The Portrait Restaurant

Elevate Your Dining with a View!


Situated atop the world-renowned National Portrait Gallery, The Portrait Restaurant by Richard Corrigan offers panoramic views of Trafalgar Square and the Houses of Parliament. The menu celebrates the classic dishes from Corrigan’s career while introducing new signature favourites, all crafted from the finest seasonal British and Irish produce.

The restaurant’s light and airy ambiance is enhanced by a heritage green colour palette that harmonises with the gallery’s hues. Custom hand-sewn fabric panels by De Gournay, a famous British brand known for hand-painted wallpapers, depict the iconic building’s exterior. The walls are also adorned with portraits from a new selection of writers, musicians, and poets, all with connections to Ireland.

The Portrait Restaurant is a chic and stylish venue to savour dishes made from top-quality seasonal ingredients sourced from the country’s most esteemed suppliers. Highlights include Gazpacho, Courgette Cream, Native Lobster, and fillet of beef with spinach and peppercorn sauce. Classic sides like chips and mash are available, and a set menu offers two courses of some of central London’s best food for £34. The restaurant is open for lunch on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, and for all-day dining from Wednesday to Saturday. Reservations are recommended during peak times.

The Portrait Restaurant is a proud collaboration between Richard Corrigan and Searcys, an award-winning restauranteur, who have been part of London’s hospitality scene for over 175 years, who focus on serving fresh, seasonal dishes that focus on sustainability while adding a touch of indulgence and finesse to each of their venues.
