About Cottons

Our food takes inspiration from the various influences of the Caribbean islands from Jamaica to Margarita with a little stop over at St Lucia
in what we refer to as ‘Nouvelle cuisine Caribbean’.

Fresh ingredients are sourced daily and our meats are
well seasoned and marinated for at least 48 hours.

Our superb scotch bonnet sauce is available on request for those
who would like their food a little spicier.

For those with allergies to various food ingredients, please ask your server
or refer to our menu description below for clarification.

I don’t usually go out to eat carribean food as it seems to never taste like it. But this time... the most amazing carribean food I’ve tasted. Such brilliant service. Would recommend to everyone. Only thing is the food takes quite long to come. Overall it was AMAZING!

I had heard of cottons through friends as a jerk chuck experience akin to what brixton used to serve up pre gentrification . I used to live in brixton for 8 yrs so I was excited to hear this. Me and my girlf ordered cocktails then the jerk meat platter. It was delicious with a combo of lamb, pork ribs and chicken wings in a lip tingljngly good jerk sauce. Also a generous portion of rice and peas to share and more jerk gravy to pour over that. Uuuuummm as a gravy fiend this was a delightful added bonus. I really enjoyed my missus found it a little to hot for her so I would say this place is for pro jerk chicken lover but I absolutely loved it!!!

Beautifully presented, really well flavoured Caribbean food, great ambience, vibrant restaurant (way bigger than it looks from the outside). Service was laid back and cocktails took a while to come but that was only a problem as we were short on time so recommend you take your time and enjoy it! And if you are a rum lover you will be in heaven at the bar!

Although had a mandatory valentines menu which we had to pick off , was a very enjoyable evening .. good food, server was efficient, polite and also had a good sense of humour.

The downside was they say tables so close together that when I tried to get out I was disturbing either party on my left/right .


As restaurant wasn't busy they could of separated us to avoid this.

Food and server was great.

its a little cosy and would say booking is essential. the rice n peas has a twist, different from other places. Cocktails.. are fantastic and sooo worth the money. with the fab music going in the background, we could have easily stayed there all evening, shame its so small.

If you like rum, proper rum, then you have to come here. Maybe kick off with one of their excellent run cocktails (surely a health drink with that much fresh fruit?) before seeing the night to bed sailing around the carribean through the bottom of your glass and the extensive rum menu they have. Always a taste adventure. And don't just bank on the rum. The food is worth writing home about too, with all the carribean favourites and more. Throw in such a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, knowledgeable bar staff and proffessional yet very amusing waiting staff and it all adds up to a fine, relaxed evening of food and drink that leaves you with that just-back-from-holiday feeling!

I have eaten at Cottons for many years now but have not been there in over a year. What a lovely surprise to see that the ambience and atmosphere there has not changed. The food was always good but on Saturday everything ordered was to perfection so very tasty and enjoyable including the cocktails. The staff is always attentive and helpful. Really good value for money.
