There are two places to eat at the Tate Britain - the Café and the Restaurant. They are all managed by Tate, for Tate, so purchases directly support the gallery.
The Tate's self-service Café offers a range of freshly baked pastries, good quality sandwiches, light meals, soup, cakes and drinks. The Café is open 10:00 - 17:30 daily.
The Tate Britain Restaurant was decorated by Rex Whistler, whose specially-commissioned mural The Expedition in Pursuit of Rare Meats makes an atmospheric and memorable setting for a meal. Head Chef Richard Oxley has worked at prestigious restaurants throughout the UK. His predominantly British Menus are complemented by the celebrated, and well-prices, wine list.
The Restaurant is open for breakfast Saturday and Sunday 10 - 11:30. Lunch is served Monday to Sunday 11:30 - 15:00 and afternoon tea is served from 15:30 - 17:00 Monday to Sunday.

The Tate Britain's cafe for members is a really beautiful spot on the top floor of the museum. I had a glass of wine there with a friend and enjoyed the ambiance. Surrounded by beautiful marble, you feel like you're in another world and not an art museum. The wine selection was very strong but the servings were meager, which would be my one critique. However, as a Tate member, I will be...more
So the current Tate Britain Cafe is under refurbishment, and so they have moved it outside for the time being. And the result is... eh.
It's hard to miss, walk right of the main stance doors and come across a giant tent. Inside, you have a small counter for a bar, a small counter for coffee and a small counter for some treats. There are seats inside the tent (which kind of makes you feel like...more
I don't know if the basement cafe referred to by the last reviewer is still there, but there is now a new cafe inside the entrance hall to the Tate Britain.
It isn't anything particularly special but it is nice enough and I really wanted to mention it for the prices. Often these art galleries and heritage venues price their refreshments like they think we're made of money. For a nice change,...more
After a trek along the Embankment to Millbank a good reward is a bite to eat at Tate Britain's cafe. Either before perusing the art or to relax after there is a wide range of good value food and excellent coffee on offer. It's cheaper than Tate Modern too! It's not too crowded, even on a Saturday like today. Although a member I prefer the public cafe to the members' room as it is more...more
After a long and tiring browse at the fascinating and beautiful Pre-Raphaelite collection in the Tate Britain (it's a hard life), you may find yourself a bit peckish. Or, if you are like me and got out of bed too late for breakfast, absolutely starving. Well don't worry, downstairs is a cafe which sells some really, really, good grub. It isn't the prettiest or cosiest of cafe's but it is...more
