Yet another coup for Renaissance, London’s most forward-thinking renovators of heritage gastropubs, mixed-use accommodation and entertainment venues, The Tommyfield takes its curious name from the local Kennington market that housed Britain’s first fish and chip shop. Needless to say, you can expect only the best fish and chips, made from sustainably-harvested fish from English waters, to emerge from this kitchen in London’s Kennington Lane. Not to mention their superlative pie and mash…
Besides The Tommyfield’s sterling British cuisine, made from only the freshest, locally-sourced and seasonal ingredients, there is a lot to be said for the physical form and Lambeth location of this excellent gastropub. The same standards of design and attention to detail apply to The Tommyfield’s heritage architecture and decor as to each and every one of the Renaissance’s stunning renovation projects. The Tommyfield, located along London’s Kennington Lane, features six distinctly decorated hotel rooms on the top two floors, plus a Master Bedroom, a private-hire function space that is both decorated in a tasteful vintage style and kitted out with the latest audio-visual gear for pumping parties.
The Tommyfield’s remit may sound high-class, and indeed the trappings of buttoned-down English aristocracy are all there, but this spot in the Lambeth neighbourhood of Kennington is, at base, a classic London pub. Unpretentious, but with well-considered trimmings. A well-stocked bar is but the beginning – turn to The Tommyfield’s menus and be blown away by the range and sophistication on display there, all at reasonable prices. Including London’s best fish and chips.
Lovely food and drink, the menu is fairly short but changes regularly. Interesting specials and pies. The staff are always friendly and helpful. The comedy club upstairs on a Thursday is an extra treat. Enjoy good food and big laughs all at one venue.
One of the best Sunday roasts in London. The food and service is always good. Even though it gets busy it never feels too packed.
Delicious, home cooked food with a good amount of variety. Restaurant had a lovely atmosphere, and food/drinks were reasonably priced for London. Will definitely be back soon.
