SquareMeal Review of Grumbles

Hilarious staff photos stretching back to the 1960s are a reminder that this quaint little bistro has been doing its thing here for almost 50 years – dishing up much-loved international favourites to punters who sit elbow-to-elbow at tightly packed tables and squeeze onto narrow wooden pews. Kick off with grilled goats’ cheese on a crouton with caramelised red onion, before tackling fish pie, Moroccan vegetable tagine, char-grilled calf’s liver or duck confit with red cabbage. Grumbles is also valued for its fair prices: expect change from a £20 note for two courses, or trim the budget even further by plumping for the set lunch/early-evening menu. Traditional Sunday lunches (till 4pm) are a hit with the locals, while the wine list spends most of its time in the classic French regions: on Monday nights you can also BYO (no corkage).

Grumbles is a slice of London life of my vintage – we have grown up together time wise, although I have only fairly recently started using the place. What a pleasure. A room that you know hasn't changed much since the 60s , a menu of mostly hearty fare – well cooked and good portions, the Sunday lunch is always a favourite. Many local returning customers tells it's own story. Great spot. Long may it stay serving Pimlico.

Grumbles is a fantastic restaurant, it always has a lively atmosphere, the service is faultless and the food is delicious. If anyone is ever in this area I would definitely advise a visit!
