Grumbles, 35 Churton Street, Pimlico, London SW1V 2LT

Grumbles is one of the longest standing restaurants in Pimlico. Their strap line says it all: ‘In 1964 we started serving good bistro food at friendly prices and we are still doing so nearly half a century later.’

Inside the restaurant has touches of rustic charm, with intimate wooden booths and wooden wall panelling, accented by French street signs, portraits, and other traditional bistro style details. Decor aside, it is quite simply, the quality of the food that keeps customers coming back again and again. The menu includes a variety of delicious red meat and fish dishes, as well as tasty salads and pastas. Sample Moroccan lamb tagine with sweet potato, flaked almonds and raita or a Grumbles salad with broad beans, French beans and confit tomato with grilled chicken or halloumi and a mustard dressing. The steak is particularly popular, so too the French-style Foie Gras. Everything is freshly cooked to order, and nothing is too much trouble for the restaurant’s friendly and long-serving staff.

The wine list is also highly recommended by regular patrons, as it manages to have the right mix of affordable and high end wines, with every bottle chosen specifically for its delicious and full bodied taste.

Grumbles is popular with the pre-theatre crowd, looking for delicious eats on a budget: the early dinner set menu (served between 6pm and 7pm) costs just £10.75 for two courses and £13.25 for three courses.
