We had a lovely afternoon tea in the delightful surroundings of the terrace restaurant. There was plenty to eat, a lovely pot of tea and a glass of prosecco.
The service was friendly and efficient.

    A convenient place to meet friends from the UK and USA. A good lunch in pleasant surroundings served by a pleasant and efficient waitress. A request for sharp knives to cut the food could not be met..

    I reserved a table at the British Library restaurant as a birthday treat for a friend. It was FAR FROM A TREAT! Briefly 1) On arrival, we were "waved" to a table instead of being asked to pick put our sandwiches: 2) The coffee we ordered arrived lukewarm 3) The sandwiches we finally ordered from a waitress did not arrive for 30 minutes until I went to enquire; 4) When they did arrive, the "open" sandwiches were split bagels with a little shredded salmon overwhelmed with rocket 5) I was told that the problem was with one of the two computers being erratic. To me the £20 I spent was in the region of "daylight robbery"

    This is a hidden gem - light bright restaurant, delicious fresh food, the best brownie I have ever tasted and attentive kind staff. We will be back again.

    I thought the location was really great
    Disappointed as I thought I had booked a breakfast/brunch slot - I thought the menu was poor and the food not that great
    I think this would be ok for a coffee but would not recommend it for lunch

    Very disappointing. Booked for a late lunch with friends who'd bothered to come to London especially to meet up. Almost everything on the menu was off (including all pizzas and all sandwiches), so we ended up with very little choice. Food was just about okay. Had a salad, but had to ask for some dressing as it was dry and fairly bland. Pudding (i.e., cake) options equally limited. An alternative was brought for one of our choices without us even being asked. Staff were pleasant, though. With so many other restaurants in the area, I regretted choosing this one. A shame, because it's a lovely airy venue, with great views of surrounding buildings, and a nice place to sit and chat.
