“Worth travelling to Peckham for” (and “an absolute gem to have on one’s doorstep”) – Patrick Williams and Amy Corbin’s “fun, buzzy and cramped-in-a-good way” venture enjoys an ever-increasing reputation. The South African-influenced food is “knockout with all sorts of wonderful flavour combinations, and service is especially warm and friendly – really on the ball, but also relaxed”. There’s a back garden for dining on warmer days. (See also Kudu Grill).

“Just wow: bags and bags of flavour in every dish” – this “consistently interesting” Peckham three-year-old from chef Patrick Williams and front of house Amy Corbin (daughter of Chris) is hitting an ever-more impressive stride with its “modern and intelligent” South African-influenced cooking, service that’s “gracefully informal and knowledgeable” and an interior that’s “charming and relaxed, with subdued lighting”. It’s “generous, too – bread served with whole frying pans full of flavoured butter, for goodness sake!”. “A real treat and worth the (in my case) 350-mile round trip”, enthused one satisfied reporter.

This somewhat South African-influenced newcomer (it’s primarily trendy modern British small plates) created by chef Patrick Williams and front-of-house Amy Corbin (daughter of restaurant royalty, Chris Corbin) inspires a mix of opinions. Fans are in the majority and say “it’s superb to enjoy food of this standard in the heart of Peckham”, but one or two detractors feel culinary results are either “not that great” or “a bit pricey”.

For 31 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 find in Peckham. Delicious food, waiters are very attentive, and nice atmosphere. Plus the price is fair for the quality of the ingredients and dishes. Can totally recommend it and will definitely come back again."
