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!

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!

Visited here just recently with a friend. It was a last minute thing and we booked to make sure. Just as well as soon the restaurant was buzzing and pretty full. However as full as it was there was plenty of room. The atmosphere in the restaurant was great. The staff fantastic. The menu wonderful something for everyone. The quality... More

Went a few years back and was disappointed so didn't go back. Last week we were invited by friends so were not expecting a lot but... this is what a restaurant should be; limited but very good menu, friendly and knowledgeable staff, buzzy atmosphere and attentive staff. Very good wine list, especially by the glass, and the set meals are... More

What a treat it is to visit the Light House on Wimbledon’s Ridgeway – we do use it fairly regularly and it never fails to meet expectation. This week we lunched off the set menu (£14.95 for two courses or £18.95 for three) which offers four choices for each course. I opted for Panko salmon nori roll, wasabi crème fraiche... More

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.

We had an excellent experience at the Lighthouse. Our hosts were very accommodating given the extended finish to the tennis, the staff friendly and attentive without being obtrusive. We all had steak, each with a different requirement from rare to medium and each one was marvellous. We also loved the buzz of the place and will certainly return when we... More

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

Always a good meal, pleasant atmosphere and friendly helpful staff. Whether it's lunch or dinner I have always been pleased with the choice on menu, taste and presentation are pleasing.

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.
