    Super atmosphere and attentive service The four of us ordered one of each dish on the menu to share between us (7 dishes) They are not too large so that worked out fine Everything was beautifully cooked, the Tuna Tartare was exceptional Will be back, been a few times already and every meal was a delight.

    The best dining experience I have had in a long time. Fabulous setting and vibe. We ate the most wonderful food without exception. Bread and hummus, mushroom croquette, steak, iberico pork and the most amazing sweet and sour cauliflower. Desserts of blood orange and chocolate and a plate of cheese rounded off the meal beautifully. Wine was delicious. Service attentive, charming and not intrusive. A completely perfect evening.

    The food was delicious but it was a bit chilly as the eating area is quite exposed to the wind (or it was yesterday!) but heaters and blankets are provided.

    Absolutely blown away by this atmospheric hidden gem. Food quality was top drawer, staff were friendly and efficient, and the overall experience satisfying and smile-inducing. What started as a search for somewhere with decent Vegan options turned into a great time for all, Vegan and Carnivore alike. Highly recommended.

    Fantastic food and ambiance as ever. Staff were absolutely lovely and very professional. However, gave 4* in this area as when I have visited previously (been a number of times), the staff always spoke about the food/drinks and gave some enthusiastic, knowledgeable background information on where it comes from, what the ingredients are etc., and seemed to be genuinely engaged in the overall process. It's a small touch but when buying this sort of fresh food in such a great setting it always elevated the experience to another level and set Turnips apart from other restaurants. Overall, lovely as ever though and thank you so much for the Birthday Plate for my mum - she really appreciated it!

    Great cooking, as expected. Beetroot tartare was a revelation. as was the blood orange themed dessert. However, we were a little disappointed to be told that the tasting menu was not available. Maybe late Saturday afternoon is not the best time to visit, when staff were setting up for the dinner service.

    I’ve been to Turnips for dinner recently and had the tasting menu which was outstanding . I came back for a business lunch and certainly was a different experience - there were limited vegan options so was limited to bread, hummus and cauliflower . The food this time around was average with the usual high costs - so a little disappointing this time around .

    We really enjoyed our lunch at Turnips, it was nice to be able to eat amongst the hustle and bustle of the market and the produce, but still have enough space so we didn't feel cramped. It was a wet and miserable day so we were delighted to see there were plenty of heaters dotted around the restaurant. The food and wine was really delicious and the service was fantastic. The only thing I would change is the sourdough, whilst it was tasty I think it would have been better if not toasted. (might just be a personal preference). Will definitely be back.

    A fantastic meal with attentive, professional service. Everything we had was perfectly cooked, served and very tasty. We ordered all of the small plates between four of us, plus an extra cauliflower because that was our favourite. English sparkling wine was a treat too! Great, if unusual location under the London Bridge arches at Borough Market, provides a rather eclectic ambiance. With very good heaters and lovely sheepskins for the chairs, it was cosy even in December.
