We came across this restaurant by chance as it was close to our B&B. What an excellent find! Delicious fresh food, very friendly service, comprehensive wine list and good value too!

This informal café has a welcoming vibe even for the first-timer. This part of the ambience is certainly set by the friendly proprietor but extends to the staff as well. This informality though does not mean sloppy service; indeed, we were served well and professionally by the staff. The food was impressively good, without a single weak dish of the four we tried. First-rate ingredients prepared just right was the key. Presentation is straight-forward but still attractive. Miller’s Thumb is definitely worth a repeat visit.

I have been to this restaurant on so many occasions and have never been disappointed. The format is simple - fish dishes and a meat dish make up the majority of the menu (and the only things I and most of my guests have tried so far) and can be ordered in different preparation styles (Cajun, for example is my fave). Jane will let you know all the different type of fish that are available, and the preparation methods available for that day in addition to those shown in the menu. All the fish is fresh, and the beef rump is tender and perfectly prepared.

There is a healthy, but not exhaustive selection of wines on the blackboard.

Desserts also vary - if they have the Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake, you cannot go wrong.

Laid back and easygoing atmosphere - does get noisy when it is full up, which is basically every night.

Reserve early.

Stellar bistro-like dining where the creative team truly love to showcase fish. Make sure you have reservations, as this place is packed. Selections change daily, and be prepared for tight quarters. Worth every morsel, though.

Everything about Miller's is simply wonderful - the service is friendly , the food simply amazing (try the Malay Carpenter)

Just wish there was somewhere like it here in SE London
