“Smashing it out of the park” – this three-year-old Italian, on Deptford’s high street close to the station, is a prized local in these parts, with first-class pasta the highlight of a short menu, using British as well as Italian ingredients. It’s the lesser-known sibling to Peckham star, Artusi.

“Another great place in burgeoning Deptford” – this “neighbourhood-style Mediterranean bistro on the increasingly-hip High Street” is a year-old sibling to Peckham’s Artusi. “It’s simple in style, but the food is very well executed”.

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).
