Visited here now on 3 occasions, and have been blown away by the quality of food coupled with excellent service. Lunch & dinner have been faultless. Good to see young chefs pushing boundaries & executing with precision. Keep up the good work James & team.

Hi there, Thanks for your lovely words about Donnelly's. We're glad you enjoyed the food and sorry it didn't have the atmosphere you were expecting. It's a busy area isn't it? Bermondsey Street is buzzing! We do hope you want to come and try us...More

Went for dinner with my daughter. Very busy, but we had a drink in adjoining bar and were contacted when a table was available. Great menu with half portions so you could try a couple of things. Lovely friendly and helpful staff. Very enjoyable evening.

Michael, Logan, Cassara & Joe were absolutely amazing! Drinks were great, they were hilarious and the truffle fries are a must do! Such a good atmosphere and it makes a difference when the staff aren’t moody like most places in London these days!

Went back for a rather gluttonous third trip before Donnelly's residency at the Sun and 13 Cantons finished and it was, as per my previous visits, an absolute taste sensation. The new lamb special was soft and full of flavour (and Chef kindly gave me...More
