The White Onion is an excellent modern restaurant. We were made very welcome and the service was wonderful.

We really enjoyed our lunch, and will return in the New Year!

Highly recommend the cocktails!

The restaurant was well run and we felt quite safe. The background music was set at just the right level. The food was excellent but my wife’s steak was a little underdone. This was quickly rectified

We had a really enjoyable time at the White Onion. The lunch offer is very reasonable and everything we had was delicious. Service was friendly if a little slow. We didn’t mind, as we were looking for a lazy long lunch, but just something to be aware of if you happen to be in a rush. We would definitely return!

So good to be back at the White Onion after second lockdown. We really missed this local neighbourhood gem (though the takeaway and heat at home menu/service was a great weekly highlight over the enforced "takeaway only" times).

Super tasty, well-thought out menu and the service is great. Highly recommend the "popcorn broccoli" side; it's so addictive! And definitely recommended to be brave and go "off the beaten track" with your wine choice - Pedro really knows his stuff and chooses amazing flavours at surprisingly reasonable prices.

First opportunity we have to eat out post easing of lockdown and The White Onion is our top choice! It did not disappoint. We thought the chefs had time to fine tune their skills. Hard to choose between the dishes but excellent as usual.

This is an excellent restaurant. The food is freshly prepared and first class. Service is friendly and atmosphere relaxed. When you think of the pre-prepared rubbish you get at local gastro-pubs the value is outstanding

I must say I have been really looking forward to trying out this restaurant and I can say I was sadly disappointed. The food was ok, not great, which is what I was expecting. Based on the price there are many other places I would rather go to. Not sure if this is just for Sunday lunch Menu and I should give it another go for dinner... still deciding. The service was really good which definitely saved our overall review

The experience overall was great. My partner did think his cod (a fish that we eat a lot) was a bit too "fishy" when it's normally a more subtle white fish taste, so he struggled with the dish a bit. I tasted it myself and also thought it tasted a bit off. Other than that everything else was really nice and we would go there again for sure to try other dishes.

Unfortunately I was really disappointed by my experience at The White Onion. The menu simply wasn’t good enough. The gnocchi was extremely heavy and dense, the broccoli was greasy and the chocolate creme brûlée was a heavy chocolate mousse, not a brûlée with dry, heavy shortbread biscuits.
This restaurant was once a firm favourite in Wimbledon village but the standards just have dropped. Sadly I don’t think we’ll bother to return again as it’s simply not worth the money.
