A memorable evening, quite superbly presented. I am quite closely involved with Peckham's history. Events like this contribute to the regeneration of Peckham as a cultural hub. Well done!

6 of us shared starters and desserts and had a main each, plus some sides. The smoked mackerel starter and venison were my choices, and were eye-rollingly good... The ganache dessert tasted amazing, but maybe could do with a bit of polish with presentation! Wines were good, with a great 'shrub' non-alcoholic drink for the driver, and had a luscious dessert wine to finish. Service was great - friendly, and there when you needed it. Excellent!

Well since you ask, I was actually generally a bit disappointed, as I felt the meal was quite expensive and yet there were some basic things wrong with the cooking, service and portion sizes. Ambience: We didn't enjoy having to shout at each other across the table. It is such a noisy place which didn't create a particularly relaxing ambience for a birthday meal. The waiting was a bit amateur, which would be fine if the meal wasn't so pricey. The waiter kept kicking the back of my chair. And when he was taking the plates away after both courses, he held the balanced plates right next to my face! I had to lean well to the side to avoid getting a plate in the eye. The steak was a very small portion. Serving it sliced is presumably a trick to make us think we have received a bigger portion. The trick didn't work. It was a disappointing amount of meat. My partner who ordered the steak, also ordered a side of dauphinoise potatoes without realising the dish already included a large baked potato. It would've been decent if the waiter had kindly pointed out to him that the steak already came with potato, and perhaps he would like to choose a different vegetable for his side. That is the kind of service I would expect from a thoughtful waiter. Instead my partner ended up with a lot of potato and not much meat! Garlic sautéed kale: the garlic was burned which made it bitter. I thought that was a bit sloppy, it's a pretty basic thing to know not to burn garlic. My vegetarian dish came with charred chicory. Again I found this more burned than charred and could only eat the unburned parts. Does the chef have a thing about charcoal flavours? The smoked mackerel starter was delicious. Great taste and texture. But it was crying out for a bit of bread on the side, for a different texture. It's a bit like serving pate without the toast. But I suppose you would have wanted me to pay extra for bread. Bit mean I thought. Lastly – you need better cutlery. Fish should be served with a fish knife. And my main came with a knife which was smooth like a butter knife – the complete lack of serration made it impossible to cut anything.

Lovely selection of wine and other drinks. Beautifully home made food such as smoked fish and selection of fermented vegetables and pickles. Beautiful interior. What more do I need to say? Thank you for a wonderful evening!

I have a broken leg and came wearing a moonboot. The staff were very nice to me and found us a table out of the way of people traffic. The food and service were terrific.

We had a lovely evening helped by cocktails & delicious food. I felt the wine is quite expensive for what it is but the food was delicious. All 4 of us enjoyed our meal. We over ordered on the sides & the waiter could have suggested less considerating the portion sizes, the cost & the wastage but that said it was delicious. Dessert was extremely rich & looked tiny on arrival but was fine for 4 to have a small taste of chocolate. The fish was cooked to perfection. Staff were attentive but let us get on with it. I think we were quite loud by the end of the night. I have already recommended it to quite a few friends. We'll be back.

It was brilliant. We had a lovely time. I had a delicious piece of meat on beans and my partner had a delicious piece of meat on who can remember because the wine was so good. You should go.

Amazing flavours! Genuinely impressed by the quality of ingredients, tasted amazing. Cooking was almost 10/10. All the meat starters were awesome especially the Parma ham and sweet nuts. Wasn't the the biggest fan of the tomatos and cheese but my girlfriend really enjoyed it so I guess it's a matter of personal taste! Pasta sauce was amazing with parmazan and mushrooms was amazing! Personally I'd like them a little more 'aldente' but nonetheless hats off to the chef. Waiter was super nice, sorry dont remember your name but thank you for the service, very kind and relaxed. I will definitely come back. Keep it up! Drinks were smashing btw!

What a fabulous find! My partner and I booked for dinner as we were attending an event close by. The ambience is wonderful - couples and families side by side, busy and not at all pretentious. The food is simply class leading - a small but thoughtful menu using very fresh ingredients and with considerable imagination. I had the smoked duck to start and my partner had the octopus - from the first mouthful our choice of venue was confirmed! For mains, we had the bavette steak (sublime!) and the confirmation of duck. The wine list is short - but excellent quality. We'll be back - and soon!

Friendly service. Food was decent, however meal felt very rushed (9pm sitting for dinner). Barely a gap between courses. Odd to serve steak with no chips/fries option on menu. Pretty much restaurant prices yet cheap paper hand towels instead of proper napkins. Beer fly problem. Enjoyable, but one of those places which could be great but needs to try that little bit harder.

Meal was good but for the price I was expecting larger portions. We were plagued by flies during our meal. The toilet was filthy and there was no soap. I won't be back in a hurry.
