The Wolseley building opened in 1921 as a car showroom, hence the name. It later became a banking hall and then a Chinese restaurant. Chris Corbin and Jeremy King took it over in 2003 and made it into the first of their grand European-style all-day...More

The place is neat, nicely decorated and it appears that everything in the room had been thoroughly organized in the right way. The food is not the best in London but the atmosphere is so great that you are forgiving. A few meters from my...More

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of
London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is
haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is
vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even

Not obligatory but this is a venue where you would look out of place in jeans and trainers. Smart casual I would say with or without a jacket. Hope this helps.
