“Lorne has gone from strength to strength since its recovery from its awful flash flood”, which closed it for a significant portion of 2018 – “it’s a measure of the warm feelings it generates that just about all staff came back when the restaurant reopened, as did all the regulars who had become loyalists in a relatively short period of time”. Owned and run by Katie Exton and Peter Hall, it’s a “tranquil space” with “no fuss and no pretentiousness”, but “unexpectedly good, seasonal food for a street a stone’s throw from Victoria, and lined with medium-priced, fast-food restaurants”. A good chunk of its appeal lies in its “vast and interesting wine list” on which “Katie provides guidance”.

“It arrived in a wave of critical approval and it well deserves all the praise it has received!” – Katie Exton and Peter Hall “have done an incredible job” with this “fantastic, relatively new addition to Pimlico” in the “tricky locale” near Victoria station. A “lovely little neighbourhood spot”, “the kitchen produces exquisite food using market-fresh produce” from a “concise, regularly-changing menu of inventive food that’s not overly fussy” but “executed delightfully, often with an unexpected twist”. “Front of house is the co-owner Katie, who will guide you through the excellent wine list: her wine knowledge is superb and her advice sensible and unpretentious”. (The restaurant was closed for a significant chunk of 2018 due to flooding, but has now reopened.)

“A triumph from the River Café/Chez Bruce/The Square’s Katie Exton and Peter Hall” – this “confident, new modern British kid on ever-more-interesting Pimlico culinary block” (on the same street as A Wong) is yet another reason to brave the “grimy streets surrounding Victoria station”. “The seasonal menu is expertly created and cooked” and matched with a “concise but astonishingly tempting wine list” in a “light”, simple space.
