About Wimsey's

Great Britain is writ large at Wimsey’s, the Parsons Green restaurant renowned for its emphatically British offering – from the seasonal and locally-sourced produce, to the tenor of the dishes themselves. Ideally located along New King’s Road, at the southern tip of Eel Brook Common and close to Parsons Green itself, Wimsey’s draws droves from around London to its chic dining rooms and quaint terraces for brunch, lunch, dinner, and a great selection of wines (with British vintages to boot!)

More about Wimsey's, London

London’s Wimsey’s was born when Gwyn Rees-Sheppard returned from a long stint in Italy, where he was inspired by the Italians’ commitment to regional and local cuisines. Back in Britain, Rees-Sheppard found that the closer he looked at his native cuisine, the more he found to explore – common and less well-known ingredients, regional variations and curious dishes, the nuances of the British culinary tradition. Wimsey’s, then, down New King’s Road, is an expression of Rees-Sheppard’s desire to rehabilitate and celebrate British cuisine in all its glory, and this Parsons Green restaurant has quickly become a fixture on London’s dining map.

Where better to sample Wimsey’s representative British delicacies than a peek at their specials. Only available during evening dinner service (Wimsey’s New King’s Road premises get busy at this time), the restraint of this modest list belies its impact in the eating: something as simple as sauteed clams with a white wine and garlic sauce subtly evoke the briny British coast. The a la carte menu at this Parsons Green institution expands on this ethos of simplicity, allowing the ingredients to speak for themselves in dishes like the pan-fried buttered duck breast with dauphine potatoes and orange sauce. And any fan of British fodder can’t go past the cheeseboard at one of London’s best of British restaurants – a dessert-ready selection of British cheese with quince jelly, grapes, and biscuits.

We tried the restaurant for the first time last week: Top quality food, extensive menu, friendly service, we can't wait to go back. It is just a shame it wasn't busier.

A very pleasant evening with lovely food. It was a belated Christmas present to my brother and sister in law and I'm happy I booked for us to eat at Wimsey's. Very comfortable restaurant with pleasant staff. Would certainly go there again.

Wonderful food. Such a great location. They just need to go out in Fulham and get people in. There's no atmosphere at the moment because of lack of clientele. Such a shame because the place Is very nicely styled with very nice loos. Cmon Fulham. Visit Wimseys and have a nice meal

Good food atmosphere and service. My Venison Cottage Pie was their 'own interpretation' and not to my liking. So be it. I am prepared to give them another try and choose something different. Tony

Excellent food and service at brunch yesterday. I can't understand why more people are not visiting this fine restaurant. I will certainly visit again for lunch or dinner.
