Lupins Review

Lupins was opened in May 2017 by British chefs Lucy Pedder and Natasha Cooke. While Lupins, near Borough Market was a little hard to find – it was worth the search due to the quiet atmosphere and delightful food. My friend and I had an enjoyable rainy Saturday afternoon dining on British sharing small plates while sipping on wine. The perfect way to spend a Saturday in my opinion.

The restaurant recommends a couple of starters and four small plates to share. So we tried the olives and Sourdough with brown butter to start. Who knew brown butter was so good! I would have happily sat there and just kept eating bread and butter all day long… and I don’t even like butter on my bread!

We can certainly say you have to try the Cornish crab thermidor,  buratta with black figs, aged balsamic vinegar, grilled sardines with salmoriglio and fennel salad, bavette steak with creamed potato and bone marrow and the venison cappelletti with arrabbiata and coolea.

As the dishes came out, they all improved in terms of flavour and presentation. It was actually difficult  to choose a favourite dish. They were all so good. We finished off our wine, sharing a creme brulee. It was the perfect end to a delicous meal.

Lupins is open Monday to Saturday for lunch and dinner. Book a table now, if you’re in the mood for good British food at affordable prices.
