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.

If visiting Tate Britain make time to stop for a leisurely set lunch in their restaurant, either a one course, two or three, at very reasonable prices, accompanied with a half bottle of wine. The restaurant is famous for its mural painted by Rex Whistler hence the name, depicting an expedition in search of exotic meats, travelling on horses, carts and bicycles, on route meeting such amazing...more
My better half treated me to a stunning three-course lunch here on my birthday last week, and I was thoroughly spoilt rotten with the food, service and atmosphere.
The wall-to-wall Whistler mural makes this restaurant a pleasure to eat in, absolutely beautiful and definitely keeps you occupied while waiting for service although we never had to wait for service at all despite it being 2pm and...more
A recent lunch was a revelation. Wild duck had more flavour than I've had in duck in many years. Vegetable sides are extra, but their chips are superb. Butternut squash ravioli was nice if you like that sort of thing. For dessert I had Black Forest Gateau - not the sixties wedge, but a sundae of chocolate mousse, cherry compote, and chocolate cake. Brilliant. Great Illy coffee. Now, if only...more
