The Light House continues to be the undisputed family favourite restaurant in the area and is first choice to celebrate any occasion. Children are excellently accommodated; the menu always presents a difficult choice with so many delicious options; the wine list is varied but not daunting, suggesting careful selection rather than over-stocking (risking poor storage), and is very reasonably priced....

Ate on a Monday night at 8.45 and was pleasantly surprised how busy the restaurant was and what a good atmosphere it had. Food was delicious and service excellent!

We normally go for a meal in the summer so it was interesting to see how seasonal the menu is, I was concerned at first as everything seemed super meaty and rich but it was all divine as usual! Every mouthful was a treat and we thoroughly enjoyed it - a great ham hock hash to start followed by haddock... More

A group of 5 of us decided to pop in on the off chance of getting a table for dinner. Fortunately it is not too busy mid-week. The service was excellent and the food delicious. I went for the Schnitzel while the others went for Guinea Fowl, Pork and fish. The food was well presented and cooked. Lovely selection of... More

We have been there a few times and to be fair the last time we had a nice meal. However there weren't enough staff so the service was a bit patchy (drinks took 20 minutes to arrive) plus a few things were off the menu or were missing. I think it tries a bit too hard and sticking to the... More

Very average experience. Through a four course dinner the food varied from poor to only just acceptable. I raised a concern to be conveyed to the kitchen but did not receive a response. The atmosphere was dull. The service, at times, was very poor. I have eaten at this restaurant many times over the years and being very local have,... More

I went to the Light House on Saturday night with two friends. I had heard of the restaurant, but never seemed to either be in the area or have the time. Now that I've been I should have moved the earth to get there! What a find! Wonderful, local neighbourhood restaurant with excellent food. I was really impressed with the... More

I went here for my birthday and tried everyone's plates so I know that the food is delicious! I would recommend the pork tenderloin or the beef.

The quality of the food exceeds expectation in this neighbourhood restaurant. A bit off the beaten track, the choice and quality are excellent. The atmosphere is good - tables not packed in - and the service is friendly and helpful.

The Light House opened in 1999 to great critical acclaim and has gone from strength to strength ever since. Now well established as a friendly, neighbourhood restaurant with a modern, international menu and an inspiring selection of wines. The friendly, professional service contributes to its well deserved reputation as one on of the best places to eat in South West London. We now have air-conditioned dining too!
