The Restaurant at the RA
Flexible all-day dining from restaurateur Oliver Peyton. Featuring a specially designed menu that makes full use of prime British ingredients.
Please note: The Restaurant at the RA will be closed for refurbishment from Monday 25 August. The Keeper's House will be open to the public at all normal opening times from this date.
As well as a traditional à la carte menu, the restaurant offers a selection of small plates and terrines, offering diners the flexibility to enjoy a two or three course meal, order tapas-style or drop by for a quick but delicious bite. Over 20 wines are available by the glass, along with a very British afternoon tea.
The restaurant has been designed by Design Research Studio under the direction of internationally renowned designer Tom Dixon, with whom we have worked closely to design the interior.
The decor features an impressive glass installation housing sculptures from our permanent collection that have not been in the public view, and selected to complement the design. A striking bar made from handmade brick and lava stone from Mount Etna occupies the full length of one wall and also serves as a counter at which guests can have a quick lunch, tea or a glass of wine.
The restaurant was originally designed by Norman Shaw in 1885 and renovated by London-based architects MUMA in 2004. The space features celebrated murals by Fred Appleyard, Harold Speed, Gilbert Spencer and Leonard Rosoman.
