Artisans Of Sardinia

Artisans Of Sardinia was Highly Commended in the Fine Dining Restaurant of the Year category of the T&L Food and Culture Awards 2023. This small restaurant has a cosy and intimate feel and it’s the warm welcome of the owner Massimo and his team which sets it apart. The traditional Sardinian restaurant is great for a treat night out.


The Telegraph

You don’t have to travel far in this busy metropolis to find a country pub. The Telegraph, on the edge of Putney Heath, is the perfect escape. Set in beautiful surroundings and serving pub classics plus some more exotic dishes like Sicilian fish stew, the menu is uploaded daily on to its website before midday to reflect the seasonality of the dishes.



A charming and elegant Indian restaurant. You can choose form their small plates selection, which includes succulent hand-dived Nariyal scallops in coconut milk and turmeric, and 24-hours marinated Pondicherry lamb chops with mint chutney. Their larger plates selection features a delicious Bengal fisherman’s curry with fresh water prawns, scallops and monkfish. Cilantro is definitely one to add to the list if you’re a fan of seafood curries.



Gazette Brasserie

This chic and elegant French brasserie serves up fantastic seasonal food in a delightfully intimate yet stylish dining environment. Their menu is inspired by the classics of delicious French dining, including gorgeous seafood dishes and a chef’s special of roasted quail served with foie gras, morel sauce and crushed purple potatoes.


Home SW15

Home SW15 is a local friendly bistro serving all the brunch and lunch crowd pleasers such as eggs benedict, steak sandwich and caesar salads but with a more ambitious dinner menu featuring the likes of tuna tataki, venison carpaccio, mussels and churros with chocolate dipping sauce. One of its trademark dishes is the Sunday beef wellington (pictured below), which you have to pre-order. The restaurant prides itself on caring about what it does and looking after the customer, and it shows.



Serving divine food from the Kashmiri region, Kashmirelevates your dining experience with the ritual of washing your hands in an ornate vessel known as a Tashtri. The menu offers up singular delights of scrumptious biryanis, chicken dishes and seafood. They also have an extensive vegetarian menu on offer, including an amazing baigan ka bhartha: smoked aubergine mashed and cooked with green peas, onions and tomatoes in a traditional Punjabi style.



Blades has been Putney’s local Italian restaurant since 1977 so its longevity speaks for itself. All the usual antipasti and pasta dishes are there plus mains such as calves liver, grilled lamb chops, steaks, sea bass, scallops and prawns. Rustic decor on the interior and a few outside tables for summer evenings make this a reliable neighbourhood destination for a casual dinner with friendly service. 


Thai Square

The panoramic view of the river is what sets Thai Square apart; a great place to catch some of the action on the Oxford/Cambridge Boat Race day – it even has a boat race set menu then. The building has won architectural awards based on its design – the exterior looks like a ship with metal beams and tall windows with its prow looking onto the bridge. The staff, dressed in traditional Thai costumes, are attentive and polite. The stand out dish is the whole steamed sea bass with ginger. There are good value lunch and early bird offers available. 


Roxie Steak

A delightful steak restaurant serving up steaks from primarily the Pampas Regions of Uruguay, from a mix of grain and grass fed cattle. You can choose from picanha, sirloin, fillet, rump and ribeye as well as the new, crowd-pleasing Butcher’s Cuts. They also have a range of hearty burgers to sink your teeth into, including ‘The Argentinian,’ with gorgeously tender strips of steak, caramelised onions and chimichurri.



If you are a fan of unlimited grilled meat, Preto Restaurant is the place for you. This is a casual churrascaria which attracts customers for its reasonable pricing, especially when using the extensive offers such as 2 for 1 Rodizio on Wednesdays. There is a buffet for sides with some Brazilian hallmarks like feijoada (black bean and pork stew). The meat (beef, chicken, pork) comes to your table regularly to be carved by roving waiters who are friendly and generous.
