Square Meal Review of Magdalen ?

Away from the bustle of London Bridge, and without the riverside allure of some of its neighbours, this unshowy restaurant is nonetheless well worth seeking out. Bentwood chairs, burgundy walls and polished wooden floors provide an understated backdrop for some ‘highly accomplished’, confident and relaxed cooking that allows seasonal produce to shine. Traditional British flavours meet ‘nose to tail’ French technique on a daily menu of dishes with vintage depth – from a starter of ham hock, Jersey royals and soft-boiled egg to a generous plate of baked rabbit leg with barley, bacon and nettles. After that, try prune and almond tart or choose from a carefully curated selection of Anglo-French cheeses. Staff are welcoming, the ‘really interesting’ wine list includes plenty of inviting carafes, and the set lunch is another good reason to visit.

  1. Recommended by a friend’s colleague, five of us Japanese finance girls in London ventured to the Magdalen last week for our girls night out, the location of London Bridge often chosen as a good compromise for the City vs Canary Wharf crowd that needs to be accommodated. Part of the modern day phenomenon, relying dangerously too much on Google maps, I wasted a few minutes walking up and down the corner of Tooley and Shand Street before activating my brain the tiniest bit and actually checking the address which indicated that Google maps was in fact lying to me, the restaurant being just one block down on Tooley Street itself...
