Outstanding - what a pleasure

Gorgeous menu, great £20 two course deals, staff are helpful and the chef is great. Check opening times before you visit as they close early some days. Fancy seasonal British menu but affordable. Great for dates.

Excellent food and wine with attentive service on a Saturday night in Balham. The pigeon starter was great and the rump of lamb just sublime to say nothing of the ginger and syrup pudding which just blew me away.

My colleagues asked me for a recommendation of a place to hold our Christmas meal and as I've been meaning to try out this place (since it opened), this seem like the perfect chance to do so. On arrival, we found crackers next to a personalised menu with a Mr Men character, which we enjoyed. We ordered the set Xmas... More

Recommended to Lamberts by virtually everyone we've ever met in South London, a family group aged 4-84 rolled up for lunch. Perfection - a truly memorable meal in every way (all the good ways, that is). Lovely friendly waitresses, comfy chairs and crisp linen on the tables, the food is ridiculously good: beef cheek that melts in the mouth, pigeon... More

I've been here a couple of times and on both occasions had a fantastic meal. The food was fresh and delicious, the service excellent and very friendly, and the cost fairly reasonable for such a great meal. I would highly recommend this restaurant (and it is close to the tube so very easy to get to!)

Visited following recommendations from a number of friends. Very easy to travel to- a short walk from Balham train/underground station. The atmosphere is lovely; quiet and relatively formal but relaxed. I had the beef cheek while my girlfriend had the hake, both of which were fantastic. Wine/cocktail selection was commendable and the service was attentive and friendly. Would definitely recommend,... More

We booked this restaurant on a recommendation from a 'foodie'. There was 19 of us for Christmas Sunday Lunch and from booking to departing yesterday it was a relaxed and very professional experience. The 3 course lunch was simply wonderful, the food seasonal, fresh and served meticulously. They'd also laid on crackers and made us feel as ease as were... More

We live fairly locally, had heard this was a restaurant worthy of 'special occasions' so as foodies we finally went with high expectations. Disappointing considering all great reviews, but then we do cook and have high standards. Started with fried coley and a ham hock with barley which was fine but frankly would have been better as a main. Both... More

Lambert is a wonderful "local" restaurant, in a slightly gastronomical desert...here in Tooting Bec/ Balham, most especially at lunch time. A gourmet yet unfussy place, confortable, professional, welcoming. Classical cuisine, along with personal choices and twists, never dull. Good choice of wines. Not pretentious, though ambitious and original, a real gem that we thorougly appreciate, treasure,and keep for special occasions.
