“One of the most oddly-located restaurants you can imagine”, this “authentically French” outfit (sibling to Casse-Croûte on nearby Bermondsey Street) “looks like an ex-tennis clubhouse opposite a kids’ playground”. It’s a “charming and delightful place”, though, and the food is of “high quality” – sometimes “simply superb”.

“Just love the sheer over-Frenchness of Pique-Nique!”“quirky” sister restaurant of Bermondsey’s Casse-Croûte nearby. “They make the best out of their odd converted park pavilion building” – a “random Alpine chalet-looking thing next to a kids’ playground and overlooking tennis courts” – and the terrace by Tanner Street Park can be “lovely on a summer’s evening”. “Very tasty and generous” sharing plates are par for the course, including “Chateaubriand that’s an absolutely wonderful monster – plenty for three people” and “offal tart just stuffed with rich flavour”.

“Sister restaurant of nearby Casse Croute” that occupies a funny, mock-Tudor building (built as a shelter) on the borders of Tanner Street Park, complete with bar and open kitchen. The traditional Gallic cuisine – though good – lacks the all-round excellence of its sibling: service, though “friendly”, is “a bit more sloppy”; and the environment is “cosy but a little less so”.

For 32 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).

Food strangely inconsistent. Three serving...

"Food strangely inconsistent. Three servings of the same dish (saddle of lamb) produced one that was very good; one that was reasonable; and one that had to be returned to the kitchen."
