The Royal Academy has been a prestigious institution since its inception in 1768, and we are thrilled to be providing sustenance to thousands of artists and art lovers who visit each year both at the RA Grand Cafe, and at our new restaurant in the historic Keeper's House building.

Our menu celebrates the best of British produce while offering an innovative flourish to a modern European menu. The menu offers a wide variety of choice including open sandwiches with toppings of smoked trout, samphire, avocado & horseradish with radish on bruschetta and fresh from the oven roast chicken with rosemary, lemon and garlic with potato gratin.

We'll even treat you to a splendid Afternoon Tea if you join us between 3-5.15pm, where you can enjoy homemade patisseries, buttermilk scones, our Peyton and Byrne preserves, clotted cream and tea or coffee — how very civilised.

Some of our menus will keep step with the themes of exhibitions within the Royal Academy we have a dedicated wine list.

We are now taking group bookings for a limited number of evenings in December for Christmas parties and events. For more information email

We hope to see you soon, after you've taken in a few works from the rich tapestry of art and sculptures on show upstairs — a fine Mayfair day out.
