Iconic artists once recorded here now you can dine here
The Olympic Studios in Barnes was once a renowned recording facility that, back in the day, hosted the likes of The Rolling Stones and The Beatles. The historic studios reopened in October 2013 - after four years of closure - as a luxury cinema and a cafe & dining room.

The cafe & dining room caters for all occasions; whether you're popping in for a coffee, a spot of lunch, afternoon tea, or a slap up meal. On entering the roomy establishment, there's an attractive bar area with trendy statement lighting; this leads through to a laid back cafe area, where the decor is simplistic in painted pale grey and tiled floors; and then through to a wooden-floored, cushioned-seated dining area, for a more formal experience.

The atmosphere throughout is relaxed and friendly, and it's good value too. The menu has a wide selection of home-made and freshly sourced dishes, with sharing plates, a selection of salads and classic British meals such as 'Old Spot Pork Belly' priced at 12. There are a selection of tempting cakes and tarts on display which are freshly made throughout the day by the restaurant's dedicated pastry chef.
