Quintessentially British Cuisine May 23, 2011
This won't break the bank if you're just after some afternoon tea or a bite to eat rather than a full-on three course meal followed by cheese board and glass of port.

They have a few places dotted across west London but I've only ever been to the one on Piccadilly, and given its location (a few doors down from The Ritz and Fortnum and Mason) I wouldn't go in there looking like a scruff bag, wearing an I-heart-London T-shirt and carrying a bunch of Hamley's bags. This is a quintessentially British, afternoon tea and scones type of place so it's all about embracing its fanciness and not dressing like a tramp. Saying that though, you wouldn't be turned away for wearing trainers, just make sure you look like a respectable human being.

Anyway, focusing on the food, the Richoux menu covers every angle, from breakfast and brunch to main meals and afternoon tea. I can't say that I've personally sampled everything off the menu, but the things I have had are absolutely worth every single penny. Their main meals leave you satisfyingly full but it's their brunches, cakes and desserts that are to die for! I suggest you either kick start the day with some breakfast / brunch or drop by for a mid-afternoon indulgence.

If you’re from out-of-town and looking to experience the stereotypical British thing, then it’s all about heading here to spend the afternoon sipping tea and stuffing scones in your face. Just like a proper Englishman.
