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.
Great choice of veggie options and very friendly efficient service. I was torn between the veggie pie and the battered halloumi although the pasta dish looked good too!
I had a great time. I went to Tommyfield to see the comedy upstairs, but got there early to have something to eat first. Great venue, with great food & friendly service..:)
Amazing Camembert board with fantastic sweet potato fried and honey!
