ALREADY HAVE A TICKET FOR THE MUSEUM?

If you are already in possession of a Pre-Raphaelites exhibition ticket, please note that your entry time for the exhibition and your booked Restaurant time are strict. Please do not book them for the same time otherwise you will not be able to visit one or the other.

If you are already in possession of a General Admission ticket for the Museum you may also book for the Restaurant, for the same time or a different time, and no further action is required. Please ensure that you visit the Restaurant, on the 4th floor, at the time of your Restaurant booking.

 

 

MASKS: Masks do not need to be worn when you are seated and eating in the restaurant, but they are required by law at all other times in the Museum including when arriving and leaving the restaurant and when visiting the restrooms.

LIMITED STAYS: You may stay in the restaurant for 1.5 hours after your booking time, as this allows for a full cleaning of the restaurant between seatings. Please note the restaurant closes at 4.30pm.

ENHANCED CLEANING: We have taken all necessary steps to ensure the safety of all guests to the Rooftop Restaurant, and our staff. Tables have been socially distanced, and enhanced cleaning measures have been put in place to comply with government guidelines.

If you suspect you have symptoms of coronavirus, we ask that you delay your visit, contact us, and follow government guidance.
