Wimbledon is a great place to live but despite the number of big houses around the restaurant scene has been vary lacking. Sure there are a great number of restaurants with good food, Cannizaro, Lighthouse, Fire Stables, Cotes, Dog & Fox and Butcher & Grill but the appallingly slow and poor service (especially those last 2) dosn’t engender a return visit let alone becoming a regular destination.
But hurrah for Claude Bosi and the newly opened Fox and Grapes, as that seems to have now changed. It fits perfectly between fine dining and a gastro pub, with the menu successfully spanning the two.
On my visit, their second night, I went more restaurant end for my starter a snail, rose veal and pancetta lasagne, which came with a super rich sauce. Then for main I erred to the Gastro end having battered Hake and chips, crispy batter coating super moist fish. Pudding was a treacle tart, again super yum.
I am now looking forward to a return in a few weeks time, not only is this a great boost for Wimbledon foodies but I hope the other near-do-well restaurants will take note and raise their game too.
P.S. Squaremeal, it is more a restaurant so be more pertinent to have food score rather than a drinks score.
