“As brilliant as ever” – Joe Sharratt and Margaux Aubry’s “unassuming space” in Brixton is “everything you’d want from a local and more” – making it stand out on the South London gastronomic scene. The “laid-back vibe belies a serious approach to food and wine”, resulting in French-inspired “plates of pure pleasure”“so much better than the fancy fly-by-night trendy places that are all queues, instagram and foam”. Top Menu Tip – “they serve the BEST butter you will ever taste”.

Joe Sharratt and Margaux Aubry’s informal French-inspired Brixton venue is a true leader of South London gastronomy, serving small sharing plates of “the best grub” and “most exciting wines” south of the river. “Margaux is a treasure – a Lyon-hearted wonder” who provides guests with expert guidance through the menu and excellent wine list. Foodie composer/impresario Andrew Lloyd Webber was such a fan that he invited the team to launch a spin-off at his ‘The Other Place Theatre’ in Victoria.

“A Brixton gem” – Joe Sharratt and Margaux Aubry’s French-inspired small-plates venue “is a wonder”, and wins plaudits across the board for “food, wine, service and vibe that are just unbeatable!” “What I love is that the menu doesn’t constantly change – they’re creating modern classics that will endure, especially the pork belly and the crab salad”. “Margaux is a miracle of grace, enthusiasm and good taste”“she keeps some of the most interesting drinks in town and she’s got the gift of knowing how to translate one’s vague ideas into actual glasses of loveliness and surprise”. “Book well ahead as it is always crammed.” (As at September 2021, the offshoot at Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Other Palace theatre in Victoria remains closed due to the pandemic.)

Joe and Margaux Sharratt’s “distressed-chic Brixton/Brockwell Park fixture” continues to win “top marks” for its French-inspired “small-plates at reasonable prices” (“if I lived next door I’d get rid of my kitchen!”). The “friendly, chatty and informal staff” and “South London style” also go down well, although the occasional reporter is “not so sure about the natural wines”. The same team has opened a sister venue at Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Other Palace theatre in Victoria (see also).

For 33 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).

Reviewed 9 months, 14 days ago

"Every small plate was delicious, without exception, but especially the fried cauliflower. The only complaint is that the menu is small and rarely changes which makes this a once a year treat rather than a regular haunt. The main dining area at the back can feel a little claustrophobic and dark but the service does a great job in making you feel welcome."
