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.
The Gallery will be closed to the public on Monday 19 February due to a private event. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Portrait Café opening hours
Saturday to Wednesday: 10:00-17:00
Thursday and Friday: 10:00-20:00
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 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.
