Gallery Mess is a stunning dining space inside the Saatchi Gallery, serving a variety of menus all through the day, including champagne afternoon teas. Inside there are vaulted ceilings, exposed brickwork and fine art on display, while the tranquil al fresco terrace overlooks The Green.

The Gallery Mess menu starts the day with a variety of options, ranging from hearty full English breakfasts through to freshly baked pastries. Saturday brunches feature unlimited bloody Mary and Champagne options, while the afternoon tea menu offers up a selection of British sandwiches, scones, cakes, and even mini afternoon tea options for kids.

Enjoy seasonal British flavours on the main menu at Gallery Mess in Chelsea, starting off with English asparagus with crisp hen's egg, followed by Spring lamb rump with wild garlic and rissole potatoes. There is a diverse wine list full of international vintages, and all kinds of colourful cocktails from the bar.

A true step above the usual gallery dining options, Gallery Mess is a beautiful restaurant in London that sits just 3 minutes' walk from Sloane Square Tube Station.

    Great place.

    Went for afternoon tea after a day at the Chelsea Flower Show. Greeted on arrival and lady remembered the booking and my name. Offered table either inside or out. Served tea promptly and food followed shortly afterwards. Everything was lovely and very tasty. I had read some poor reviews on service but can’t find fault.

    I took my niece for afternoon tea. Overall the experience was good but our waiter was very inattentive and didn’t make our visit as good as it could have been. For the price charged for the afternoon tea I would’ve expected the whole experience to be of a much higher standard and more of a special moment.

    We spent a lovely afternoon there with quality high tea and perfect champagne - awesome outside seating
