Eating and drinking
Stop off for a fresh coffee and light refreshment at the Courtyard Café and Poster Bar by José or experience the taste of Spain at José Pizarro’s restaurant in Burlington Gardens.
The RA Café is a decadent space, with its walls adorned by murals created by Royal Academicians through the ages. The renovated café offers a space to rest and enjoy a quick bite, a mid-exhibition break, afternoon tea or a long leisurely lunch.
Located at the back of Burlington House you will find our impressive 11-foot architecture wall adorned with works by architect Academicians.
This is a space for visitors to relax and order refreshments and light bites from our Sir Hugh Casson Room hatch, providing a quiet space for remote working or to simply to enjoy a coffee and a slice of cake with friends.
