Hidden within the Royal Academy of Arts, The Keeper’s House offers modern British fine dining. Open to the public for the first time, this much-hyped London restaurant comes courtesy of the acclaimed Peyton & Byrne group.

The selective Keeper’s House menu champions premium produce and offers twists on classic recipes. Enjoy seared monkfish with razor clams and champagne velouté, or dark chocolate fondant with coconut and Malibu sorbet. The Keeper’s House restaurant in Piccadilly also offers a set lunch and pre-theatre menu.

Sip on cocktails in the sanctuary of the pristine dining room, or head out to the walled garden, which showcases oasis-style design from landscaper Tom Stuart Smith. Exotic mixes include gooseberry and elderflower with apple cider brandy, or blackcurrant vermouth with rye and beetroot.

A fairy tale restaurant in London, The Keeper’s House is 5 minutes’ walk from Piccadilly Circus Tube Station.

    We have eaten at the Keeper's House several times before. The staff are universally polite and helpful and the food is good. My only comment about the menu we had on Monday was that it was very heavy on the leafy green vegetable side (my husband won't touch them) and that nowhere else have I come across a treacle tart with coconut as an ingredient. I would certainly not have ordered it, had I known!

    My companion is a vegetarian and her choices were boring and overpriced. My fish was flavourless. It was supposed to come with parsnips which consisted of two slivers. Chips were 'off' as were another potato option. 2 deserts were 'off', one from the Table d'Hote menu & one from A La Carte. My toffee and banana sundae was banana and chocolate which I would not have chosen. The bread we had as substitute for potatoes came with a sliver of butter & we had to ask for more. Will not be returning.

    Disappointing. 4 of us dined on Monday evening and several items were off the menu including all forms of potato except for a very watery mash. This was clearly bought in ready prepared or why couldn’t they provide chips? If the dishes were bought in rather than prepared on site, the prices were unreasonably high. The waiter was surly and not at all sympathetic or apologetic about the missing items. The ambience however was pleasant so tat we could enjoy our friends’ company. The only reason we left a tip was that it had been added into the bill - not acceptable.

    Dear Sir or Madam,

    I was disappointed that the small gestures such as free bread are now put as extra's. The meals we wanted weren't available and we were there early The service was excellent, the food was okay. My Mother ordered a Toffee and Banana desert which had chocolate in side and as she gets migranes was unable to eat it.

    It seemed nicer and much brighter than the last time I ate there - over a year ago (?) I think.

    I have had lunch and dinner here several times over the last two years and have invariably found the service to be efficient if not exactly friendly and welcoming. On this occasion the service was indifferent and the food disappointing: our starters - minestrone soup and rabbit terrine - were barely edible and the main course - beetroot ravioli - was overheated, as if it had been in a microwave for forty seconds too long. Has there been a change of management? Hitherto Keeper's House has been a convenient, even congenial place for lunch meetings and I hope it will be again one day.

    The place needs a little more lightness and joy-it's very stuffy and feel old. It doesn't help that it's located in a basement. So it needs even more lightness.
    The food is OK-- it's good but not particularly exciting. The bread, warm and crunch was amazing!
    The staff very lovely and professional.

    Good food, fair value. Service patchy and at times inattentive.
