If you are visiting London this summer and are on the lookout for great places to eat after a day of sightseeing, then it doesn't get much better than the Orangery in London.
Of course, there are many exciting places to wine and dine in the capital but this is one of the most well-known for its sheer elegance and sophistication.
So if you want to eat in style, and beat the crowds, then this should definitely be a starting point.
This beautiful cafe is located right next to o Kensington Palace in Kensington Gardens and has been around since the early 1700s.
It was originally built for Queen Mary's younger sister Anne, who eventually went on to become queen of England.
Here visitors can enjoy afternoon tea, as well as delicious homemade food and breakfasts.
This priceless cafe is an unforgettable building with Corinthian columns and Grindling Gibbon's woodcarvings.
It is one of the perfect places to eat on a warm summer's day, and its bright interiors allow plenty of light into the building.
Traditional English food is on offer and here guests can indulge in scones, smoked haddock fish cakes, pastries and salads.
Meal prices are fairly reasonable and are a lot less than you'd pay at a top British hotel or restaurant.
Alternatively, if you really want to eat in style, then why not hop aboard the Bateaux restaurant river cruise where you can enjoy lunch while gliding across the river?
The Bateaux London restaurant cruise combines fine dining with some of the best onboard entertainment you'll find in the city.
Whether you are just after a light afternoon tea, lunch or dinner, the cruise caters to all tastes and requirements .
It is probably one of the most entertaining ways in which visitors can beat the crowds this summer and enjoy some great food and entertainment.
The cruises operate all year round and include three-course meals as well as some interesting commentary.
Not only are guests able to enjoy their food without queuing for tables, or making their way through the hustle and bustle of the city, but it is also a nice way to experience the sights and sounds of the city in all its splendour.
And to top it all off, why not take a trip to William Curley's chocolate shop once you're finished?
Located in Ebury street in London, it was named one of the best British chocolatiers for four years running and is renowned for creating some of the most delicious desserts, handmade chocolates and pastries in the country.
