We had the morning breakfast option. The food was hot and clean (i.e. not greasy) and very tasty. The tea room is surrounded by a gallery giving diners an enticing glimpse of exhibits yet to peruse.

This cafe is in a lovely room showing the wonderful Edwardian style of architecture to perfection. There was a good range of food and staff were pleasant. Well worth visiting if you are in the museum.

Such a beautiful room and a really nice look, but the Tea Rooms often struggles to be friendly and efficient. Managed better this weekend, but not busy and table clearing still a bit behind the times.
