Lovely cosy, warm and relaxed environment. Really friendly and helpful staff, who explained how it all worked to us newbies. Delicious food. Can’t fault it. Will def go back. The Sunday sharing fish roast dinner was a great idea and 100% delicious. Better value per head I think than a normal pub roast dinner, which really costs the same in the end. My only regret is that we couldn’t finish it all. Loved it. Good for families too.

We enjoyed as we have on previous occasions beautifully fresh oysters and a selection of small plates, together with a very respectable house white. Service was very pleasant and efficient, we didn’t feel rushed. Plan to return in the future. Thanks!

Food was good, mushy peas unusual but tastes great. Staff friendly and very helpful.
But it was a bit cold in there.
I will definitely visit again with family and friends.
Thank you.

We had a really good evening at Moxons next door. Its a really good option for seafood lovers, as the dishes are tasty yet un-fussy, allowing you to really enjoy the taste of the fish. In addition to this the service was excellent, particularity as our waiter offered to fillet the fish at the table which was much appreciated.

Very impressed that the waitress made notes of our wine choices from our last visit.
Still one of my favourite places to eat.

Back again to Moxons Next Door for our son's birthday - 5 of us ordered just off the small plates menu and everything was delicious as always. Service was also nivcely attentive and making sure we didn't under order (oysters) or over-order (chips!)

Amazing food, will go back for sure. We had the scallops and prawns to start which were melt in your mouth delicious. Then we shared a sea bass with roast potatoes and green beans. Then we had the cheese to finish which was amazing.

The staff here are delightful and unobtrusive and knowledgeable. The design is pleasing. The food is the best in East Dulwich. The tables are rather close together so it is hard if you have a loud person nearby. We need a protocol for inviting loud diners to quieten down, as they do in France! I will be back soon.

We had 5 out of the 7 small plates on offer and thought they were all delicious. Not sure how often they change the menu, but it would be nice to have a few more to choose from in addition to the fish of the day. Very good service and while the food is a bit pricey, I would say good quality so value for money.

We love this neighbourhood gem which is conveniently located a stone’s throw from where we live. Highlights were the smoked mackerel pâté, the stone bass sashimi with lime and coconut cream and the scallops but if I’m honest it was all delicious. We washed it all down with a couple of glasses of the white burgundy which is on tap and all in all had a delicious and throughly enjoyable lunch!

The tables are too close together, you couldn't have a private conversation. The food was great, but I really didn't feel comfortable with two couples on either side so close that you couldn't have a conversation without feeling listened to.

We had a delicious luncheon here for three ladies. Service was excellent and the quality of the fish and chip special(brill fillet in batter) was superb. I would recommend popping in here for a bite of lunch when shopping on Lordship Lane.

Fantastic as ever. This is our 4th or 5th trip and we absolutely love Next Door. The changing seasonal menu always has such good variety and the market menu of fish is fabulous. The wine is equally as good. Thank you for having us, and we’ll see you soon no doubt. Conor

Fabulous fresh fish beautifully cooked in the oven. Portions normally large, for 2 people+ which is a problem if you're eating alone, as the "small plates", while individually delicious, don't amount to a meal. Since I last visited, the side order menu has changed, not for the better in my opinion. Pommes de terre dauphinoises have replaced boiled potatoes, and broccoli is no longer on the menu, replaced with salads. Disappointing. The desserts are delicious. They'd run out of decaf coffee, and for reasons I couldn't understand were unable to serve a macchiato. Odd. But overall, this is highly recommended if you like fish.
