Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is another iteration of the Gladwin Brothers’ sustainably sourced attack uoon many a SW London High Street. From a Rabbit in the King’s Road to a Notting Hill Shed via a temporary dead end taking over whst had been Ransome’s Dock Battersea they have...now supplanted Wimbledon High Street’s Lawn with their Sussex Nutbourne meat and vegetables. Black Lamb fits well in affluent Wimbledon village whose locals are well used to premium-priced wines, well-priced mains requiring additional sides, a waiter who expresses surprise if not mild irritation when diners are content with tap water rather than expensive bottles from a West Sussex spring. We enjoyed the likes of pecorino and asparagus ravioli, bavette steak and a salmon salad but were slightly irritated when our side of potatoes came with our starters.More

Mains were good, i.e. pork. Shouldn't have to pay extra for sides of cabbage (with 3 tiny pieces of pancetta), good jacket potatoes. Starter of excellent burarata, overpowered by chilli sauce. Puddings, apart from lemon posset enjoyed by one of my party, were well under...in flavour and size. Apple and rhubarb tart was the size of a jam tart! Where was the custard, ice cream or clotted cream? My grandparents would have thought it a joke before the sense of being taken for a ride took over. Where was the value, the heart and soul of British deserts...generous portion of scrumptious apples in a tart, jug of steaming custard? Not at the Black Lamb. And it wasn't cheap. £195 without alcohol for three. £26 pounds service charge was removed with a "What all of it?". Yes please.More

First time here after a recommendation from a friend. We had originally booked brunch but decided on the Sunday roast instead. Staff were very accommodating to adjust our booking. Very nice , freshly cooked roast , very generous portions. Nice relaxed atmosphere…. Our waitress, Ash..., was extremely pleasant and attentive. Would highly recommend a visit and will definitely return.More

We ordered a main course only, we all ordered the same meal, beef bavette. We waited quite a while to receive our meal, when it arrived it was cold, my father in law was ok to eat his (it really should have went back) all...the food was lukewarm or cold. 3 meals went back, we waited a good 20 mins for the food to be re-served. We were told by the waiter there will be a slight delay until our food would be served as the chef had to recook, We were then told by the manager it would be 5 mins until our food arrived as the restaurant was full! Absolutely no excuse for any delays the food should have been hot in the first place. When the food arrived they brought 4 fresh plates , even though my father in law had eaten his, this was a nice touch. However again we had lukewarm steak and cabbage, piping hot roast potatoes and cold charred onions! We asked for the bill and was told they had removed the service charge due to the issues we had, fair play but we wouldn’t have paid it anyway. Our wait was noticed by other guests who said, I have to say you have been extremely patient! The quality of the food and presentation was good, just not warm.More

Pleasant and welcoming ambience in this little gem in the heart of Wimbledon village. Our server, Gabriella was extremely warm and friendly. We had the tasting menu and it was fantastic, especially the marmite eclairs. Incredible value for money.

Thought we’d give this place another try after a previously disappointing experience and sadly no improvement. Attractive elegant yet chintzy decor with cosy Sunday ambience interrupted only intermittently by precocious kiddies banging on tables. We opted for the Sunday roasts but they arrived cold with...dry over-cooked Yorkshire puddings, tasteless insipid gravy that seemed only to have seen a stock cube and cornflour, almost raw uncuttable celeriac, and the star of the plate, 3 tiny wafer-thin pieces of strip-loin beef, that was more gristle and fat than meat. Uptick was the delicious sympathetically cooked pork chop, carrot and garlic roasties served by our courteous friendly waiter, Gabrielle who was welcoming, attentive and empathetically did not charge us for the roast beef meal. £35 lighter for 1 roast pork plate and 2 litres of sparkling water, we left disappointed again. Not a single acknowledgment from the management resulted in us cancelling our Valentine’s reservation; not wanting a repeat of disappointing experience. We won’t be back 👎More

Had phenomenal, well balanced, varied “regenuary” tasting menu with matched wines (and terrific service from Gabriella). Reasonably priced for what we had. The mussels with chorizo, and the venison were stand outs. Nice buzz in the restaurant - local eatery vibe with serious food. Top...notch. Will be back.More

Visited the Black Lamb for a Sunday Lunch with a party of 6 for a birthday. The service was terrible. Sure it was medium busy but the main waiter/maitre’d was so rude. (Italian/French older guy). His attitude was off and the same can be said...for the rest of the staff. As for the actual meal itself. £24 for a roast dinner that contains 3 measly potatoes and a meal that barely fills the plate is a bit of a rip off. Farm to plate I can understand but it’s just not good value for money. Save your £ and go to The Rose and Crown down the road - Also they forgot my Roast Potatoes on my plate so it looked very bare - I had to ask multiple waiters 3 times if I could have some (one for every potato on the plate) Prententious, Poor Sevice, Overpriced, save your money and go to any other one of Wimbledon Village’s hotspots.More
