Just a short walk up the Hill - well worth it

Hidden a few hundred meters away from central Wimbledon is this restaurant - Booked for a meeting with Rellies. Ambiance Great; Food and service Superb. Well worth a visit and a relaxing drink and meal in great surroundings - Able also to park in streets surrounding restaurant . an added bonus!

Definitely one of Wimbledons best, absolutely gorgeous. What a great night. A strong recommendation to consider dining here please. Just as a Northerner not used to the discretionary service charge but they seemed happy to help and remove it. We did tip in cash of course. Thanks. Will.

Enjoyed a great dinner on Saturday evening, restaurant was packed, service attentive, friendly and delicious simple seasonal food. My tuna to start and salmon curry were delicious, portions are large so go easy on the side orders. Good wine selection.

A cozy dinner for two at this popular restaurant was spoilt a bit by very mediocre food. The paté was ordinary and while my steak was lovely, they hadn't let it sit so it oozed all over the chips which ended up horribly soggy. I did mention it to our nice waitress who said she'd tell the manager. But if... More

This is our favourite restaurant for special occasions. I can't remember what I ate but it was delicious. Not a very helpful review I know. Worth a visit.

Beautiful food, it is a pleasure to get a nice meal out that doesn't taste over loaded with salt and butter. Tasted fresh.
