London is a city designed with dining in mind, and thusly the culinary scene in the capital is as diverse as its population. The Rosemary – on New Cross Road, just yards from New Cross Gate station in, you guessed it, New Cross – is an outpost of Hungarian cuisine with an emphasis on fresh and organic ingredients, which are used in traditional Central European recipes to create a cuisine that is quite unlike any other available in South London.
Great place - good wine and food! Went with my girlfriend who is from Budapest and she approved too! ☺️ We can definitely recommend this place!
Excellent , friendly service. Ambiance warm and relaxing. Food very flavoursome end delicious. It is so good to have a really special local restaurant which also has musicians from time to time and is part of the local community.
It's a nice place, but I find the food a bit blant and overpriced... Service was pleasant though. I probably won't be dining there again...
Hungarian cuisine may not be the most well-known and the most celebrated in London, but at The Rosemary on New Cross Road, it is thrust to the fore. Their take on the unique food of this Central European nation is based on a sense of community: traditional, time-honoured recipes, cooked using organic and locally-sourced ingredients. They have their own organically-certified farm in Welling and they are active within the New Cross area to educate and inform the local population about healthy eating and nutrition.
The community outreach is one thing, but a restaurant lives and dies on its menu. Lucky then, that New Cross Road’s The Rosemary serves up a Hungarian menu that delights diners. The iconic Hungarian goulash is present, of course, as are other paprika-based stews and plenty of roast meats and sausages. Pickles, salads, tofu dishes and cheeses are perfect for vegetarian visitors to New Cross, and there are many gluten-free options as well.
