SquareMeal Review

Behind an incongruous Tudor-style façade, a narrow blue stairwell leads to a 40-cover dining room at this Borough High Street newcomer. Named after a 19th century occupier who ran the site as a curiosity shop, the present day Edwins pays tribute with a scattering of delicate artefacts to add a subtle quirk amidst brown leather banquettes, handsome furniture and soft white drapes. Marking the first restaurant opening by the Parched Pubs group, the brasserie incorporates a small cocktail bar which glitters under soft orange lighting after dark – a great place for romance. Compact classiness extends to the menu, with a short, varied selection including guinea fowl with melt-in-the-mouth butter beans or delicately cooked wild venison with a smudge of shallot purée. With only three desserts to choose from expectations are high, but easily met with a light, crunchy pear and almond tart topped with Chantilly cream. Also open for weekend brunch, the window-lined space provides a fresh, light setting for pancakes and coffee. Edwins shows all the signs of becoming a popular local secret, but with such assured presentation and hosting, word might just get out.

And while the layout still bears some resemblance to just that, the feeling completely changes once you get to the main room. We were greeted with enthusiasm and quickly relieved of our coats, bags, and helmets (yep we’re a cycling crew) before being ushered graciously to our table...

  1. The acceptable part of Borough High Street ends very sharply at Borough Tube Station, and nobody would ever expect to need to pass the station. Until now...
