Westminster to become a pop-up restaurant

The House of Commons' Members' Dining Room - usually reserved for people elected as MPs - is to welcome the public on February 13-15, for both lunch and dinner services.

Diners will be able to sample the "top-end British cuisine" usually only available to high profile politicians in February, if they can snap up a reservation fast enough. You will also be able to enjoy "a preprandial drink" in the Pugin Room bar.

A spokesman said: "As part of a programme to increase public engagement with Parliament the House of Commons are pleased to offer the opportunity to dine in the magnificent surroundings of one of its grandest dining rooms, the Members' Dining Rooms for lunch and dinner, where seasonal ingredients from across the United Kingdom are paired with sublime presentation and elegance."

Lunch prepared by the award-winning in-house team of chefs will set you back £45 per person, while an evening meal is £65 each, with places strictly limited.

For seats and reservations, you need to go to the Parliament website.
