“Finally a great neighbourhood restaurant in Oval!”“a parched part of London where average offerings abound” – this bistro yearling comes courtesy of Matt Wells (co-owner of The Dairy, Clapham) and Andrew Bradford (from SW4 steakhouse, Knife). A modern bistro-type place, with the benefit of an outside terrace, it provides an “exciting” modern British menu and there’s a “committed team making it all happen”.


Now open in Oval, a May 2018 newcomer from Matt Wells (co-owner of The Dairy, Clapham) and his business partner from SW4 steakhouse Knife, Andrew Bradford. Unlike the tapas-y format which won The Dairy renown, it’s full-sized plates of Modern British cuisine here which is winning upbeat initial press reviews.

For 29 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
