  1. Hello! I love your website, and find myself reading your reviews too often, and wishing I had time/ money to visit more of them! I was wondering if you have tried the Gallery Mess at the Saatchi Gallery? I went there not long ago after visiting the Gallery, I loved the Chicken main, but felt the restaurant itself was a little expensive for a ‘mess hall’. Would love to know your opinion on the restaurant! (and of course I felt it was too expensive, I’m a student…)

  2. Thanks. I do like the look of Gallery Mess at the Saatchi Gallery (nice location on a Sunny day), but I have to admit it didn’t draw me in when I was last visiting the Gallery. The prices do seem to be a bit steep for what it is.
