At Chez Bruce we are not particularly into gadgets and tricks in the kitchen. Home-made charcuterie, slow cooked braises, offal, warm and cold salads, classical desserts and bread-making could be listed as specialities. We also take the cheese board very seriously indeed and it forms an integral part of the restaurant's day-to-day life.
The Directors of the restaurant are fanatical wine-lovers and are very proud of the restaurant's wine list which truly is one of the very best in the UK.

From start to finish Chez Bruce offer a welcoming, comfortable yet high end dining experience.
Wonderful friendly and professional staff, superb food and excellent wine selection.
Cannot recommend highly enough.
Loved everything about our dining experience. Such a wonderful birthday treat.
I had dinner at Chez Bruz on Tuesday night with a friend of mine.
The atmosphere was cosy and the room had nice Christmas decorations.
The waiter brought some different types of bread and some butter.
I tried as slice of the sourdough option, and found it to be ok, but nothing amazing.
The butter was very cold and then hard to spread. The taste was similar to any industry standard butter.
We ordered a carafe of red wine, which was pretty good and worth the price.
We both had one starter and one main dish.
I found the food slightly “old fashioned”: too rich and buttery, and I was unable to distinguish between any of the ingredients.
Everything was disguised by a fatty and buttery taste.
The service was spotless and the waiters very nice and friendly.
I didn’t find the restaurant to meet my expectations !You can find much better in London at that price!
Very much enjoyed it. The only constructive observation was that initially the staff rushed us to order and get through the meal. Initially l thought they wanted the table for 9.15 (we booked and arrived on time for 7.15) but this was not the case. Once we asked them no to rush usit was much more pleasant. Also there we no 2nd sittings that night. Looking forward to an excuse to go again.
Food amazing as always but service v poor
Chez Bruce never ceases to delight you. The food was of impeccable quality, the portions were generous for a Michelin star and the waiters made everything possible to make it easy for my 6 year old. We look forward to visiting soon again
A really lovely lunch / afternoon here - the cheese board is amazing as was all the food and the staff paired the wine perfectly - Thankyou so much
Overall excellent. I enjoyed my first course very much. I was slightly disappointed by the cote de boeuf as it was overdone though we asked for medium and the wait between first and second course was too long in my opinion. It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
Our whole evening was outstanding
We are locals though even if we weren't, we'd travel to be here. This is our favourite place to dine - reasonably priced for the high quality and variety of both classic and inventive dishes on offer, charming and knowledgeable team and great wine list. What's not to love?!
Service was faultless, food perfectly cooked and seasoned, one very small point is would of liked more truffle flavour on starter, but still worthy of 5 stars, brilliant wine list, the cheese board is best I've seen.
Comfortable ambience though perhaps tables a little close (we had a noisy party beside us which made this particularly obvious), delicious food, attentive & helpful staff. Will definitely be returning.
Second time visiting Chez Bruce - wasnt disappointed. Great food - lovely warm atmosphere - fantastic service.
Absolutely superb. Cheese board to die for and superb relaxed service. Excellent
Birthday dinner - fabulous, as ever!
Very good food at a very reasonable price
Lovely for a special occasion. Delicious food and was very impressed with the service- attentive without hovering and v friendly to 2 tired and slightly scruffy new parents!
Favourite restaurant in London. Always outstanding
The food is still amazing. Service is great and very knowledgeable staff. No loud music so you can actually talk to each other. Yes it's expensive if you have cocktails, wine and coffees etc but it's worth it for a special occasion.
Outstanding food and service, Bruce himself came to say hello as it was my daughter’s birthday. Great place for celebrating.
The food and service were absolutely outstanding, could not fault a single thing
Fantastic restaurant serving some of the best food I have tasted. We went for the the tasting menu and were not disappointed! Highly recommended.
Had a great lunch with friends. Every course was classic and wonderful
Great service! Fabulous food.
Wonderful experience every time. Friendly welcome. Delicious, well presented food. Immaculate service. Lovely atmosphere. Great wine list. Recently visited and would recommend crispy fish cakes, belly pork and hot chocolate pudding.
Not pretentious in any way and they don’t mind taking photos for you.
Had a lovely dinner here with family. Notified the restaurant it was a special occasion and they gave us a great table by the window. The food was excellent and a reasonable price for Michelin star. Would definitely recommend for a special meal!
I have been her many times but not sure it is quite as good any more. The main courses were superb - shared the beef which was beautifully cooked and presented. Fishcake starter very good but lobster ravioli while very tasty was poorly presented as one big ravioli with little grace. Desserts were ok but not amazing.
Amazing as always. Food and Service top notch. A local gem in Wandsworth.
Saturday’s dinner was just perfect, as always. Great service, delicious food and very nice ambiance
Went here for my wife's 40th birthday. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Menu had something for everyone. We all enjoyed our meals, I had the Venison and it was cooked to perfection. The sommelier provided us with an excellent bottle of red. For dessert, the cheese board is to die for. Un-requested, the staff came to our table with a Birthday dessert for my wife - which was a lovely touch.
Simply delicious - hadn’t been for years - will be back again very soon
Just fantastic service from start to finish. Food wasn’t too bad either!
Fabulous lunch menu !!
Birthday treat and looked after like royalty... Even Bruce popped over to give birthday wishes !! Nice man !! The wine list is amazing too !!
Definitely worth a visit !!
Super - really good I loved it. It’s situated about 200 metres from Wandsworth Common Southern Region station which is in turn one stop from Clapham Junction.
On a Tuesday lunchtime it was about three quarters full which for out of central London is pretty good.
The decor is plain, with plenty of room between tables and NO BLOODY MUSIC THANK GOD! They coped well with my changing the booking from six to five and then a no show so four of us.
They offer a three course meal with about five choices per course but a bit light on veggie options not that I care. The set meal is about £38 a head and with two bottles of wine plus aperitifs and digestives plus coffee ended up at about £80 a head. An absolute steal at the price.
I’m not going to tell you what we ate, the menu is on the web site. They did though offer as an amuse bouche Parmesan biscuits. Absolutely marvellous. “Can I have the recipe, I asked?” And a little card with details promptly arrived. So if you will excuse me I will finish here, I have the ingredients and am going to make a batch now.
Went to Chez Bruce for a celebratory lunch with friends having wanted to go for a while. Was not disappointed- everything was great, in particular the service and the extra dessert we received as the waiter had somehow worked out we were celebrating! Excellent value Sunday lunch too!
Booked for a birthday lunch celebration and it didn’t disappoint. Food was outstanding and service was excellent. With the added touch of a slice of birthday cake brought over with desert was a lovely surprise.
fantastic food and atmosphere . Always a special treat
It’s Chez Bruce ! What more can I say? If u haven’t been yet why not ? Especially if you’re a south Londoner
A delicious meal with helpful and discreet service. A very special occasional night out.
Amazing food and lovely service. Great seasonal menu.
