Featured Lewisham Restaurants
1. Catford Constitutional Club British, Modern restaurant in Lewisham Catford Broadway - SE6
“An oasis in the middle of the culinary desert” that is downtown Catford: the atmosphere – like the name – at this big (“cavernous”) and retro-looking gastropub channels the 1950s by the simple expedient of retaining the decor of the former Conservative club on the site. A smart modern menu is backed up by craft ales and ciders. (Lewisham Council owns the freehold and plans to redevelop it to provide affordable housing, while leaving CCC intact.) Top Tip – cute suntrap garden.
2. Paranhodu Korean restaurant in Lewisham 125 Lewisham Way - SE14
Down near Goldsmiths in need of a decent scoff? Don’t forget this “good, independent Korean” – a five-year-old café offering “a solid representation of all the classics: nice banchan, satisfying dolsot bibimbap and kimchi tofu stews etc”.
3. Sparrow British, Modern restaurant in Lewisham Rennell Street - SE13
“The best restaurant in Lewisham might sound like damning it with faint praise”, but this two-year-old indie is a “convivial neighbourhood spot” that fits the bill without too much irony. The first venture from husband-and-wife team Terry Blake and Yohini Nandakumar, it has a “very varied menu” (“mostly small plates”) that “divides into dishes with a Sri Lankan heritage and others with a strong ‘St John’ vibe (but without too much fusion-crossover going on”). “It can get a bit cramped, and hot with its big front windows facing a traffic-clogged and rather unlovely roundabout (currently being redeveloped with new housing/cinema/retail, etc)”.
4. Sanxia Renjia Chinese restaurant in Lewisham 36 Deptford Broadway - SE8
“Great food at a good price” continues to win acclaim for the Deptford branch of this Sichuanese duo, whose chilli-hot and numbing cuisine makes it one of SE8’s brighter culinary sparks. No feedback this year on its less noteworthy Goodge Street branch.
5. Winemakers Deptford British, Modern restaurant in Lewisham 209 Deptford High St - SE8
This Deptford newcomer is an ambitious spin-off (and first foray into food) from Winemakers Club, a Farringdon wine importers. The bijou restaurant features mostly organic and biodynamic wines, with food pairings a speciality.
