Had a most wonderful time at Wilton's. The food was sublime and the service impeccable. Also, the interior is classically and timelessly decorated and it is a bit like traveling back in time. I very much look forward to my next visit.

You will be fine dressed as you describe. Wiltons isn't 'snobby', just likes everything to be elegant. You will have a memorable experience.

Description
Wiltons, established in 1742, has consistently enjoyed a reputation as the epitome of fine British dining in London. George William Wilton provided the finest oysters to the traders of London"s Haymarket. Today Wiltons continues that tradition and continues to serve the finest oysters, seafood and game. Wiltons combines a modern philosophy on service with all that is traditionally British to create the perfect dining experience. If you are making a reservation for groups of 6 or more, please contact Wiltons directly. Should you have any special requests i.e birthday cakes or champagne, please advise Wiltons immediately upon making your reservation. We politely ask that gentlemen wear long sleeved shirts and long trousers, no sportswear or open toed sandals.
