Review on Edwins
Just steps away from Borough tube station, tucked away above The Trinity pub, Edwins is a gem of a neighbourhood restaurant that opened its doors in March 2014. The restaurant takes its name from publican Edwin Brady, who ran the Victorian Hole in the Wall public house, famous for its museum containing a very large collection of stuffed animals, skeletons and other curiosities until it was closed down in 1901, after a complaint about obscene adverts. In tones of blue, the dining room is a cosy affair with quirky touches of décor, featuring an eclectic mix of old antiques displayed on shelves and wooden cabinets and retro light fittings.
Taking the helm of the kitchen is a former Riding House Café and Village East chef Selim Massouf, who presents a menu of modern European and British dishes using fresh seasonal produce. To start you could choose from their selection of small plates such as lobster ravioli or ox cheek pudding. Follow on with wild venison, celeriac rosti, shallot puree and juniper sauce or from the sea there's mackerel tomato fondue and blood orange salad. Elsewhere on the menu you might see chocolate fondant with honeycomb ice cream or maybe a pear and almond tart.
The concise wine list offer good value and there's also a well-crafted cocktail menu.
