National Dining RoomsThe National Gallery's National Dining Rooms restaurant won Time Out's Best British Restaurant Award in 2007 for good reasons - they do all sorts of great British things like breakfasts, cakes and afternoon tea really well, while the set menu combines traditional British dishes in innovative ways. Found in the Sainsbury Wing of the National Gallery, they share the same opening hours as the gallery so this isn't an evening place but more than worth a visit if you're in the gallery and need a gastronomic pick-me-up before you tackle the next collection. The National Dining Room is absolutely stunning, with floor-to-ceiling windows giving views over Trafalgar Square, and an immense Paula Rego covering one wall. The menu is simple and appealing, a description that also applies to the food (though it is perhaps a shade on the pricy side). British fish, seasonal vegetables and a good wine list are the staples of this atmospheric and enjoyable restaurant.
