Owner's description

Lamberts is a modern British seasonal restaurant, offering excellent food and wine in relaxed and friendly surroundings. We love food and believe a restaurant should reflect all that is good about eating and drinking.

We are passionate about ethical produce and maintaining the countryside: We use local suppliers, many of them small family firms, and endeavour to use only the finest, often organic, seasonal ingredients.

Our seasonal menu changes regularly. Old favourites sit side by side with modern interpretations of classic dishes – all complimented by a balanced wine list featuring some exciting bottles at sensible prices.

We very much look forward to seeing you soon!

Joe Lambert

"Quality still reigns in this Balham favourite. Concentration on sourcing and unfussy presentation make it the best bistro in town. Short of la grande cuisine you can't get better food. Cured sea trout, pigeon, pork belly, muscovado tart are all part of an extensive menu and were faultless."
