A favourite daytime refuge for Parsons Green’s lunching ladies, Hally’s has extended its Californian-inspired repertoire to dinner on Thursday and Friday. Come the evening, the impeccably styled beach-house interior – bleached-wood cladding, stripped timber furniture and Moroccan tiles – gets a heavy dose of moody lighting to match a pithy menu of eclectic seasonal food (with cocktails to match): crispy avocado fries with wasabi and lime mayo might precede grilled sea bass with quinoa, charred courgettes and gremolata or roast chicken breast with gnocchi and wild mushrooms, while puds could yield chocolate mousse with honeycomb. At other times, there are funky breakfasts, “great” weekend brunches and light lunchtime deals – think soup, deli sandwiches, pasta and salads with a sunny outlook. Competitive pricing and eager-to-please service are just right for this charming spot. Also check out Little H – a diminutive sibling across the road.
