Light on the Common re-opened in February 2014 after undergoing a refurbishment. The restaurant is now warmer and cosier with a more intimate feel. The restaurant is committed and proud to use only the best and freshest seasonal ingredients in our ever evolving menus. We are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and look forward to seeing you soon.
Excellent food and service in a lovely situation. Would certainly return. Look forward to visiting for both lunch and morning coffee. Are dogs allowed at the outside tables?
Very welcoming atmosphere, cosy and warm with a real fire. The food was of an excellent standard with a good variety but not overwhelming. We will definitely be returning.
Great food and fast, friendly service. Lovely atmosphere too. I also thought it was good value for money considering the well-above average food. We'll be back!
Lovely atmosphere, staff very attentive and food was exceptionally good!
It was our first time at Light on the Common. The staff were friendly, and the level of service was good. Unfortunately we found the food distinctly average, and some things just not good at all (my Mum's sourdough toast which was served with her pate was too hard to eat, and the sweet chilli sauce with the squid was more like a syrup). All in all we found it disappointing, particularly when you consider lunch for two with a bottle of wine came to £90 incl. tip.
A very good local staple. 5 of us had dinner there last night and it was a good choice for a friends' night out. Service was friendly and attentive, food was above averagely good, portions spot on (large, if anything). Only small niggles might be the overly bright lighting and the lack of a cocktail menu, but overall a very good evening only a few steps away from Hemingways (which is a very good cocktail bar).
