Eat at the National Dining Rooms

As regular readers may have noticed, your author has a bit of a thing for museum cafes and restaurants, and he has been to the National Dining Rooms, at the National Gallery, on a couple of very pleasant lunchtimes. Its probably more to do with a love of museums and galleries than a never-ending search for the best restaurant in London, but it is nice nonetheless.

A branch of Peyton and Byrne, it is overseen by prize-winning executive chef, Simon Duff, who originally trained under Marco Pierre White, and has worked at a number of London venues including the Franklin hotel and the Swissôtel the Howard.

It's a little pricey, especially if you're drinking, but on the right menu £23 will buy you two courses, and when you consider that you get some of the best paintings in the world thrown in for free, it doesn't seem so bad.

The National Dining Rooms is situated in the Sainsbury Wing of The National Gallery, on Trafalgar Square, and is open from 10am - 5pm every day, and until 8:30pm on Fridays. For more, and a full menu, see http://www.thenationaldiningrooms.co.uk/
