We recently returned to Savoy Cabbage and enjoyed another memorable meal. The venue is lovely: bare brickwork juxtaposed against slick glass; high ceilings and a relaxed atmosphere. The tomato tart signature dish was, as always, perfect; mains of grilled cape salmon and venison also impressed,...More

I quite liked this place. It’s an interesting renovated space on split levels. We were seated upstairs, good for looking down over other diners, but bad for being next to the bar and Gents. Service was rather slow. I was gasping for a drink, but...More

The menu, which changes slightly each day, is actually much longer than it was in our earlier year,. likewise we have expanded the wine list quite considerably. Your warthog should not have been dry. We would happily have cooked you another portion if chef agreed...More
