Restaurant description

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.

    The best feature for me and friends is the civilised surroundings without muzak! My favourite dish yesterday was the pudding Apple Pie; according to the menu it was supposed to come with ice cream (don't like!) however was served with custard (which I love) instead. Other courses were goo, too. As to service, they could have been more attentive to replenish our glasses of water (had to keep asking).

    My guest chose the cauliflower steak as he doesn't eat meat. He found it disappointing and lukewarm However the waitress was very attentive and gave us complimentary dessert and coffee. She did not suggest he order a side vegetable dish. My chicken dish was very good although the spinach was tough. I think the heavy "Japanese" style teapots are a health and safety risk even though the waitress may pour the first cup (of peppermint tea) My teaport lid did not fit and slid off!

    Food was good Service very poor. Had to ask to order. Had to ask for soup spoons. Had to ask for salt and pepper. We’re not asked if we would like any wine,etc with our meal. Staff, apart from reception were disinterested and grumpy. Other diners felt the same. Such a shame.

    Rather disappointing not as good as previous visits. Only main choice for lunch was fish (hake which we had eaten at home the previous day) or vegetarian.

    I have always enjoyed this restaurant but I feel the quality of the cooking has gone up a couple of notches. It’s a lovely room, the staff are always great but my recent lunch was superb.

    My food was terrible, I sent it back and the took the main off the bill. Probably the worse meal I have ever had.
