Enjoyed Sunday lunch, albeit it being Fathers' Day. Always a good choice for the set menu, two or three courses, and an acceptable wine list. Terrine, mackerel and crabmeat were the chosen entrees, and mains were Dexter beef, fish and lamb. All delicious... Service efficient...More

This restaurant is very close to Balham station so no worries about drinking/driving! Nicely furnished, we had a warm welcome! Very good food and wine (we had an Argentinian Mendoza), with helpful and friendly service. Sadly, the only fault is no gluten free bread/rolls!
