Who is The Wolseley?
With an impeccable culture of hospitality, steeped in heritage, elegance, and with a spectacular interior, The Wolseley has occupied the iconic building of 160 Piccadilly since 2003. Combining British heritage with European grandeur, this beguiling café-restaurant, arguably one of London’s most respected, is today renowned for its seamless service and classic food.
A Short History
Shortly after The Ritz opened its glitzy and glamorous doors in 1906, Wolseley Motors Ltd, designed by architect William Curtis Green, occupied the site of 160 Piccadilly. His vision of domed ceilings and monochrome geometric marble flooring, remained when it became Barclays Bank in 1927, whose counters and managers offices have transformed to form today’s bar and tea salon at The Wolseley. Acquired by restaurateurs Chris Corbin and Jeremy King, the duo are ‘architects of ambience’ having created some of London’s most iconic restaurants, and continue to make a significant contribution to the hospitality industry.
What do they offer?
Hailed as one of the busiest London restaurants, The Wolseley offers an abundance of choice for its customers; from breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner to an all day and late night menu, and has received numerous accolades, including Moët and Tatler’s Restaurant of the Decade, and the The Observer’s Best Breakfasts. Seated amongst walls of polished Portland Stone, red, black and gold lacquered panels and columns, with elaborate bronze pendants and concealed lamps, The Wolseley provides quite the unforgettable dining experience.
