After living in Clapham for 2 years my husband and I finally got around to dining at Chez Bruce on Sunday night. The food was great and good value at £45 for 3 courses. You can pay much more in this area for food that isn't nearly as good. The highlight for me was the orange and polenta cake with creme fraiche and honey which was absolutely delicious.
The service was quite slow, we were there 20 minutes without having a drink order taken (I finally asked a waiter). The waiting staff were quite supercilious but I think that in an establishment with a Michelin star, they think it's mandatory to behave that way. It must be in the job description. As I wasn't drinking I asked whether they had any non-alcoholic cocktails, the waiter ummed and aahed then said they 'don't really do' cocktails but try to accommodate any requests. For a supposedly top class restaurant I found that a bit poor.
The quality of the food and the value for money overcame these minor niggles, and we will be back.
