This spin-off from Eric and Sarah Guignard’s redoubtable French Table in Surbiton can offer “first-class” cuisine with “professional and attentive service”, and – about to enter its fifth year – practically all reports agree that it’s been a “very welcome addition to the SW London restaurant scene”. It does take some flak, though, for “cooking that’s hit and miss – some dishes distinctly mediocre, but others excellent”.

An offshoot of Eric and Sarah Guignard’s highly rated and long-established French Table in neighbouring Surbiton, this accomplished three-year-old has proved “a great addition to the Wimbledon restaurant scene”, with “complex” Gallic cuisine, “executed to a very high standard” and “swift service”.

“To have a consistently good restaurant in Wimbledon” is a major boon, and this high quality two-year-old enchants its very large local fan club with “classic French cuisine” and “casual” style. The worst thing anyone says about the place is that “while very good, it’s not as good as its Surbiton sibling, The French Table”.

“This really could be it for Wimbledon finally cracking fine dining!” – Eric and Sarah Guignard’s ambitious yearling is, say fans, “just as good as its Surbiton sibling” (the well-known French Table) and brings “classic French cuisine plus a few surprise choices” to this perennially underserved ’burb. On the downside, “service is friendly but can be unfocused, the place can lack a little buzz” and the cooking strikes sceptics as “OK, but too fussy and overcomplicated”. Top Tip – “impressive set lunch”.
