Harden's survey result
“Fun, buzzy, hipster, and tiny” – Robin Gill’s 16-seater in Clapham (an offshoot of his Dairy, next door) is known for its “novel and ever-changing”, small-plates cuisine based around ‘pickling, fermenting, curing and bottling the best of the season’s produce’. “You don’t go for comfort though!”, given its bum-numbing stools. It won high ratings this year, but may be about to get even better: star ex-Stem chef Sam Ashton Booth joined in July 2019 and is set to introduce a new menu ‘The Allotment’, with produce supplied by Bedfordshire-based co-collaborator, Jake ‘Wiggo’ Ball (who does the growing).
“It’s cramped – 16 covers (stools) in a small space – but the food can be tremendous” at this two-year-old offshoot from Robin Gill’s Dairy in Clapham Common (and even though it didn’t score quite as highly as next door this year, the ability to BYO for £10 corkage can make it a very decent overall bargain).
A year-old offshoot from Robin Gill’s well-known Dairy next door, this “very little restaurant” (15 seats) knocks out “great-tasting”, “well-sourced” small dishes on the Pavement in Clapham; “very friendly” service too.
“New from the Dairy (next door). Tapas food... no bookings”. As the name suggests the focus is on kitchen counter-style dining with just 15 seats (six right on the pass) and its “excellent” pintxos are “full of flavour”; you can even BYO.

"Fun, buzzy, hipster, and tiny. You’re part of the show and the food while not offering choice is gutsy and lovingly prepared. Do not go for comfort though!"
