The Wolseley - London's best kept secret, hiding in plain sight!

The Wolseley opened its doors on Piccadilly in 2003 and has since earned its reputation as one of London’s most respected restaurants, becoming a recognised institution the world over. Renowned today for its spectacular interior, classic food and seamless service.

The Wolseley is an all-day café-restaurant in the grand European tradition, serving a wide variety of British and European classics.

The grade II-listed building was designed by English architect William Curtis Green, upon a commission by Wolseley Motors in 1921 to design their prestigious car showroom. The architect, who subsequently built the Dorchester, drew upon many architectural influences when designing the Wolseley House. Brunelleschi’s Santo Spirito in Florence provided the main inspiration and the black and cream geometric marble floors seemingly came from the churches of Pisa and San Marco in Venice. The restoration and renovation was developed by David Collins Studio before The Wolseley opened in 2003.

The Wolseley Collection allows customers to take The Wolseley experience home. It showcases an exceptional collection of gifts from homeware items such as silverware, crystal glassware and candles to indulgent edibles including chocolate truffles, florentines and all butter shortbread. Items can be purchased online, in The Wolseley on Piccadilly and at Café Wolseley at Bicester Village.

The Wolseley is one of the many fabulous restaurants in the Corbin & King empire.
