This “wonderful” three-year-old is the brainchild of chefs Lucy Pedder and Natasha Cooke, whose “affordable” modern British small plates are “cooked to a very high standard” – so “full marks to these brave young women”. “Handy for Tate Modern” in the Flat Iron complex, they expanded their small space in early 2020 and it now has 44 covers. (Dishes are now also, apparently, 100% nut free).

This “wonderful” two-year-old is the brainchild of chefs Lucy Pedder and Natasha Cooke, whose “affordable” modern British small plates are “cooked to a very high standard” – so “full marks to these brave young women”. “Handy for Tate Modern” in the Flat Iron complex, Lupins is “small”, so remember to book.

“Booking is essential – otherwise, be prepared to wait!” – if you want to sample Lucy Pedder and Natasha Cooke’s “tiny small-plates restaurant”, “in the Flat Iron complex near London Bridge” and “handy for Tate Modern and Borough Market”. It’s set over two floors: “a large café on the ground floor” and a “lovely”, “atticy” upstairs. “The all-women staff and owners have really gotten their act together”“friendly service enhances the whole experience” and the “unusual tapas-style dishes” are “really great sharing food with some sublime flavours”; “writing my review has reminded me to go back immediately!”

Chefs Lucy Pedder and Natasha Cooke met working at Medlar and set up a catering collective together; this is their first permanent restaurant venture, which opened in mid 2017 in Flat Iron Square food hub, a short walk from Borough Market, with a menu full of ‘seasonal British produce with a splash of sunshine’ (on which early press reviews are upbeat).

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

"Wonderful, inventive, regularly changing menu. Very good friendly efficient service. Small but buzzy restaurant. Difficult to fault."
