* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

This “all-day neighbourhood restaurant” opened two years ago in an old Victorian dining room opposite Herne Hill station, and quickly established itself as “a top local option” for many reporters; although, because it’s “small”, it becomes “crowded and noisy” as a result. The “admirably daily-changing menu” has Mediterranean influences and “usually offers interesting dishes” at “good prices” – they would be rated even higher were it not for a few reporters who see them as “decent enough, but nothing special”.

“Just the kind of restaurant you want down your street” – this all-day yearling in a former Victorian dining room opposite Herne Hill station can deliver “wonderfully judged, honest modern British food”. It’s by no means perfect – one or two reporters have been disappointed by the cooking, “tables are close together” and “it gets noisy when it’s crowded” – but the response is mostly upbeat (and it’s kid-friendly too).

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).

"I feel very lucky to have this as a local restaurants. The food is unfailingly good. It is one of those restaurants where the menu hugely understates the deliciousness that will soon follow. The service is lovely - knowledgeable and friendly. It is a small, intimate restaurant (a fact made all the more apparent by covid-related spacing) so don't expect a buzz. Provided you are happy with that, you can't go wrong."
