Welcome to Park’s Edge Bar & Kitchen, a modern British independent neighbourhood restaurant overlooking Herne Hill’s Brockwell Park.

Our team of travel-obsessed chefs are not afraid to borrow from international cuisines, bringing new flavour twists to British classic and contemporary dishes. What’s not to love about our Sloe-Gin Cured Salmon with Wasabi Mayonnaise -with the botanicals of British gin to flavour our sustainably sourced salmon? Or our homemade Tennessee Whisky Ketchup to accompany Skin-On chips with our Park’s Edge Dirty Burger?

We support local and regional suppliers and as our menus change weekly, we work hard to pair dishes with our eclectic wine selection and locally sourced craft beers.

We welcome reservations so please call us if the time you want is not available.

We look forward to welcoming you in!

Initially we were unsure what to expect given its decor. However, we were pleasantly surprised by the food and would definitely go back again. Another great local eatery around Herne Hill / Brockwell Park area.

Had a lovely evening at this little gem of a place. The food was fantastic, especially the crab mac & cheese and I'm not usually one to go for, what is essentially, pasta and cheese sauce. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, however it took a while to get our first drinks and to be offered water. Overall, well worth a visit!

I'm tempted to describer this restaurant as a 'hidden gem' as, despite being a local, I hadn't realised it had opened recently, however, I really have no excuse for my ignorance as the location is great - just on the edge of Brockwell park and around the corner from Herne Hill station and Half Moon Lane.

I had the duck, which was cooked perfectly, and some of the small plates, which were interesting. Really good value for money too.

Was excited about trying Parks Edge as the menu looked really promising and had heard good things. I was slightly underwhelmed by the dishes I ordered (onion and artichoke tart and duck waffle), they lacked a ‘wow’ factor which I was expecting from the description and price, but overall had a lovely time and enjoyed other tasters I had from friends meals - the salted honey butter was great!

We had the pleasure of dining at Park’s Edge last week and what a treat it was. The food by Tom Spinks and Matthew Carrizales was fresh, innovative and playful, and extremely tasty. It is a seasonal, locally-sourced menu and we sampled the homemade brown soda bread & salted honey butter, the duck & waffle, the grilled jerk squid, and the tofu kimchi stew to start, followed by the red gurnard, the duck breast, and the roasted cauliflower gnocchi. To round it off we somehow had room to enjoy some delicious desserts and chocolate truffles too.

The restaurant overlooks Brockwell Park and is a fantastic addition to what is a growing foodie scene in Herne Hill. The décor cleverly creates a cosy and intimate feel, whilst retaining a sense of elegance (including a feature wall by rising interiors star, Kit Miles).

In a two week period where we dined at Petrus, Fera, and Opso, we cannot sing the praises of Park’s Edge enough – not only in terms of the menu but also the team behind it all, who are clearly extremely passionate about food and making each meal memorable and special. We will certainly be returning very soon and have already spread the word to friends and family who are keen to experience it for themselves.

Relatively new restaurant to Herne Hill.
The space is quite small but they have avoided cramming in too many tables so our table of 6 for Easter Saturday lunch felt very comfortable.
Only the set menu was available for lunch. The choice therefore was limited. However, We all enjoyed our starters. I had lamb and kimchi. The smoked salmon was a hit with the others. I then had Duck and Waffle. The duck was perfect. The veggie burger was less successful apparently.
Desserts were great. Overall, the quality of the food was very good and I will go back to try the evening a la carte menu.

The food was excellent and the decor is lovely and the service was great. But, I was excited at the prospect of a new relaxed neighbourhood restaurant, but I feel with the type of menu on offer it isn't really that. It is a nice place for dinner for a special occasion, but not somewhere I would just pop to for dinner on a regular basis, which is a shame, that's what is needed in this area, not somewhere trying to offer a find dining type experience with a very very small menu. I would love a few decent well priced regular dishes then a few 'finer' options. Somewhere you could go to for a little treat date night or out with the girls for a catch up, nice and relaxed, I think its trying too hard to be something more at the moment.

