Living in South East London, I’m comfortably out of the hubbub majority of central London- the most part of new openings fall well out of my travel card zone and the dream of having a local tube station is comfortably a distant reality (2019 people)! So, when talk turns to exciting new openings a stones throw away from home, it’s safe to say Joe and I will always try and be some of the first through the door- which is where Llewelyn’s in Herne Hill comes in…

Having heard whispers of this beautiful place across Instagram for a little while now, I was over the moon to hear of an official opening date- and choosing the hottest day of the year so far- we set out one warm weekend for a lunch by the railway- amongst the buzz of the Sunday famers market and chatter of those eating al fresco too.

Situated next to the station, it’s a perfect location for locals and visitors alike, and with a menu boasting breakfast, lunch and dinner- there’s plenty of reason to swing by at your leisure too. Opting for the lunch menu, we tucked into small plated starters including deep fried artichokes with aioli and oak-smoked salmon, followed by fresh Dover sole, chicken and delicious chocolate cake with spelt ice cream to finish- and couldn’t have left more happy and full.

But, naturally- if you don’t fancy three courses or small sharing plates- Llewelyn’s also boasts a range of homemade counter bakes, fresh pressed juices and a selection of herbal brews from local Good & Proper too. It’s the ultimate friendly-face dining space, and despite being beautifully design led with an innovative and locally sourced menu, there’s nothing pretentious about Llewelyn's- and I can assure you you’ll feel right at home (even if you have had to make a train journey across the city)…

  5. The food looks really good! There are so many restaurants and cafés in London that look amazing, that it's difficult to pick one when I go there for the day. South-East is just a little too far away for me, but this definitely seems like a lovely place!
