Stylish yet unpretentious, head to this Dartmouth Street bar and restaurant in London’s Forest Hill to dine on classic pub food and British dishes in an elegant but relaxed setting. Whether it is for afternoon tea – The Hill Lounge Bar and Kitchen’s traditional offering consists of cocktail sandwiches, freshly-baked scones with creme chantilly and fruit jam, homemade cakes and an assortment of quality teas – or something from the main menu, you’ll find an array of choices.
We love the pan-seared chicken supreme served on a bed of pesto crushed potatoes drizzled with a chorizo, red pepper and sun-blush tomato sauce, and the oven-roasted salmon wrapped in parma ham with a Mediterranean sauce and Lyonnaise potatoes, but it is the Sunday roast that steals the show over at The Hill Lounge Bar and Kitchen. Choose from lamb, beef, slow-cooked pork shoulder, or the vegetarian option, all served with roasted potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, carrot and swede mash, cauliflower in a creamy cheese sauce, broccoli, carrots and honey and rosemary parsnip… it is no surprise that the hungry population of London’s Forest Hill flock here on Sundays. With a function room also available, The House Lounge Bar and Kitchen is the perfect place to celebrate a birthday, wedding or baby shower. Booking in advance is recommended!
There is great food, nice staff and cool music. Reasonably priced meals and offers on cocktails and wine. The venue is clean, comfortable and has good transport links.
Had afternoon tea here today and what an amazing job they did! They even went out of their way to cater for our vegetarian diet and everything tasted wonderful! 100% recommend
I do love it here. Food is always on point and wished that I got to visit more often. Took my slightly fussy Mum for Mother's Day lunch and she thoroughly enjoyed her Sunday Roast and we all were definitely stuffed after two courses. My daughter loved the asparagus starter and the butternut and coconut soup was out of this world. Looking forward to my next visit. Lovely, cosy, child friendly place with an attractive little (and relatively quiet) beer garden
