This Peyton and Byrne restaurant enjoys plenty of light during the day: its courtyard setting is a glass covered atrium within the walls of the Wallace Collection - an art galley in Manchester Square. Large potted trees add to the outdside-brought-inside. 

The modern European menu features dishes such as razor clams with seaweed crackers and parsley purée, roasted cod with pickled turnips, sweet chard and a fish bone jus, and chickpea gnocchi with sprouting broccoli, chillies and comté cheese. Desserts include sheep's yoghurt with roasted plums and pistachio crumble. 

Cream teas and afternoon teas are popular choices - you can add champagne to both, too.  Breakfasts, available from 10am until midday, range from fruit platters and scrambled egg with smoked salmon to cakes, tarts and bloody marys.

The worst service and food that I have recently experienced in London. Tiny lunch portions overpriced, overcooked, rude waitress and extremely rude and arrogant Female manager. Oliver Peyton needs to sort the place out. One felt as if one was an inconvenience for dining there. I have. Priced several similar reviews on various web sites but the senior management are not responding.the only good thing about the place is the lovely covered courtyard.

My daughter arranged for myself and seven other folk including herself and immediate family to have an early evening meal on Saturday 13th July. My daughter discussed the menu a few weeks before hand and they came up with several options and a special printed menu. The dishes were superb; service excellent (being both attentive and discreet), I do not remember having enjoyed a meal more; a birthday meal with close family and friends; all of whom could not praise the service and food more highly.

Very disappointing experience today at the Wallace cafe. I expected more from Peyton. Service was slow, impersonal and at one point down-right rude. Unfortunately it spoilt my visit to the Wallace Collection.
