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.

    Booking service was fine. A table for four in the inside room. Service was very friendly, but very slow. My two male guests had to get up to find a waiter at two different times. The restaurant was not unduly crowded, but at times we felt forgotten. A pity, as they had not been to the restaurant before.

    the 4 main courses came separately and 1 was wrong... The first 2 together, then literally no staff in the restaurant for 5 mins. Then waiter back with the 3rd which was a salad starter not main, so sent back. A larger one came, no apology until we complained about not being served together - answer "oh yes sorry, the 4th is coming" - which it did... Previously service has been fine, hopefully, this was a one-off.

    The food was lovely, but felt it was over-priced for the amount of food supplied.

    Being a managing director or a restaurant myself, could see that your dish mark up was disproportionate to say the least. Therefore Was very disappointed, and sadly would not recommend it to my family and friends.

    We had afternoon tea for 4 for my partner’s 50th birthday and it really was lovely! Service was very attentive and friendly but never intrusive and the food was delicious. Beautiful surroundings and a lovely treat for us all.

    We have eaten out extensively in London for Afternoon Tea and would not hurry back to this venue. The sandwiches were not great, fillings were mediocre, apart from the turkey one and the bread was stale. From the cake selection the mini mince pies were the best, trifle too boozey, however the scones were fine.
    Better value places available in London.

    Somewhat disappointing. Place not vegan friendly, in spite of note informing about dietary restrictions.

    This restaurant thas really gone down and the food is so disappointing. They need Nigella back to wake it up. Such a great venue and good service. But the food is awful now. I always go there with my family from USA when they visit but after 3 disappointing experiences, we won’t go again
