Is a church, or a cathedral also a museum? You could look at many of them as historic buildings, and I often delight in their history and decoration, but they are also (usually) living places of worship.
Popping into the British Museum to have a look at a new exhibition and feeling peckish, I considered which of two options could be tried out. The main restaurant, or the canteen style offerings that fill the back end of the Great Court.

It's not often that you have to walk past a dozen other people's dining rooms in order to have your own lunch, unless you work in a hotel, but that is how the Geffrye museum is laid out.
One of South London's major cultural hubs is the legacy of the English obsession with a cup of tea although today it is probably more famous for a very badly stuffed walrus.

I wasn't going to list venues you have to pay to go in to in order to eat, but I've been in the Palace for other reasons on several occasions, and usually stop off at the garden cafe before I leave.
I was in the area watching a steam train trundle through the London Underground and taking a wander down to Oxford Street for some shopping remembered the Wallace Collection has a rather grand looking restaurant.
I was outside London recently with a good friend to visit one of the remotest museums in the country, and which unexpectedly and fortuitously had refreshments available.
The venue has two cafes, one small tea&cake venue at the end of the main tour around the building, and another slightly grander affair right next to the main entrance.
