Queen Elizabeth is not a foodie. She eats to live, unlike Prince Philip, who loves to eat and talk food all day. And so, she chooses to eat where it’s easiest: in her home.
But she does, occasionally, dine at restaurants.

Here we have five establishments in London, England, that have welcomed the Queen at their tables.
In the year 2004, three Annabel’s alumni established this French brasserie. It was named for the club in Evelyn Waugh’s Sword of Honour books. Her Majesty discovered Bellamy’s in 2006 and she has, since, returned for the caviar and the smoked-eel mousse.
Claridge’s’ art-deco ballroom is where the monarchs from other nations have returned Queen Elizabeth’s invitations with their own state dinners. And, so, she has become accustomed to the historic destination’s cuisine. It’s a modern, seasonal menu that is available at chef Matt Starling’s Fera.
This diner has welcomed Queen Elizabeth since she was just a princess. She attended an event at The Dorchester on July 9, 1947, it was the eve of the announcement that she and Prince Philip were engaged. This iconic establishment has two exclusive restaurants: Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester, with three Michelin stars, and The Grill.
Around the corner from Buckingham Palace, The Goring’s Dining Room features David Linley. It has decorated interiors with Gainsborough-silk curtains.
The Queen was seen at this fashionable choice in London’s Covent Garden in 2017. The interiors, with their harlequin-patterned stained-glass windows were recently redecorated in collaboration with Martin Brudnizki Design Studio. It was to mark The Ivy’s 100th anniversary.
