Signature dishes include: Escalope of red wine poached duck foie gras, pear & riesling jelly; Pied de cochon farci, pommes mousseline Madeira and truffle; Kentish fillet of lamb, beetroot puree, gratin dauphinois, olive lamb jus; Pannacotta, orange and Champagne terrine, fennel essence.The beautiful dining room at Orrery is the perfect setting for getting together with friends and family or for a formal corporate affair. Also our stunning roof terrace is a fabulous spot for pre lunch or dinner drinks.

Agree with previous answer - 5 minutes if fit, a little longer if you amble, but no more than 8... The restaurant is at the north end of Marylebone High St - just before it meets Marylebone Rd
