Had a fantastic meal at Lamberts last week. This is a proper foodie place at non-foodie prices. All the ingredients are ethically sourced from the UK and every meal we ordered (there were 5 of us) was absolutely beautiful. An absolute gem not to be missed.

Eight of us had a meal here on a Saturday night, and not one of us had anything to complain about over three courses. Highlights was the pickled herring as a starter and the pigeon was cooked to a tee. Mains, the cassoulet was popular and didn't disappoint and the pork belly with the faggot was brilliant. Must come back... More

We came here with my parents on Saturday night for my birthday (we hadn't told them, I don't like a fuss!). We had booked for 7.30pm, and arrived about 5 mins late. We sat down and were given our menus, but then had to wait another 10 minutes before she came back and explained what the fish of the day... More

The TripAdvisor omens were good. One review even went so far as to compare Lambert's favourably with Chez Bruce. Balham has improved massively for dining out since I moved there in 1981. We needed somewhere near the station for our friends from Kent to get away easily and Lambert's sounded good. What could possibly go wrong? Well, the main course... More

Love this place - if I want a mid-priced neighbourhood dinner I rarely go anywhere else. Superb seasonal food, sourced from local independent suppliers, I have never had any thing less than great food here. Really handy for the Northern line for those who rarely head to South London - and well worth the trip.

This place is great to go for their midweek market menu which changes weekly according to what is available and offers excellent value. The staff are polite and the decor is tasteful. I have to say the sourdough bread is one of the best I've had in London- and is served warm! The food was well-presented and delicious; as were... More

Probably one of the best secret gems in London. Food was as good as any restaurant you will find in london, service is formal and very good. If you live in london or if you visit London this is definitely a place to visit price/quality is excellent. It is not in the centre of london but definitely worth the 10... More

Me and my friend ended up in Lamberts on a cold Wednesday night looking for a place to grab a bite. Little did we know, Lamberts was so nice but not too posh and served such delicious food. We had an amazing beef pie and pigeon for start. It is a little pricey but you do have delicious food and... More

We have been to Lamberts a number of times in recent years (the most recent visit was on Christmas Eve for lunch) and it remains our favourite restaurant in Balham. Specialising in food that is in season means they have a changing choice depending on when you go, but the menu always features something interesting. There is also a children's... More

We came here 2 weeks ago, a last minute decision and were lucky to get a place for 2 for an early dinner. All their food is carefully sourced and the menu tells you exactly which farm it came from. For starters we had the Devon crab and the pork rillettes, to follow we both had the goose, which was... More
