Lovely service and excellent value for afternoon tea, especially with £10 donation from Chancellor. Temperatures taken on entry but apart from that felt totally normal. Quite busy so had a buzz while tables far enough apart for social distancing but not made to feel at all rushed and they were flexible on booked time when we arrived early. On reflection service 5 star but not sure how to go back and change from 4!

I’ve been craving kedgeree for the last couple of weeks and The Wolseley’s is the best in town, in my opinion. This wasn’t my first kedgeree here and it was perfection today, as it always is. Friendly but discreet service is another reason why I love coming here for a meal or just a quick coffee. I’ll be back soon no doubt!

It was lovely to be back, but such a shame for it to be so quiet, usually an incredible atmosphere in there

Saved the day, I had been trying to find a venue to take my wife for our wedding anniversary, at the last minute we found this gem of a place. The location and certainly the interior were excellent, as were the staff, very pleasant and happy to speak to us both. The food was first class - We will be back.

First time back since to covid crisis. Social distancing v well managed, other than when some customers arriving as others are leaving. High-tech temperature taking contraption at reception, which adds to feeling of safety. My partner loved the quails egg starter. And it was good to have a good old-fashioned salt beef sandwich

It was a wonderful experience to return to the Wolseley. Apart from a temperature scanner on entering, the ambience was just like pre-lockdown.

First meal out after lockdown and I couldn’t have chosen better. Always tasty, and this time I had particularly comforting things. Steak tartare, John Dory and crumble and custard. Perfect.
