Clapham-star Trinity’s younger sibling gains solid ratings for bringing affordable British bistro fare to the smart ‘Abbeville Village’ enclave. One or two diners “expect slightly better” from a patron of Adam Byatt’s calibre though – “adequate but didn’t quite hit the spot”.

Adam Byatt’s “nice local” in Abbeville Road doesn’t aim for the culinary fireworks of its stablemate Trinity, but generally delivers enjoyable modern bistro cuisine in a “relaxed” setting. There are a few reporters this year, however, who are “hoping for a return to form” saying that of late it “didn’t deliver” as hoped – perhaps a blip. Top Tip: “kids-eat-free Sunday Supper Club”.

Adam Byatt’s “friendly”, bistro spin-off from Trinity in Clapham is a “neighbourhood winner”, and even if not as accomplished as its sibling provides “plenty of choice” and scores “mostly hits” on the food front. Top Tip – “Sunday supper club with the children – they eat free and you can take your own wine with no corkage -£26 for set 3 courses”.

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).
