About The French House - East Dulwich

Inspired by yé-yé, a style of French 60’s pop music, The French House is a restaurant with lots of style. From its retro-inspired decor, shabby-chic furnishings and murals of yé-yé poster girls adorning the walls, to its menu full of classic French dishes, London’s The French House is full of understatedly cool French charm. We recommend indulging in a croque monsieur (a toasted ham and emmental cheese sandwich with bechamel sauce) followed by one of The French House’s freshly baked pastries, paired with a bottle of wine. For some delectable French cuisine with a side of stylish 60’s and 70’s nostalgia, head on over to The French House on Lordship Lane. To guarantee a table at this East Dulwich favourite, make a reservation in advance (but remember there’s another in Crystal Palace).

The food was great and the service was excellent. We have wanted to try this restaurant for a while and so glad we finally did. Will definitely be returning!

A fairly limited menu with a lot of cheese so probably not good for the lactose intolerant but the staff were charming. I would happily go again.

The French House is a lovely little place with great service, amazing raclette and delicious fondue! Will definitely go back again for more cheese-based treats!
