About the restaurant
Trinity reopened in October 2015 with the same ethos, culture and team whilst recreating a new and refreshing backdrop - retaining its sophistication and remaining a restaurant of significance in Clapham.
An alfresco dining area accommodates 16 guests, the dining room seating 40 guests that now have a clear view into an open plan kitchen with banquette seating surrounded by the soft hues of jade green and dusty heather pink.
Staying true to his style of cookery, the new menu will focus on Adam’s interpretation of great classics in a relaxed and approachable setting.
The kitchen presents a four course a la carte menu for a set price of £70 for lunch and £120 for dinner. The wine list continues to offer great value with the Chef's Cellar List (just add VAT and corkage), increasing both our quantity and quality and a overall extension to the main wine list of up to 400 bins now on display in the feature wine cellar on the ground floor.

Always a lovely place for our Monday date night with my husband. The service is great and the wine choice is extensive. They have a lovely terrace, so we can even bring our dog when the weather is good (large dogs like our Lab are not allowed inside). Now, let’s talk about the pièce de résistance – the rotisserie chicken. It’s a dish that transcends the ordinary, with its flavorsome and succulent meat. The jus is a smooth symphony that enhances every bite, creating a harmonious blend with the perfectly cooked fries (there is also a side of a leafy salad for those who want to balance the fries). It’s not just a meal; it’s a perfect dinner.

Surrey Quays
About the restaurant
The Yellow House Bar and Kitchen in south London’s Surrey Quays near the shopping centre is a big, warm hug of a local bar and restaurant. The owner is on site and usually in the kitchen preparing one of three menus on offer: the restaurant menu, the grill menu and the pizza menu. The Yellow House had an earlier incarnation in Plough Way, but has moved to more intimate premises with a slick, post-Industrial vibe when it comes to décor, but still the same perfectionist’s attention to detail, relaxed ambience, warm welcome and passion about the food on the plate. Locals love this place. The Yellow House European cuisine offers dependable classics like grilled Scottish beef burger on ciabatta with hand-cut chips, thin-crust pizzas from the wood-fired pizza oven, and seared snapper with basil mash, minestrone and rouille. There’s a log-burning stove in the bar for wintry days and a great selection of wines and draught premium lagers.

About the restaurant
Bringing Chef James Cochran to Islington’s ever-evolving food scene with his restaurant 12:51. Having won the popular BBC TV programme ‘Great British Menu’, the talented chef will be bringing some of his dishes from the show to the tables of 12:51.
Situated right in the heart of the bustling Upper Street, 12:51 seats 38. The venue welcomes guests serving a 5-course taster menu only for lunch and dinner - £49pp. On Sunday is our famous 12:51 Sunday roast menu only!
The venue has a minimal, studio-like interior, dotted with quirky features from the original Victorian building. The double-height windows on the ground floor allow natural daylight to flood in and will be a space for changing contemporary artwork from artists from the local community and friends of the 12:51 team. 12:51 has a curated playlist of classic funk, soul, hip hop and rock & roll tunes to take diners from day tonight. Just to be aware that we don't cater for vegans or dairy-free. Booking could be on a high table.

About the restaurant

Encapsulating the architectural elegance and history of Vienna and wider Central-Europe, The Delaunay evokes the spirit of grand café dining, infusing it with a sense of timeless appeal.

Located by Covent Garden and in the heart of theatre-land, the menus celebrate European flavours, often spotlighting lesser-known continental dishes.

Open early for breakfast, through to lunch and dinner, The Delaunay is open seven days a week. Alongside the restaurant, there is also a bar and counter setting. The Counter offers refined but easy dishes for brief stops or takeaway, whilst the bar is a cossetting and imaginative place for pre-or-post dinner cocktails.

Ideally located for the theatre district, offering excellent prix fixe menus and a comprehensive European - Austrian menu in elegant ambience. Food and service was flawless and banquet seating was comfortable..We were greeted by Eva who found us the perfect table. The best chicken schnitzel in London, I am told by my son; compared favourably to big Sister, The Wolseley.

About the restaurant
A restaurant, wine bar and fermenting kitchen - we're open for lunch Wednesdays to Sundays and dinner all week.

Our menu changes monthly and our cooking is simple and seasonal. It's here we make all our seasonal ferments, pickles and drinks - all of which you can buy ready jarred from our fridge.

Our large kitchen counter is the centrepiece, and you’re invited to grab a seat, order something to eat and enjoy the workings of life in our kitchen. In the evening, the lights go down, dinner is served and you can enjoy wines by the glass and bottle from our ever-changing wine list of natural and biodynamic wines.
