Tucked away on Tunnel Road in Rotherhithe, Simplicity is the very definition of a hidden local gem, and one that deserves a much higher profile – at least, according to fans who say it’s “great for a cosy meal with family and friends”. Inside it feels bright and friendly, with decor that’s as no-nonsense as the name and prices that are refreshingly honest too. The kitchen works to a menu of uncomplicated seasonal dishes with obvious British and European overtones – from plates of charcuterie or toasted goats’ cheese salad with onion marmalade to beer-battered fish and chips, sirloin steak with béarnaise or roast Gressingham duck breast with apricot and orange sauce. It’s also worth saving some room for one of the daily dessert specials, fruit crumbles and ice creams. Weekend brunch is appreciated by the locals, while wine drinkers can dip into Simplicity's carefully compiled international list.
