About the restaurant
Michelin starred Frog by Adam Handling is a place to really submerge yourself in a theatrical show. You’re facing the kitchen, the chefs come to your table and you are able to really interact with every member of the team. Frog is luxury in an environment where you feel comfortable being whoever you are and where all elements in the restaurant are connected to offer a truly memorable experience.

The dishes are very emotional and they all mean something to Adam. Each and every one of the dishes has a story behind it, whether it’s a memory from Adam’s childhood or something that has inspired him or the team.

If you want a real fine dining experience book a table at the frog. Bring a healthy appetite as this tasting menu is not one that leaves you hungry. Also bring a willingness to sit back and enjoy the experience; it will take anywhere between 2 to 3 hours which is worth every minute. The food tastes are unique and memorable and the serious commitment to sustainability is something to be commended. We enjoyed every moment and every dish which is a first for us. We will definitely be back

About the restaurant
Trinity reopened in October 2015 with the same ethos, culture and team whilst recreating a new and refreshing backdrop - retaining its sophistication and remaining a restaurant of significance in Clapham.
An alfresco dining area accommodates 16 guests, the dining room seating 40 guests that now have a clear view into an open plan kitchen with banquette seating surrounded by the soft hues of jade green and dusty heather pink.
Staying true to his style of cookery, the new menu will focus on Adam’s interpretation of great classics in a relaxed and approachable setting.
The kitchen presents a four course a la carte menu for a set price of £70 for lunch and £120 for dinner. The wine list continues to offer great value with the Chef's Cellar List (just add VAT and corkage), increasing both our quantity and quality and a overall extension to the main wine list of up to 400 bins now on display in the feature wine cellar on the ground floor.

We celebrated a graduation with the lunch menu - it is an abbreviated version of the full tasting menu and was great. Each mouthful was incredible and the presentation was beautiful. service is great and wine pairing recommendations were rare and enjoyable.

About the restaurant
When you come to Opheem, you get an insight into the inner workings of my mind. We’re striving to push the boundaries with Indian flavours, but with cooking techniques from all over the world, some traditional, and some very modern. At Opheem, I’ll be using the same paints as I’ve always done, to create a very different picture, on a very, very different canvas. Why? Because to evolve and adapt is what makes us human, and cooking is what sets us apart from the animals.

An amazing evening for my husband’s birthday. There were lovely touches that did not go unnoticed. The food was excellent. We had the 5 course taster and there were the 5 courses plus many snacks beforehand and petit fours afterwards too. The food was amazing Aktaar Islam was in the kitchen when we visited and served at many tables but unfortunately not ours, which was unfortunate but his food and staff were fabulous

About the restaurant
Fergus Henderson’s original home of “Nose to Tail Eating” opened in a former smokehouse around the corner from Smithfield Market in 1994.

Celebrating the finest of indigenous British produce and making the most of what is seasonally best whilst applying straight forward cooking techniques, St. John is now celebrated as one of the 50 Best Restaurants in the World and in 2009 was awarded its first Michelin Star.

Nose to tail eating means that, where appropriate, every part of the animal should be put to good use in the kitchen and so along with Roast Beef and Lemon Sole, diners will find Rolled Pig’s Spleen, Kidneys and Ox Heart, Liver and Chitterlings as well as the Roast Bone Marrow & Parsley Salad, something of a ‘signature’ dish.
