We have eaten here a couple of times, but not for ages. The food was absolutely delicious, especially the dessert. Great portions of well prepared food, that is also well presented. Sadly the service was slow, but we were not in a hurry - I think too many diners arrive at the same time and this must put pressure on... More

Trip Advisor flagged this place up for me. Their web-site looked good so I decided to visit last Friday. I knew they close for a couple of hours in the afternoon so I planned the day carefully. I even knew what I wanted to order when I got there! I spent 35 minutes on the bus, arriving at 1.20pm. The... More

A first class restaurant with a first class chef (Dorchester trained, I believe). A fairly short menu, but always a variety of specials, changing from day to day. The presentation is a touch nouvelle cuisine, but it is always a satisfying meal. What astounded me, the first time I chatted with the chef, was how much time and effort goes... More

A surprising find in this western end of Enfield, near Enfield Chase Station. Hard to describe cuisine but it is a mux of classic simple French Brasserie with a mix of mediterranean cooking and UK influenced style. The prices are not low but not excessive either, and the menu du jour offers excellent value when available. Staff are competent generally... More

Again another great evening in this family run restaurant (James and Moira Greer and their three sons) and boy do they make you feel at home. The Beautiful South has a very warm and friendly atmosphere (it is a busy restaurant so reserve a table). They have a comprehensive and well thought out menu to satisfy most tastes, with good...

To be fair my food was delicious. Unfortunately when I say I'm allergic to any type of dairy this means things cooked with butter ... I suffered later. The restaurant is immaculate and clean. But quite cold and since service was slow we all were very chilly. And it was very slow. There were very few at lunch time, it... More

I Chose this Restaurant when we had overseas relatives visiting us and as we've been here several times before and have never been disappointed I was confident in returning again. We were lucky enough to get a big circular table which was perfect for our group. As always the superb food and attentive service we received was perfect.

James Greer (chef/proprietor) started his career at Killybegs catering college in County Donegal which enabled him to enter some of Europe’s most prestigious kitchens. To mention a few; Robert Carriers, Hilton Park Lane, London’s Governor House, Hilton Zurich and the Black Forest’s Gasthof Zum Lowen.

Whilst working as Head Chef at the Royal Lancaster Hotel that he met his wife Moira, who was positioned in the banqueting department alongside acclaimed caterer Faye Schneider.

In 1998 they achieved their dream of opening their own restaurant, the Beautiful South.

“Over the last 15 years I have developed and adapted the menus to show off my passion for cooking and would now describe the food as modern French with a British influence.

I prefer to use seasonal produce in the dishes and menus that I create. I select local suppliers whenever possible, allowing me to get the freshest products ingredients delivered daily.

We create and cook all our dishes in the restaurant which also includes a fantastic selection of desserts. We also have experience of banqueting in major London hotels and are able to cater and offer help with organising any special events such as Conferences, Weddings, Christenings, Birthdays, Bar Mitzvahs etc.”
