The food is excellent, the interior lovely, a great location, very good value....so why was it empty? When we arrived, the restaurant was dark and looked closed. The only reason we knew it was open was because we had booked in advance. Although only open from 12-2pm for lunch, the glass doors and outside chairs and tables were only put... More

We were staying in London to celebrate our wedding anniversary and looking for somewhere to have a anniversary meal. We booked this restaurant after finding its website and liked its ethos of cooking with seasonal products. The staff were very attentive but discrete which is something we like when eating out. The menu varied and offers a good selection, the... More

Very disappointing. Starter of tomato salad was tiny - 3 cherry tomatoes for £7? Mine was a big slab of white fish on mushy peas. Not your traditional starter! Main course was better but nothing to write home about. Lovely bits of black pudding though. Dessert was another disappointment - burnt meringue, the caramel banana was a thin sliver of... More

As the menu changes every month, locals are always excited to eat here, and do frequently! The staff are attentive and friendly, quality of food and flavours is incredible value compared to city menus. Excellent wine list. Appetisers and mains have always been near perfection, but a fresh look at desserts would be welcomed.

We've been to Lamberts many times and the standard is consistently faultless. Last night's wild rabbit/poached coley starter and lamb/wether/mutton main had us once again reaching for the superlatives and the atmosphere, as ever, was relaxed and convivial. Quite simply, our favourite place to eat.

One of the best local restaurants in Balham and we often go on special occasions. Great food which has never disappointed, and it never feels crowded or too loud. Good drinks selection too. My only niggle is that if you have forked out on a bottle of champagne it would be nice if the waiter could refill glasses through the... More

Had a fantastic lunch here. Friendly welcome and enjoyed the suggested aperitif "spring awakenings" which was gin based and very refreshing on a hot day. The charred asparagus with wild nettle purée and Hafod crisp starter was sooo tasty although the haddock looked and tasted good too. For mains we were spoiled for choice, I had the sole, my daughter... More

This is one of my favourite restaurants in London and Balham. I have eaten there many times and it is always consistently good. The ingredients are of very good quality always cooked to perfection. I always tend to go for the fish as I think is what they cook best, but maybe this is just my preference. The décor is... More

This is a very nice restaurant. It's smart without being pretentious, and has a nice intimate atmosphere which London restaurants/chains sometimes lack. If this was in central London it would definitely be £10-£15 more expensive, so I think it's not a bad price for a sophisticated restaurant. The service was excellent without being overbearing/encroaching. Food was amazing. Had the smoked... More

This is a fabulous local restaurant. Food, service and atmosphere are amazing. If you're in the area it's a must. They do a great value deal at lunchtimes as well.
