Description: Lamberts Restaurant serves seasonal British food in casual, comfortable surroundings with relaxed, friendly and professional service. With an excellent team of chefs led by rising star Matt Harris you know you are in for a treat. Great care and attention is put into sourcing all the produce, be it Middlewhite Pigs from Huntsham Farm or new season Asparagus from High Hall Farm in Suffolk.

When I planned my trip back to London I was told there was a chance to go there and I definitely said yes, after years I still had great memories of my meals at Lamberts.
The place is always tidy, kind of quiet even if busy and packed, sober wooden furniture makes you feel very comfortable and at ease.
A first look at the menu and you feel at home, typical English food and ingredients, simple products but extremely tasty and as usual well mixed and prepared.
I went for a smoked makarel dish to start with followed by Roast Beef (pity the Roast Goose had run out so early though).
I finish this perfect lunch with the famous Neil's Yeard cheese selection that won't disappoint, all accompaigned by a nice glass of fine port, while eating we drunk our own wine as you can bring your own paying a fair corkage fee.
The service is as usual present and efficient even if, maybe a new one, forgot to explain us the cheese, a little detail.
Again a great time at Lamberts and for a very reasonable £40 each

We wanted to have our wedding meal in a local restaurant where we knew the food and service would be excellent and where we could have exclusive use, easier said than done! Originally we spoke to Chez Bruce who were quite blase and quoted a staggering fee. We then spoke to Joe at Lamberts who was very enthusiastic and happy to accommodate us in lots of little ways that made a big difference. We had 45 guests who all raved about the food and wine, the menu was tweaked to include some more of our favorite things and we added our own decorations/played our own music and had the run of the restaurant for 4 hours. Joe even compered the speeches for us at the last minute! Many of our local friends were amazed they hadn't discovered such a fantastic restaurant sooner. The quality of the food and the value is incredible, I would highly recommend for a regular meal, a special occasion or a private party. Thanks again to all the team for making our day so perfect.

Confession time. Lambert's is probably the closest decent restaurant to where we live, yet for various reasons we've only been there twice before. A reprise just after Christmas with a group of friends after reading some of the reviews and plaudits made us question exactly why we'd ignored this truly excellent restaurant virtually on our doorstep for so long? Handily yards from Balham tube station, many others should be equally glad of the opportunity to leave the car at home and travel from further afield.
Lamberts sources quality fresh seasonal products from specialist suppliers and the results are truly excellent. Portions are more generous than many so-called fine dining establishments, the welcome and service levels much less starchy but just as efficient, and the atmosphere is convivial, warm and relaxed. Lamberts is also astonishingly good value at £30 for three courses.
We will return.

Perfect meal here and I'm fairly tricky to please. It's a gem of a restaurant where the staff give you just the right level of service and the chef cooks up stunning modern British food. They make it seem so easy where other places struggle.

Can't recommend it highly enough.

The food here is superb and very good value and the service is friendly, smiling and efficient. I ate delicious squid, excellent lamb and great Christmas pudding.
