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.

    Not a regular customer but food and service has always been consistently good. Had the most delicious plate of venison beautifully presented followed by a wicked treacle tart!

    Great location

    The dessert and cappuccini were excellent. The Caesar's salad two of us thought was skimpy. The service was mediocre at best. At least we were not double charged as happened several times in the past.

    Dreadful inedible Caesar salad, virtually nothing else but lettuce swumped in heavy dressing. Total waste of money. Charming staff

  • (**** 12 September 2019 by Kari from london

    Will not return.
    Took my parents for afternoon tea.
    Waiter was so, so rude.
    Refused to swap coffee for tea (as part of the high tea) - said we would be charged extra.
    Refused to take a family photo of us.
    Scones were dry.
    Menu is overpriced.
    Do not go.

    As I had reserved, they gave us a lovely table outside (sun was out!) which was great. We both ordered the cod dish which was really good. Tasty and perfectly cooked. Very good service too.
