Probably one of the best secret gems in London. Food was as good as any restaurant you will find in london, service is formal and very good. If you live in london or if you visit London this is definitely a place to visit price/quality is excellent. It is not in the centre of london but definitely worth the 10... More

Me and my friend ended up in Lamberts on a cold Wednesday night looking for a place to grab a bite. Little did we know, Lamberts was so nice but not too posh and served such delicious food. We had an amazing beef pie and pigeon for start. It is a little pricey but you do have delicious food and... More

We have been to Lamberts a number of times in recent years (the most recent visit was on Christmas Eve for lunch) and it remains our favourite restaurant in Balham. Specialising in food that is in season means they have a changing choice depending on when you go, but the menu always features something interesting. There is also a children's... More

We came here 2 weeks ago, a last minute decision and were lucky to get a place for 2 for an early dinner. All their food is carefully sourced and the menu tells you exactly which farm it came from. For starters we had the Devon crab and the pork rillettes, to follow we both had the goose, which was... More

This restaurant has recently been well reviewed in Hardens and we expected something more interesting. The menu was promising with traditional but infrequently seen dishes, e.g. Rilletes, goose, chicken and ham pie. But the reality was far more disappointing. The chicken pie was too crusty as if heated several times and the filling was too liquid and too salty. A... More

Visited here for a friend's Xmas meal. Ate the Xmas menu and all enjoyed lovely food. There were 8 adults and 8 kids and they were really welcoming. Great box of toys for the kids and colouring things all already on the table. Service was a little slow to get the starters but there were lots of tables I so... More

Having had our consultants xmas dinner at Lamberts last year and thoroughly enjoyed it, we decided to have a return for this year's outing. Unfortunately the whole experience was a real letdown. The food was not the same at all. The terrine was non descript and rather fatty and the roast turkey dinner tasted a bit like a microwave meal... More

The food here is fresh and delicious, and because it rotates every month with the seasons there's always something new to look forward to. My boyfriend and I had dinner here in November and demolished our dishes. The wine is also very good, and I normally don't drink. The restaurant is very close to Balham station, so it's very good...

Family all unexpectedly free for lunch so mid-week birthday lunch. Chosen for convenient venue it turned out to be a great meal. Super choice of food and it all arrived delicious. We will definitely return. Ambience a bit austere, and only one other table occupied.
