What’s Been Going On
LOCATED IN THE MAGNIFICENT NATIONAL GALLERY, THE NATIONAL CAFÉ IS ONE OF THE MOST CHARMING & ELEGANT RESTAURANTS IN LONDON, OFFERING ALL DAY DINING FROM HEALTHY BRUNCHES TO OPULENT EVENING MEALS.
Join us for dinner any night of the week (until 8:30pm Mon – Thurs, and 10pm on Fridays) and delve into our menu of British and modern European dishes. Our head chef is truly passionate about quality British ingredients and sources all our meat, fish, dairy and veg directly from artisan producers. Our location makes us a great choice for quick pre-theatre meals, but we’re best enjoyed when you have time to soak up our lovely surroundings and wine list.
The Grab and Go opens from 8am every weekday morning (9am at the weekends) and offers a breakfast menu complete with exclusively baked fresh pastries and breads, homemade preserves and beautifully balanced smoothie bowls.
The National Cafe also makes a great brunch destination away from the bustle and clamor of London’s shopping and sightseeing, and our glorious afternoon teas are hard to beat – the perfect slice of vintage West End indulgence. Plus, for a more informal offer, our Grab and Go is a self-service café (open from 8am – 6pm) offering a superior coffee, tea and a superb selection of freshly made sandwiches, salads and indulgent cakes – perfect for those on the go!
Please contact the restaurant for our group bookings menu (minimum 8 guests, subject to pre-order)
