Fodor's Review

Although F&M is popularly known as the Queen's grocer and the impeccably mannered staff still wear traditional tailcoats, its celebrated food hall stocks gifts for all budgets, such as irresistibly packaged luxury foods stamped with the gold "By Appointment" crest for less than £5. Try the teas, preserves (including the unusual rose-petal jelly), condiments, or Gentleman's Relish (anchovy paste). The store's famous hampers are always a welcome gift. The gleaming food hall spans two floors and incorporates a sleek wine bar, with the rest of the store devoted to upscale housewares, men and women's accessories and toiletries, a dedicated candle room, a jewelry department featuring exclusive designs by breakthrough talent, and clothing and toys for children. If you start to flag, break for afternoon tea at the new juice bar or one of the four other restaurants (one's an indulgent ice-cream parlor)—or a treatment in the Beauty Rooms. There's another branch at St. Pancras International.
