    A few glitches with the service (nothing major) but staff were pleasent and helpful. Food was very nice (if not terribly memorable) - all in all, likely we'll be back.

    The food was OK, very small portions, We were offered bread an olives and then charged £4 for bread and £4 for olives, which I think is ridiculous. We waited a while for our bill to be given, then ages to actually pay. staff were very friendly though.

    This is "casual fine dining" at its best. Beautiful, tasty, interesting food, sourced mainly in Cornwall, wonderful wine list to complement the food, excellent service, casual and relaxed atmoshere, smart place but also child friendly. A perfect place for dinner for two or with friends, a family lunch or any celebration. We have taken family here, done Mothers Day lunch and recommended to friends and none have been disappointed. I particularly love the fish dishes but have also been impressed by beautifully cooked lamb, steak and innovative flavours. The sorbets and ice creams are a real hit too!

    We visited with friends and had a lovely, enjoyable meal. Food was great, as was the service. Only comment would be that it would be good to have a few more mains veggie options, for people who don't want to eat pasta!

    Cornish gives you only one piece of the equation at work in the kitchen. As we learned from our very knowledgeable and helpful waitress, the chef hails from South Africa with heritage in both India and Fiji, and his aromatic dishes reflect both his love of all things Cornwall and his understanding of well-balanced spices. Nothing we had was "spicy" per se (I was warned the green harissa had a "kick," which I found it to be rather a gentle, beguiling one) , but everything was intriguingly aromatic. We are rather discerning foodies and this place passed muster. A real find! Definitely one to recommend.

    Food was excellent: cannon of lamb beautifully cooked, tuna steak likewise. Interesting flavour combinations too - "tiger sauce" is a fiery, fruity accompaniment to steak, and the green harissa served with the tuna had a good kick of heat and bags of coriander. Service was attentive, ambience good, wine more expensive than I would have expected but probably won't break the bank. Thanks for an enjoyable meal

    Great food and interesting to hear how food is sourced and even the belgian beer is from a friend of the family. Would recommend. It was a little quiet when we arrived so for a bit of atmosphere better to be seated in the front part of the restaurant.

    Great service but food was below average. Lamb was over cooked and all we could taste as cumin and the risotto which would have been lovely, was so salty it was difficult to eat!

    Nice restaurant with all the food excellent except for the broccoli which came with a lot of tough stem and water in the bottom of the dish. This was the best steak either of us have had for a long time - cooked exactly right (i medium, 1 med-rare) and so tasty. Starters were also excellent as was the dessert. Best overall food we have had for a long time. The restaurant is nice with good service and very nice staff, main drawback was the chairs were very hard (they do have softer ones, but they looked a bit low) - strongly recommend you get some cushions for the wooden chairs!

    Food at lunchtime was brilliant as usual and service was excellent. But.......this place is loved by mothers with young babies and this makes it difficult to have quiet conversations! There is a back room, which is not as nice as the front and lacks atmosphere. Probably not returning.

    Kitchen had run out of several dishes on the short menu by 8pm, but the food we were served was lovely. The space at the back was very noisy (poor acoustics) so would recommend asking to sit at the front if you want to be able to hold a conversation when dining.

    Had an early evening meal here last night before a show at the Clapham Grand. We arrived just before 7pm, so went with the special lunch/early evening menu of two courses for £9.95 or three for £11.95 I had the Smoked Coley with horseradish cream and rocket to start which was very tasty. Wife had a butternut squash soup which lacked any intensity of flavour, but was OK We both went for the Belly Pork for main course, which was tasty and well presented, but lacked any accompanying carbohydrate. Fortunately, I had checked when ordering and had ordered a side of chunky chips which were piping hot and very enjoyable (one bowl is enough to share between two). Wife had deconstructed cheesecake for pudding and I went for the rice pudding, which was too dry and lacked any creaminess. Drinks were overpriced at almost £7 for a glass of wine and £4 for a small lager. All in all, pleasant enough, but over priced

    Went here for a Sunday lunch with my girlfriend. Good atmosphere and attentive waiting staff. The only criticism I had was the fact that it was a little overpriced. Roast beef was very fatty and was £16. Good flavour and nice desserts. Would definitely give it another try.

    We have been to the Cornish Tiger a number of times now and it does not disappoint. The food is excellent and the ingredients are fresh and sourced in Cornwall. The only critism I would give is that the yorkshire pudding was too dry and needed a lot of gravey to soften it up. However, we had a great all round experience and we will definitely be back.

    Tucked away off the main street and general Clapham civilisation it seems, is this lovely restaurant with very friendly staff. It was a bit empty when we went in but it was quite early, but it never quite was atmospheric in any description. The food was ok but nothing to write home about. I probably would pop in if i was in the neighbourhood again, but on the other hand it wasnt special enough to want to drag me away from trying the several others within a two mile-radius.

    Excellent lunch. The food was very good and I could have easily have had any of the dishes on the menu. They have managed to get the portions just right and the presentation was beautiful. There were four of us with a toddler and not only were the staff extremely helpful and efficient, they were really friendly and accommodating to a little one running around the place (they even had books for him to read). All of us couldn't fault the food and for me, the highlight was the sea bass with saffron Risotto. A definite must. All in all, it was a great experience and we will definitely be returning.

    Booked a table for 5 ppl but had some last minute joiners - the staff didn't sweat it and instead got us a bigger table for 10, without fuss. Food was absolutely delicious. Most of us had the beef (huge portions, great veg, succulent meat - incredible gravy!) but some had chicken and also said was yummy! Coffee good. We had a baby and little one with us and they were given smaller portions which they gobbled up. Can't wait to come back again for the weekday menu, plus I've heard that the prosseco Tuesdays are another hit night! HIGHLY Recommend

    Went here for a lovely Christmas dinner with a friend. A real gem of a find in Battersea, Clapham junction way. A short walk up from Clapham Junction station, the food was excellent and varied. A great selection of high quality GB style dishes including game, vegetable wellington etc. We both had a lovely dinner, in beautiful surroundings. The staff were attentive and friendly. The value for money for the quality of food I believe was excellent. Highly recommended!

    A plesant experience with open, amicable staff - we were made to feel welcome on a quiet Sunday. The menu is undeniably interesting, with the lamb a highlight, but it perhaps tries to be too far in the fine dining Venn circle and narrowly fails to deliver.
