This week in eat my words, we speak to Ryan Lowery from Lamberts restaurant in Balham. Lamberts is somewhat of a diamond in the rough, South West London not being the epicentre of the city’s culinary world. That being said I have often found local neighbourhood restaurants serve up just as good and even better food than many of the more famous London’s names and from all accounts Lamberts is pushing above its weight. It’s received amazing reviews across the board and a #1 spot on urbanspoon Londons Fine Dining List, it seems it is doing more than your average high street kitchen.
Serving seasonal British Cuisine Lamberts offer a great price mid-week and Saturday lunch menu – 2 courses for £17 or 3 for £20. Fairly amazing prices for anywhere in London.
