Cafe and restaurant

The Gallery features two beautiful dining spaces: the cafe, and the stunning, a-la-carte, garden-to-plate restaurant Chiswick at the Gallery.

The Chiswick at the Gallery restaurant is the perfect venue to enjoy a memorable meal and a glass of wine before or after you visit the Gallery’s exhibitions. The Cafe at the Gallery offers rotating menu items, best enjoyed in a casual dining experience in a relaxed environment on Lower Level 1.

Cafe at the Gallery

This stunning light-filled space on lower level 1 offers a casual dining experience in a relaxed environment. It’s a perfect stop before or after you enjoy an exhibition.

The cafe serves great coffee and sweets, freshly prepared light snacks, sandwiches, salads and a beautiful selection of hot food.

Currently open daily 10am – 2pm

From 26 September 2020, open daily 10am – 3pm

Chiswick at the Gallery

The approach at Chiswick is continually evolving, with the emphasis on where the food comes from and how it is grown. The menu is designed for sharing and reflects the simplicity of showcasing the freshest produce and changing seasons. The heart of the Chiswick restaurant (on the ground level of the Gallery) is the kitchen garden (on the terrace outside lower level one), where much of the produce for the menu is grown.

Chiswick at the Gallery is a perfect spot for a quick bite or a drink at the bar, a special celebration with friends or lunch before or after enjoying the Gallery exhibitions.

Dining packages available.

From 25 September 2020, open Thursday–Sunday 12–3pm
