The Wolseley is a very popular restaurant attracting smart dressed London socialites. From Smoked Salmon to Wiener Holstein it serves excellent non-fussy traditional British, Austrian and French meals. The Chopped Liver starter is delicious and the Avocado first course very good too, but the Bread Stick and Butter was not worth the £2 cover charge. Our main choice of Duck Confit was sold out and the waiter seemed pleased to inform us that we had ordered the last chicken dish. Our Slow Cooked Lamb with Beans was substantial although it should have been a bit hotter, and it matched well with a glass of Côte de Rhone. The Roasted Tarragon Chicken was even larger and came with Dauphinois potatoes and matched well with a glass of Cahors. Overall we found the meal quite expensive. Many of the dishes are retro classics from the 1970’s such as Black Forest Gateau, Wiener Schnitzel and Salt Beef.

For people-watching the centre tables or those facing inwards are best. The bar is small and it’s a place where every nook and cranny is filled with diners. Advance booking is advised.
