Beautifully presented & scones delicious but let down by sandwiches which weren't as fresh as they could've been - smoked salmon bagel in particular, also overly cold, tasted like airline food. Not enough clotted cream for 4 - one small dish so had to ask for 2nd & when we asked for more tea no more milk was brought & we'd only had one small jug between 4 originally but at this point gave up trying to grab waitress attention yet again.

The service was good, and did its best, but the food was penny pinching. The same sauce came with two of my courses. I was told fish was not available, then the table next to me, who ordered later, was brought fish. My first course had cold, defrosted prawns on a warm sauce. It seemed a bit cheap for the British Museum. The Groupon was not cheap or that discounted.

Good selection of cakes and sandwiches. Tea selection quite poor - just English breakfast or herbal.

It was a cold day outside but the restaurant was freezing cold. Probably because such a large space. The bagels and tart were nice but the egg sandwich tasteless. The scones were tasty but the sponge cakes were all dry and dense.
