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

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”.

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).
