Friends pop up café 

As we look forward to the opening of the Keeper’s House we want to ensure minimal disruption for our Friends. While the building works are underway, the Sir Hugh Casson and Belle Shenkman rooms are closed for refurbishment. 

Until 1 September there is a pop up café located on the first floor in the Reynolds Room. For the first time ever Friends can enjoy a coffee and a bite to eat surrounded by beautiful works from the RA Collection. Peyton & Byrne will continue to offer firm favourites, from a hearty selection of cakes and pastries to light lunches.

Friends pop up café
Open daily 10am – 6pm (until 10pm on Fridays)

Please note this is a cash only bar, we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

The Reynolds Room is a fine example of Palladian interior. Originally the ballroom of Burlington House, the great musician George Frideric Handel, who lived in Burlington House for three years, composed and performed works in this very room.
