Kudu is a friendly neighbourhood restaurant in the heart of Peckham.
Our menu is shaped by the seasons, creative plates that combine the very best produce with a splash of imagination to give familiar dishes a playful twist.
Our South African roots inspire our food - whether that's slow cooking in a potjie pot over hot coals, or baking our delicious Kudu bread. ​Sourced as much as possible from local suppliers, we celebrate hunters & foragers and gather what we can from our own herb garden and vegetable plot.
​Kudu is a couple team- Amy Corbin & Patrick Williams - brought together by our love of good food and a closely held dream to create a special place where we can share our favourite dishes with friends, family and neighbours.
Come say hi!

Kudu never fails to impress. I hadn’t visited for a few months and decided to go for the an all vegetarian dinner - although I’m no vegetarian myself. It was a real feast. Explosion of tastes and flavours. Every single thing we had was worth the trip to Peckham. And the service is, as always, exceptional.

Fantastic creative and inspiring food menu, who knew carrots could taste that good!!
The best seat in the house is at the bar, you get to see all the food being cooked and enjoy some friendly conversation with the chefs.

C'était une très belle découverte culinaire, des associations de goûts très inattendues et exceptionnelles. Les mets sont originaux et la possibilité de partage entre les convives rend le dinner très convivial. Le service était très sympathique. Nous avons passé un très bon moments. Flicitations

Great food and ambiance but slightly overpriced considering the location.

Really enjoyed our first visit to Kudu.
The atmosphere was friendly and bouncing on a Saturday night and the quality of the food was superb - fresh and delicious combinations.
I would probably disagree with the categorisation of small and medium plates as I thought both were roughly the same - we were surprised at how much food was in the small plates but then a little deflated with the size of the medium plates. That said, no quibble with presentation or quality.
Suggest they just categorise all as "plates" ;)
Overall - good value for inventive food - we will be back!

Great atmosphere, lovely attentive staff and amazing food. The waiter recommended the delicious bread with dip to us which you must try. Nice garden in the back too which they let us have a coffee and after dinner drink at before settling the bill. Only tiny criticism is they don't do any off menu cocktails - the cocktails they offer are superb but it would have been nice to get an espresso martini.

A great find, very professionally designed restaurant in ever trendy Peckham. A fun eve with friends, shortish menu of sharing plates, all of which were well cooked and delicious. Lovely cocktails and a short wine list which offered reasonable value of standards. Service was good, v attentive but not overly so. Menu was v v v good for a Coeliac in our party. Will return for dinner with my wife.

Delicious food, beautiful wine and faultless service. A fabulous place to spend a date night. We sat outside in the well curated garden dining area and it felt like we were on holiday and definitely not in Peckham!
Really well thought out food pairings - I could particularly recommend the Kudu bread, the lamb and the plaice. Also such as sultry melted chocolate ganache for dessert. South African wine was rich and tasty too.
Thanks Kudu.
