A boon when you’ve just escaped the throngs around Trafalgar Square with hungry kids, this smart all-day operation in a bright, calm room has truly gawp-worthy views from the 3rd floor of the National Portrait Gallery. British-Med fare is the deal, done safe and consistently well.

What to eat?  Red wine and radicchio risotto with salsify and pine nuts, and we’d also recommend the pork chop with savoy cabbage and mustard sauce. Breakfast from 10am offers boiled eggs and Marmite soldiers.
