Currently all bookings are for outdoors only - we have two sections outdoors, the Gazebo & The Market seating. We have very limited seating for our Gazebo and are assigning to our guests who booked first. All of the the seating is covered but we do have some limitations on how many heaters we can have. Please dress warm as we are all outdoors for the time being. We look forward to seeing you all soon!

Fish & Chips
using cod, with homemade tartare and mushy peas
Mixed Seafood Platter (for 2)
with a whole lobster, tiger prawns and scallops; all cooked with lots of garlic and chilli butter served with hand cut chips and a mixed salad
served with a pea purée
Who serve was quite forceful for us to order 2 other dishes after we have ordered seafood platter .
I have to ask her several times why but only insisting that we do. aShe said the platter was for two person. But didn’t wait till I asked her to check first if it’s ok not to. She came back to say that we don’t have too in the end without any apologies.
The food was good but felt it was overpriced especially with just a bowl of chips and salad .
Very good dinner - the food was delicious as well as the service
Although the food was really tasty, the portions were very small which meant it didn’t feel like good value.
Especially dishes such as the crustinis, sides of spinach and truffle mash. These were all so small that it felt very expensive.
The service was good though, and the ambience, but due to the price I wouldn’t rush back.
We were stuck in traffic on Saturday but the lovely hospitable staff kept our table and they are so lovely and the food is always amazing, it was worth the wait of getting a table for our first meal out since lockdown
I was really looking forward to dining out, I found the service very poor with staff forgetting orders. The cocktails were watered down and although I loved the main course, I won’t be visiting the restaurant again.
They were very nice and accommodating at the restaurant with the chance in our group size and when we requested to be closer to heating. The food was excellent. Highly recommended
Great fresh fish and lovely service however portion size was disappointing - £10 for one scallop is day light robbery
Huge Thankyou to the staff that kindly accommodated me when I had booked for the wrong date in error! It was my birthday celebration so means a lot!
First meal out of the year and loved every minute. Applebys is a credit to Borough market
We had the the hot seafood platter for two - excellent! Recommend the Gavi to go with it
Food was really tasty.
Service was good, the food took a little while to come out but we was offered some free bread with butter 😁
Ended up in the overflow section outside. It was still lovely, although chilly even with the heater. Overall a very lovely experience.
Excellent meal and friendly, attentive staff. Sophisticated menu but not pretentious - just be aware you’re paying zone 1 prices - but it is worth it for the food and the experience.
Absolutely love it here, Champs oysters and sea food, plus great service what more can you want ❣️🙌🏻
Great service from friendly staff food was excellent as usual at reasonable price I had cod and chips for £15 great value. Wine from £25 ipa and lager at £5.75 per pint.
Only fault is there is only one toilet cubical so long wait to use it.
Thanks Hazel - we were actually adding another toilet during the lockdown and it ran over by a day decorating it, but it's open now so we have two now! Glad you had a nice meal despite this. Jack
Really great food, highly recommend the cod main dish with samphire which was delicious.
There was a long wait between the bread and the starters and we were sat by the door which didn’t fully close so occasionally got a cold draught. However, it was a really enjoyable evening overall and when the food came out it was brilliant.
Rushed through each course and as starters were finished the main was put down, with no opportunity to have a break. Shortly after finishing the main, we were advised our table had been booked for the next sitting and we needed to move outside. 10 minutes later we were asked to move again to a place that was not heated and was cold. Not what I consider good service when you’re spending £100pp with drinks. Food was delicious and spot on, but considering the change of environment of hospitality restrictions, it felt they were overbooked and rushing customers.
Lovely food. Very good choice. Service excellent too
Very Good! Excellent Service and Food. For me the Tuna was the best.
Excellent food, well presented. Discrete, quality service.
Service was poor when the restaurant was not at all busy. Our main courses arrived 45 minutes after our starters and we were charged for a creme brûlée when neither of us had a dessert.
I would not recommend visiting during a busy time, but the food was great.
The service and food was excellent. Really much appreciated - Thanks to everyone
From start to finish we had a lovely service from the staff!
I would highly recommend the mussels and the seafood platter!!!
The food is so delicious. Ingredients are so fresh and the speed of service is great.
Food was good, the staff were cheery and helpful. We weren’t rushed and had a lovely lunch. Would go again.
Superb food and service. Sat outside (socially distanced with friends). Great atmosphere. Will definitely go again, whether inside or out.
Beautiful food with a good selection of different types of fish . Highly recommend to friends or family .
We had a really lovely girls lunch at Applebees, they were very good with the Covid restrictions. Service was excellent and the food delicious, highly recommend it.
Been going back there again and again. Never been disappointed with its food and service.
Excellent fish as always and good value. Staff working hard to maintain COVID-19 safety
Great place, really cosy with the heaters, and really friendly service. I changed my booking elsewhere a few days later to go back.
Always a lovely culinary experience. Try the Pork and Scallops dish to be really blown away as either a starter or a main!
The restaurant needs to do something about the temperature, it was very cold. When we asked we were told, the heating isn't powerful enough to keep the place warm. They eventually moved us and brought a heater. Other than that, the food was nice!
Amazing food, amazing cocktails, amazing service!!
Love this place! It’s one of the little gems of Southwark has to offer...
Tier 2 eating - safe, outside, heated, fish very good, service likewise. Issue is prices are creeping up but why not - am glad they are still in business and I can support them.
Simple but creative and very well executed menu.
1. Tuna tartar on crostini (excellent but would prefer it on a sourdough toasted thin slice).
2. Very good arancini (lobster), crispy and yet moist, the rice cooked to perfection.
Crusted cod, with samphire butter. Cod was perfectly cooked, flaky, samphire not too overpowering.
2. Tuna steak with sautée small-chunk vegetables. Melt in the mouth tuna, really good. Sizeable portion as well.
1. Truffled mashed potatoes, really creamy and lightly seasoned with truffle oil.
2. Boiled green beans, crunchy and good quality.
We shared a crème brûlée with a hint of saffron and raspberry coulis. Was very good, crispy top, creamy underneath.
Will certainly return. Want to try the seafood platter.
I write a review every time I go to this restaurant as I love it! Food staff perfect!
Our food arrived cold and with no taste. I have been in this particular restaurant a year ago and the experience was completely different- food tasted amazing and we had an asking time. Sadly this time it was very different
The current table time limit was a little restrictive, we did not get to order a dessert as ran out of time. Everything else was great.
