The Light House opened in 1999 to great critical acclaim and has gone from strength to strength ever since. Now well established as a friendly, neighbourhood restaurant with a modern, international menu and an inspiring selection of wines. The friendly, professional service contributes to its well deserved reputation as one on of the best places to eat in South West London. We now have air-conditioned dining too!

Great Christmas menu!

Had a super 2 course Christmas lunch. The food was delicious and the wine list was great, a very reasonable price range to choose from. The service is very good too. A high quality lunch at a more than reasonable price. Highly recommended!

This was the fourth time that we have eaten at the Light House, and we enjoyed our meals as always. The service, food selection and quality and wine list are superb. We'll be back.

I came here to celebrate my anniversary and had heard good things about this place so decided to give it a go. The food was expensive but tasted amazing. This isn't a place you would come to everyday and would probably come once every 3-4 months. I couldn't rate this place highly enough.

This was our first time to this establishment, Sunday lunch for 5. First impressions were of a busy, well-run place. Service was attentive and prompt, nicely paced throughout the meal. Decor is pleasant and relaxing, didn't feel cramped. Clean toilets. Tap water was provided promptly. Bellinis were good and not too sweet. Starters (chicken liver terrine, risotto, wonton soup and...

Wonderful ambiance with food and service to match. The friendly staff made us very welcome and all our party of six commented on how good the food was. My 26 year old son even stated 'that was the best starter I have ever had in my life'. Will be returning.

A modern looking restaurant in Wimbledon Village, close to the common, with a light and airy feel. Pleasant, modern wooden tables with linen napkins and stylish crockery etc. I ate there with 2 friends but can only really comment on my food (my friends enjoyed theirs) Starter was a good quality chicken liver pate, served with crispy tasty toast and...

Another one of those great restaurants that have won its place in Wimbledon society. Great Food - fabulous service and nice quiet ambiance, even when its heaving with guests.
