My search-fu isn't doing so well, so I apologize if this has already been noted.

V&A is closed for refurbishment June 30th through July 21st. I tried to make online reservations for July 2nd and nothing was available that week. I called the reservation number and the lady informed me the kitchen was being renovated during that time and thus they're closed. I moved my reservation back to the 29th, so I'm sure that will be an interesting "last" night. Too bad the wine cellar isn't part of the refurbishment, or I'd be willing to help drink it up so there'd be less to move...

Quick question--how does V&A work with the dining plan? I just snagged reservations online (quite unexpectedly!! but WOOHOO!), but I'm curious how much to budget for extras.

I don't believe they take it, actually.

You can use the Tables in Wonderland card at V&A just not at the Chef's Table or the Queen Victoria Room.

I once asked them about it and was told that if they took it (which they do not do) the meal would take five entitlements and would not include any of the upcharge items.

Can you share the wine pairings?

Having dinner at V&A's on our anniversary. Can we split the wine pairings (1/2 a glass each)?

They will not split the pairings. But there is nothing to prevent you from sharing. Just be aware that the wine for each course will be based on what the person who has the pairings will be served.

That is incorrect. They WILL split the pairings - but you each get three full glasses, not a half-glass each.

Wouldn't that be costing them twice as much? :/

When you "split" the pairings, each guest gets to choose three of the six glasses. They stopped doing half-pours because the staff were over pouring.
