Came after hearing good reviews. It’s a bit of a trek away from tooting but busses stop nearby. Lovely service and food, we both had the Peggy and then could not resist a salted caramel brownie to take home. Will be back!

Stumbled across Cut the Mustard while visiting friends in London. Great people, great place. Obviously popular with the locals and for good reason. Highly recommended.
