London Top Restaurants – The Wolseley


160 Piccadilly, London W1J 9EB

The Wolseley is self styled as a café-restaurant in the Grand European tradition located in St James’ in Piccadilly.

However the customers who sit at their tables within  the Wolseley and admire the ambition  to combine “London heritage and Viennese grandeur”  may be surprised to find  out they are sitting in an old Wolseley  car showroom built in the 1920s. Its lavish interior unfortunately did not attract vast numbers of customers and the Company went bust in 1926. In 1927 Barclay’s bought the site and turned it into a bank.
Chris Corbin and Jeremy King secured the site in July 2003 and the building was lavishly restored and renovated before  The Wolseley Café – Restaurant finally opened in November 2003.
As a Café- Restaurant it is as celebrated for its breakfasts as for its main menu , the Eggs Benedict is a signature dish.

The lunch and dinners menu is largely traditional  with dishes such as Soufflé Suisse, Seared Duck Livers and Rosemary Roasted Chicken

Fish menus include Haddock Monte Carlo ,Loch Duart Salmon and Grilled Halibut with Béarnaise.

The Wolseley is very popular and attracts a wide range of customers, for Dinner or Lunch booking is recommended but at other times tables should be available.
