Food is average but handy to eat here when visiting although it gets rammed on a Saturday. Surroundings are stunning. Wish they did gluten-free rolls/sandwiches.

Obviously if you're lucky and it's not too busy this is a beautiful setting as well, but we went on a very busy Saturday and we had the 'cheap seats' in one of the side rooms. But the food was great. Despite rather Byzantine serving system we managed to get a lovely soup (carrot and cumin) with bread and a... More

Husband had braised beef and rice which he enjoyed. I had only room for a snack so went for the soup of the day. Unfortunately there were no gluten-free bread options available so that let it down. The server was very helpful and offered poppadom. Pleasant little half bottle of Italian red wine which we shared with two glasses, very... More

We had lunch. lots of choice, hot cold, sarnis. we had hot - but by the time we had waited to buy drinks it was getting cold. cafeteria style. Parts of restaurant modern - get in the old Wm Morris part is you can, though that part is tiled, so cool. Food tasty, not very generous portions for the price.

The food is OK, but eating it in the beautiful period décor rooms is the fun part. Do take a teapot and scone to enjoy them :)

lots of choice, and I'm neither a vegetarian or in a wheelchair, or with a buggy but its all good. There are several points to chose types of food from have a look through before committing yourself.

V&A is always nice to visit, not only the museum but also the garden, the restaurant and the good food and life music. In fact, in the old days, people went to the restaurant,even neglecting the museum . You should enjoy both, even more given the good price/quality quote
