SquareMeal Review of Belair House

There’s no doubt that Beauberry House, with its Georgian good looks & white stucco exterior, makes a fine setting for a wedding or period costume drama, but when it comes to dining, things get rather confused. There’s little to suggest the restaurant, now known as Belair House, exists: no sign greets you from the road & the website rarely mentions the place by name. White leather banquettes & black glass vases give the high-ceilinged dining room a modern, monochrome colour scheme that’s out of step with the classical architecture. A broadly French menu (chicken-liver parfait, grilled veal fillet) makes occasional forays into Japanese cuisine with dishes such as crispy squid & Alaskan black cod, but readers report muted flavour & small portions.

Saturday 14.15hours.What a disaster,just three plus a twenty month old,just a b b q menu because of a wedding.we were the only people wanting to eat,ordering was an ordeal,writing down our order was an ordeal and putting it on the computer was an ordeal,paying was relatively easy,with cash. We understood the kitchen was busy with the event,so as it approached an hour from paying we questioned the bar staff to be told our order had gone missing,lost,not to be found. If I had not paid cash getting a refund would have been another ordeal. The outside seating was grotty,not clean,and the immediate surroundings to the house on the park side were so dirty that they were a health hazard for children,empty bottles broken crockery,and the structure of this beautiful house is being neglected,such a shame.

Reviews above are a bit unfair – do you just want to create another samey gastro restauro fine-dino kind of place? Belair is different and quirky. The building is magnificent. The restaurant benefits from being totally unpretentious. I loved the food and the service for its offhand but genuinely attentive and considerate quality. TIRED of obsequious waiters. Wake up Dulwich, it's a gem!!!

The room was nearly empty on a Friday night. The decor was cold and dated, as was the muzak. The wine list was astonishingly brief. The menu was incoherent – just to be clear, they're still attempting that Japanese/French fusion nonsense – and the food was sub Café Rouge standard. Sadly the prices didn't match. One to avoid.
