Time Out says

Please note, The Magazine Restaurant at The Serpentine Sackler Gallery will be closed for refurbishment until March 31 2018. Time Out Food editors, January 2018.

Architecture students regularly congregate outside The Magazine restaurant to prod and poke the space-age extension to the Serpentine’s Sackler wing. Your average suburban curtain-twitcher would have a heart attack if one of the neighbours opted for an urban expansion in the style of award-winning architect Zaha Hadid’s bright white, swooping structure.

Like the Tardis, The Magazine feels bigger on the inside, but there the resemblance ends. More like a wedding marquee than a time travel machine, its light and bright with pretty white posies on each table. Artfully designed asymmetric tables in lime green, grey and white are accompanied by comfy bucket chairs in matching hues. The kitchen is trendily open plan. The food is modern/fusion in approach, and prices for main courses range from £13 to £27.
