Edwin’s, Borough

A visit to Edwin’s has become an almost weekly occurrence.

The restaurant is located just about Borough station, and it’s quite easy to miss – just a little blue door nestled between the station and the next café over.

Follow the stairs up and you’ll find a bright and charming room filled with eclectic but modern furnishings. It’s always got such a nice atmosphere, but it’s never rammed (although I’d strongly recommend making a reservation to avoid disappointment).

I always describe Edwin’s as ‘new English’, which has fast become one of my favourite cuisines – traditional dishes and ingredients, but presented in a contemporary and interesting way.

I highly recommend getting a few of the small plates to share – they are all so delicious, and I love getting to try a little bit of everything.

I’ve been about five or six times now, but only ever during the week, but everything I have tried on the weekday lunch menu has been absolutely fantastic.

My favourite small plates include the purple sprouting broccoli, which is topped with duck egg, cobnut and beurre noisette. The combination of flavours with the duck egg and the hazelnuts is really incredible, and is definitely a dish I get every time.

The rabbit with spinach polenta, which is served with a little parmesan is also lovely, but the wood pigeon with Jerusalem artichoke, mushroom and port is the real star of the small plates. It’s absolutely incredible, and while you might have to keep an eye out for shot, it’s really not a dish to be missed.

The roasted plaice with salsify, fennel, Pernod and mussel sauce is also delicious, and the oxtail stew that I’ve had previously is so comforting. The stew is served with garlic mash, and the sauce is heavenly – if you don’t mind a bit of a fiddly dish, then I’d really recommend you try it.

The only downside for me is that the desserts all seem to be flour-based, so I haven’t managed to try any, but given that I’m not one for desserts anyway it’s not too much of a problem for me at all!

Edwin’s is perfect for client lunches, or lunch with friends – it’s got such an intimate, quiet and lovely atmosphere, so if you’re ever in the London Bridge area I wholeheartedly recommend you check it out.
