Portrait Café

Enjoy a selection of great tasting drinks and delicious, freshly prepared food

A stylish, sky-lit getaway from the city bustle, the Portrait Café serves quality sandwiches, salads, stews and soup as well as an enticing selection of hand-crafted cakes and pastries. Our barista-made coffee comes from Union Roasters, one of London’s premier artisan suppliers.

Late Evenings

Why not join us Thursday, Friday or Saturday evenings from 5-8pm, when we offer sharing boards of the finest British charcuterie and cheeses served with a range of accompaniments including our own bread.

Portrait Café Summer

Join us this summer for light bites and a refreshing range of drinks. We have new ice cream tubs – from classic Cornish clotted cream vanilla and chocolate through to boozy Mojito and G&T flavours. Sip on a glass of pink lemonade, or Pimm’s cocktail while tucking into our deliciously crispy artichoke tarts, or a satisfying tuna niçoise salad.

Families

Families are made welcome with our kids' lunchboxes. Available during school holidays, these include a choice of sandwiches, vegetable sticks with hummus, a piece of fruit, juice and Mini Cheddars for just £4.95.

Portrait Café Menu

Portrait Restaurant

Breathtaking by day and dramatic by night, the Portrait Restaurant’s celebrated view stretches from Nelson’s Column in Trafalgar Square down Whitehall to the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and the London Eye. It’s a sensational accompaniment to any meal – breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea or dinner.
