afternoon tea there on a previous visit which was also very good.

  • ((((* 20 June 2016 by Dani Martin from Chatham

    I am going to sound odd but I didn't realise that this restaurant was in the Reuben's hotel (first mistake was we kept walking past it not realising!) once inside the service was amazing and the food was lovely with your standard carvary set up. We did feel a little underdressed as wasn't prepared for such an extravagant setting. The staff were polite and friendly, and had a wonderful time!

    Ideal place for a quick dinner before the theatre. A three course buffet/carvery only on offer in this restaurant. Roast Beef or Roast Lamb on offer plus a seafood or vegetarian option on the buffet. Beef delicious. The rest a little dried out and sad looking under the hot lights of the buffet - at 6pm in the evening.
    Staff delightful and very very helpful.

    Had the afternoon tea here as a birthday event and it was fabulous. Great service and amazing food. Highly recommended

    Really enjoyed our evening
    Lovely atmosphere and great service. The food was exceptional (apart from the weird mushrooms in the mushroom sauce that I had with my steak- tasted like they were dried porcini mushrooms that hadn't been hydrated fully?)

    Afternoon Tea at the Rubens was a wonderful experience, mainly because of the service. The staff were super helpful and friendly - dealing with all of our requests quickly and efficiently. The food was delicious and the cocktails were lovely. Highly recommended.
