The Dairy Bar & Bistro
Fabulous birthday dinner here. Wonderful food, wine and service.
I tried the tasting menu. Overall the food was good but did not have a coherant story. Too much bread and the chicken liver mouse was rather bland. The lamb was underseasoned. The service was rather poor. I was the first to walk in for lunch service. I had feeling that one of the servers was patronising me throughout the lunch service. And I did not eat the £5 cheese supplement but I was charged for this. Poor experience, will not recommend.
Love this restaurant and the Sunday menu is incredible value.
Excellent food again. The lamb was particularly good. My only complaint about The Dairy is that the wines are pretty expensive in general.
Great evening, lovely food and wine, at a reasonable price for a tasting menu.
Only minor issue was the drinks pairings being introduced on two occasions where our party was not complete at the table (as they were using the bathroom), meaning two of the party missed out on interesting information.
Hardly a night-spoiler though and we will definitely be back!
A delicious and interesting menu, with helpful staff, made our lunch at The Dairy a real treat. Thank you to the team there!
My fist time for brunch. A very original menu, from which we had the pork cheeks with potatoes, egg and greens and it was excellent.
I didn't understand half of the menu, not sure what I ate, but it was one of the best meals I ever had :)
It's a very original menu and I like their whole food philosophy, but given the wording of the food descriptions, we had to ask for explanations of quite a lot of it. We may be dummies, but we are customers!
I’ve been to the dairy before but this was a first time for Sunday lunch. As usual it was excellent. Food is always top quality and the staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. For the level of food I found it great value too. I definitely recommend the Dairy!
If you love food you must try the Diary. Elegantly prepared food that tastes sublime. Also their gluten free bread is delicious (words I thought I would never say ever!). My good to foodie heaven when foodie friends are in town.
We had the tasting menu and everything was delicious and beautifully presented. The service was exceptionally good, all the waiters were very attentive, smiling and pleasant.
Would highly recommend The Dairy!
A nice venue and good staff. Unfortunately the food wasn't to my taste and the menu was quite restrictive. There was a lot of cheese and cream in most dishes and I had to send the monkfish back because it was incredibly salty.
Food and service was fantastic. The only slight downside was the drunk lady at the table next to us who kept spilling and breaking glasses
We absolutely loved our dinner, the food was exceptional and the restaurant had a great relaxed atmosphere!
Amazing food. Really adventurous choices, great local beer and a relaxed but buzzing atmosphere - Even on a Tuesday. I'd definitely go back.
The service was bang on and so was the food. they looked after the needs of my pregnant wife and I extremely well.
Food was amazing. The beef was sublime, but the roasted cabbage stole the show, which is something I never thought I would say as avid meat eater
Lovely Mother’s Day Meal, amazing food and great service. Good value for money!
Phenomenal food and service, always a joy to dine at the Dairy!
Delicious, inventive, perfectly cooked food in small portions, but enough. Attentive staff (though keen on the upsell). Bit noisy, so had to raise voice to speak (was a Saturday night though!), overall a really good restaurant.
Food is good but a Turkish egg brunch is one poached egg and carrots and veg. Very good but who serves one egg? Even in a normal breakfast two is the norm much less a significantly priced brunch dish. Disappointing!
Service was very slow but on the whole polite and trendy and good quality. Portion sizes guys!
We both had the braised beef cheek & crispy potatoes - delicious! The coffee was also 10/10
Great Mother’s Day brunch, fantastic tasty food and lovely friendly service.
Best local foodie spot in Streatham Hill!
Great atmosphere and food! Friendly staff.
The food was perfectly executed with impeccable timing.
Fresh produce, ingenuity, creativity is what's in your plate!
Will most definitely be back for more.
My fourth or fifth visit here so that should tell you how much I like it. Food as delicious as always, vibe still cosy and relaxed, service still friendly.
It was good but not blow your mind spectacular. The service however, was some of the best I have had in London.
This place is a bar and bistro with the prices of a Michellin starred restaurant. I thought it a right rip-off. And on top of this to add insult to injury the portions were SO small we were still hungry at the end. I did not like the pureed food which I thought had no texture and was like baby food. The wine price was astronomical. As was the whole meal particularly the pollock which is a cheap fish. I honestly would never go near this place again.
Absolutely fantastic lunch. Such great value for quality of food
Great place for Paddy’s Day Sunday lunch. Always great food and drink and an Irish twist to everything on the day!
Inconsistency across the courses, although overall a good experience. St. Patrick’s Day set menu, so that may have been the reason. Would go back to try à la carte.
I have to say that it was the worse place we have had brunch in a long time and we eat out a lot. I had the Jerusalam Artichoke which was so hard it was inedible, it was also very unseasoned. The cavelo Nero - was not present - it was substitued with cabbage - not the same.
Unfortunately my earl grey tea was served as green tea - twice. The waitress wasn’t exactly friend and with no thank you’s and please - not sure where she left her manners that morning.
I have been to the dairy for dinner before and it was lovely - so hence the brunch try. Worse decision and I’m afraid would never go back. Such a shame! It felt like it was trying hard to compete - but was massively falling short in every way! Hopefully it was just a bad chef that day and not their regular kitchen staff!
Great local restaurant. Good food and great service
Lovely plates meant for sharing but that may prove tricky if you have differing dietary requirements. So dishes were standout, the monkfish, others I wouldn’t reorder (the garlic mash) but on the whole tasty food, lovely presentation and helpful and humble staff. Fab gelato down the road if you don’t much fancy the stout flavour option on the menu!
Flavour and detail to food is very impressive . Slow service for a busy Friday night with lots of tables of 2 and one large table . We Had the tasting menu which was enjoyable but disappointed with service and time it took for the mains to arrive after waiting 30 mins between courses for a tasting menu this was very frustrating . Unfortunately my girlfriend had a problem with her pre dessert finding plastic from a piping bag end which was very off putting and very un professional lazy and unexpected from a classy team striving for a star . Will give it another go as have friends in the industry who love it but very disappointed with first vist !
First time we’ve been, and we thought it was great. Imaginative dishes really well executed, some interesting wines and drinks, relaxed vibe. Highly recommended.
Fantastic experience. Loved it and would go back again in a heart beat
Amazing food in a cozy and informal setting. Loved it
Food not as good as expected, had quail that was very odd, totally undercooked - lukewarm and bloody - and cooked wrapped in some kind of cabbage leaf so the skin was flabby and moist. Not nice. Service was friendly but slow, we ordered a second bottle of red wine during dinner which never came. Finally the waitress asked if we had received it yet when our plates were empty, we said no - she went to check on it and said it was being chilled (?!) and if we still wanted it - of course we didn’t by that point. Not living up to the hype for me.
Innovative cooking and attentive knowledgeable staff. A restaurant with a good vibe, we would definitely come again and recommend to friends.
Went for brunch at The dairy. The food was great but was very much on the small side -1 slice of a small loaf of bread with some salmon and bit sliced and a boiled egg. Nowhere near enough.
Service was efficient, perhaps too efficient. It felt rather impersonal and a little begrudging.
Overall I’ll recommend but not on an empty tummy.