Service a tad erratic to begin with. We were told we couldn't have menus until another table had finished with them. Cocktail order taken but had to remind staff that we didn't have the drinks. (Not charged for). Have to say, the cocktails were delicious. The food however, was simply amazing. I had a tofu started and never knew tofu could be sublime. It was. Yes, I did have the grapefruit, black pepper desert and it was delicious. Definitely recommend for the eating experience.

It was very enjoyable. We went with friends and looking at the outside of the restaurant we were really not sure about it as this was our first visit. But we went in and we were so glad we did because food was delicious and we somehow managed all three courses. Actually food is some of the best I have ever tasted around here. Would advise going for a drink first as cocktails were good too and there is a small bar area. We will definitley be back and not sure my picture does putting or the espresso martini justice but both were excellent.

Parks Edge is a real neighbourhood gem. The room is comfortable, the staff were very helpful and friendly and the food was delicious. Unexpectedly imaginative modern British food. Starters included a delicious crab risotto and a lovely crispy lamb neck with kimchi. Mains continued the excellent start with a lovely sea bream, a roasted cauliflower dish and excellent duck with great and confit leg. The banana with salted caramel and popcorn was A perfect ending. We will be returning soon!

Two visits in two days, both were excellent. Dinner on Saturday night was relaxed, served quickly and courteously. I had two starters, crab risotto and pheasant breast, both were packed with flavour, perfectly cooked, and with a modern twist that took them above the ordinary. Partner loved his lamb starter and a rare beef bavette main, and I persuaded him to donate me a delicious Mac n' cheese croquette. Really interesting combinations of flavours and textures. Surprisingly good house wine and excellent Canopy beer (they should consider getting it on draft). Returned the following day for Sunday lunch, which was thoughtfully executed with great veg options (truffled cauliflower cheese!). Seating for a range of group sizes; a large group arrived and were seated and served with no fuss. We will definitely be back for more.

To be honest we were a bit disappointed. The place is nice, the cocktails were good, but the vegetarian starter was a gloopy mess of couscous and what seemed to be peanut butter. M&S can do better. The meat starter and both mains were fine, but the prices were way over what a good neighbourhood restaurant ought to be charging, particularly for veggie food (14 quid for a bit of roast root veg?!). Fingers crossed they review their veggie menu and their pricing, because it has the makings of a really great place, but as it stands we won’t give it many more chances.

What a hidden gem! Food as good as you will eat in some Michelin starred restaurants for a fraction of the price. Cocktails are lovely, well thought out wine list, we were spoilt for choice when picking but the real standout dish was the pork. It was heaven on a plate! Highly recommended.

The work coming from this two-or-three-chef team has such a great degree of finesse that it can compete with any fine dining establishment that boast a bigger kitchen operation. Whoever creates the menus here not only have a strong foundation in technical cooking skills, they understand seasonal produce and how to utilise all parts of an ingredient. For example, instead of food wasting parsnip skins, they transform them into crunchy crumbs for a chocolate dessert. I am so pleased to have discovered this perfect eatery and I will be watching these chefs' progress.

Good service but food was lacklustre sadly. Ordered fish and it wasn’t cooked properly but same piece of food was re cooked and then was edible. Quite hard to not cook fish properly. Dessert was also disappointing. Food missing the mark somewhat and over priced for what was delivered.

This is my second visit, I love the decor and the location, the service is very friendly and attentive, the man who I believe is the manager is always cheerful and cracking little jokes, he's very welcoming. I am vegetarian and I had the polenta cake which was cleverly shaped like a piece of salmon ( on a previous visit I had a slice of vegan roast which was made to look like a slice of meat, also very clever). I like that so much thought and effort is put into the vegetarian options and this is definitely a big draw for me. It is not cheap but you get what you pay for and for special occasions this would be one of my new favourite destinations in the area. The one small niggle my partner had was that the music playing was dance/rap something like that and seemed at odds with the atmosphere they are trying to create here, especially being a week before Christmas. Did not spoil a lovely evening though and we will definitely be back!
