Lunch and Edward Burne-Jones

​Take in the works of Pre-Raphaelite artist Edward Burne-Jones, alongside lunch in the iconic Rex Whistler Restaurant

Restaurant Head Chef Alfio Laudani has been inspired by the Victorian era, when the Pre-Raphaelites were prominent. This was a key time in the changing tastes of British food during the reign of Queen Victoria.

This period in British food saw a move to meals served by courses, the increased use of spices influenced by Britain’s colonisation of India and a more elaborate style of cooking. Puddings became grander with entertaining jellies often a centrepiece.

Guests can enjoy a 3 course lunch alongside the exhibition and will also be able to enjoy wines to accompany lunch from the restaurants multi award-winning cellar.
