Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Came here with my dad for his birthday. I have to say the food, service and experience were all amazing. Portion sizes are perfect, and the ox cheek croquette was insane. And the mocktails were a perfect accompaniment to the food. Our waiter Martin was...so helpful and attentive, in fact everyone working there was a credit to what both the charity and the prison are trying to achieve. Highly recommendedMore

I visited this restaurant for lunch for a family get-together. Look no further if you want a restaurant that offers exceptional food and an unforgettable dining experience. The ambience, quality of the food, and, above all, the exceptional service provided by waiter Tim make this...restaurant a standout. Whether celebrating a special occasion or simply looking for a memorable meal, I highly recommend experiencing remarkable service here.More

A delightful experience. First, two very slight criticisms: it was a bit chilly in the room, though I think that was just a mishap and we should have mentioned it earlier in the meal. Secondly, I like my food piping hot, if appropriate, but I...understand that making the food look attractive on the plate takes time. Otherwise, the food was excellent, interesting and even unusual. Best of all was the service from ‘our’ waiter who took the trouble to obtain the recipe for one dish and also lent his glasses so my wife could read the menu! I’ve never come across such an helpful waiter! And it was great to witness such a creative enterprise. I have no doubt that as much as anything, providing someone with the skills, training and experience in the culinary arts will greatly help with their future long term. Long live The Clink!More

Went to The Clink Restaurant in Brixton with three friends for Sunday lunch. The security staff checked us in. The lockers are small so don't take much with you as they're strict about what is and isn't allowed inside. No cameras allowed inside so I...couldn't take any photos of the food, but the presentation was superb and the servings were generous. I also recommend the homemade ginger beer. The whole experience from start to finish was great and all the staff were kind, courteous and efficient.More

Celebrated my husbands birthday here. Food was excellent. The fish was perfect and he had the venison which received five stars. The choclate genoise with salted caramel and olive oil ice cream was delicious. Tim was just brilliant and very enthusiastic. We had another waiter...whose name I cannot recall. He was shy but once chatting was very engaging and clearly enjoying working there. The barista was a real professional And very friendly. The staff really try hard to look after you. I’d recommend this experience. It’s a very good charity to support and the cooking was imaginative and delicious.More

What an fantastic experience , Where do I start upon arrival we were greeted by a lovely lady who told us all the rules with her comedy jokes in-between to make the experience of entering a prsion less daunting. When we entered the restaurant you...wouldnt of known you was in a prison the atmosphere was just like being in a restaurant. It was cleaner than most restaurants ive been to that aren't in prsions. Our Waiter Tim was amazing he was very knowledgeable about the drinks menu and the food menu he gave recommendations for both and made sure we were happy and looked after throughout the whole the experience. The starter arrived in good time the food was like a michein star restaurant along with the mains & dessert. Honestly some of the best food I have ever tasted. I will definitely be recommending this experience to people in the future. Thank You to Tim and the rest of his team for everything.More

Hi Brixton Station is about 10 minutes walk away. Not sure about parking as we got the train. Definitely go though as it’s worth the money
